How to use Sales
Sales are used to temporarily set discounted prices in your store. The main difference between Tasks is that Sales can be scheduled to start and stop automatically.
First, you need to specify the title of the Sale. It is used only internally and is not visible to customers.
Next, you need to specify the discount. You can either decrease the price by a certain percent/amount:
Or set a new price:
Compare at price
Compare at price is a field in Shopify that is used to show the crossed-out amount next to the discounted price. Basically, it shows the original price of the product before the discount.
By default, we suggest you to set compare at price to the old price. This way the discounted price will be shown in your store.
Alternatively, you could set the compare at price manually. In that case, make sure that it's higher than the price. Otherwise, the discounted price won't be shown in your store.
Choose to which products you want to apply the Sale.
You can choose the start date and time for the Sale. By default, if you'll keep the start time unchanged, the Sale will start immediately after creation.
Also, you can optionally specify the end date and time for the Sale.
If you specified the end date and time for the Sale then it will be disabled automatically in that time. Overwise you can always disable Sale manually using Disable button.
