How to Create Discounts Without a Code on Shopify

The cart abandonment rate in e-commerce is notably high, with 18% of carts being abandoned due to lengthy and complex checkout processes. Simplifying this process can significantly reduce cart abandonment rates and enhance customer satisfaction. Allowing customers to access discounts without manually entering a code can therefore be a masterstroke if you aim to entice customers with discounts while maintaining a seamless checkout flow.

Advantages of Offering Discounts Without Code on Shopify

Reduces Cart Abandonment

Discounts are generally used to reduce the rate of cart abandonment by incentivizing customers to complete their purchases. Automatic discounts take this a step further by eliminating friction at checkout.  Customers don’t need to search for or enter a code, removing a hurdle that might cause them to abandon their cart altogether.

Generate More Sales

A Shopify discount without a code can help generate more sales, where a discount (either as a fixed value or percentage) is automatically applied at check-out. This is helpful for site-wide sales, especially on mobile devices, and can save some marketing efforts by removing the need to promote a specific code.

In fact, it has been found that an estimated 60% of consumers are likely to try a new product as a result of a discount, and a further 46% said they’d change their original purchase to benefit from a discount.

Improved User Experience

Chuck Mazzone, Digital Marketing Director of Out-of-Print, says that “offering automatic discounts is much more seamless than sending customers discount codes they have to enter manually”. He added, that as purchases made on mobile devices increase, the usability of manually entering a discount code becomes more difficult. Mazzone added, “The real benefit with automatic discounts is that it does the work for the customer and means they have one less thing to worry about”.

How to Activate Discounts Without a Code on Shopify

To activate discounts that require no code on Shopify, you can either use the native setting or a third-party app specifically designed for this purpose and more. The former offers only basic functionality, while the latter option typically gives users more than basic discount functionalities. This is why most Shopify merchants opt for third-party apps for their discount activation and management.
