I have a Simple Store and it is geared towards people who coupon. The bad thing is, a Simple Store has no function to offer coupons or discounts. I think other websites would like to have this feature too.

Hi Mindi,

Awesome Idea! I know other people have mentioned this as well. I've passed your idea on to our product and development team to considered implementing this. As more people agree with your idea, I'll keep you updated on the status and hopefully ETA on when something like this could be added.

Thanks,

Chris

Please for the love of god add it.

I'm surprised this option is not available. Must merchants would use promo codes on their websites at some point. Don't you think?

Hi Bruce7689 ,

I completely agree, I think coupon codes are a very common thing and hope this is a feature we'll be able to add soon.

Thank you,

Hi Koisimy3632,   I took a look at your site and if you are really interested in coupons, then I would suggest as Drew mentioned on another post, that you try the Storefront hosting plan instead of the SimpleStore.  Not only will it give you the ability to set up a variety of different promotions, it is going to give your site a much more professional look and make it easier to navigate.

There is a very good change that this feature will be coming. Our ecommerce developers are working on numerous upgrades to the SimpeStore but will be several months down the road before everything is completed and properly QA tested etc. My best guess at this time is that it will be some time early next year.

This is a function in Storefront, but at this time it is not available in the Simplestore. If this is critical to your business, maybe it would be better to discuss a change to your ecommerce platform.

It is critical that we have coupons! This hasn't been acted on in almost a year??

We have spent most of the past year migrating all of our systems off of Intuit platforms as a result of the sale of Homestead. This particular feature is still under consideration. If it is critical to have coupons, then perhaps you would be better off with our Storefront product. Coupons are part of Storefront.

We are hoping to see that feature released in the future but with all of the changes our organization is going through, I do not have an ETA at this time.

If having coupons are critical, we do offer a Storefront ecommerce plan that has that capability. Let us know if you need more information or want to convert to that plan.

Unfortunately, Simplestore does not have a coupon feature at this time.  If this is a critical feature to you, then perhaps our Storefront would be a more appropriate package.

What are you trying to do that has you confused?

I am sorry, we are not available by phone on the weekends.

You need to add the Simplestore to a page and then make sure you add a link from the navigation menu to the store page.

There are a lot of us who don't want to use Bigcommerce or a storefront.  We have developed great websites and want to keep them looking the way they do. Storefronts are too limited.  Simple store should allow coupon codes.  Can't possible be that difficult to add.  Pushing everyone to use the storefront isn't the answer.

Thanks for the feedback Richard8458,

This will be passed on to development, but it is actually a fairly complicated bit of code to add as there are a large number of different possible ways people use coupons. You might want free shipping, % off order, % off item, etc.  Maybe you want fix $$$s off of the whole order or just off 1 item on the order.  The building of the coupon database can get very sticky.

It is still under consideration, so your vote has been counted.

Thanks

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled DISCOUNTS IN SIMPLE STORE.

Can I apply a % off discount on products...individually or across the board?

Coupons via the SimpleStore gets my vote. I'm not a fan of the StoreFront. I truly hope that you all will do the right thing and honor the request of seemingly many of your customers. After all, the customer is always right. In addition, we are paying customers. I'd even be more that willing to pay for it as a add-on to prevent me from the enduring the daunting task of rebuilding my site and uploading my products again.

I'm trying to decide which is the better way to go - simple or storefront. Can you tell me why you're not a fan of storefront?

Good day everyone!  I'm thinking of adding simplestore or storefront onto a site - does anyone mind sharing their website for me to check it out first hand?  I greatly appreciate it :D
We should have this option for the simple store. I'm losing orders from Facebook and my old high school because they have to call me personally to get the discount. Not good because other sites offer it without having to change plans to a more expensive one.

We understand, and still have not dismissed this, but every way we look at it, it would take the Simple out of Simplestore. This is why we offer the Storefront as an option. I will pass on your thoughts to the management team.

I think coupon offers would be a great idea as well. I would love to be able to implement on my store site. Please look into that quickly.

Thanks!
