I just finished coding up a new addition to discount codes for single-owner (HC Multi) stores — the ability to specify valid categories for your discount codes. This enables you to customize which discount codes work for which items. Remember, you can place items in multiple categories, so you could create a separate “Sale” category, place items in that category using the “Batch edit” function, and then specify that your discount code only work on items in that “Sale” category.
A few things to note:
- % off discounts will only be applied to items in the valid categories
- $ off discounts will only apply if at least one item within the order is valid
- free shipping discounts will only apply if all items in the order are valid
Hope this comes in handy over the holiday season!
