Bulk Discount Manager

Easily schedule & automate discounts in bulk!

We offer sitewide tiered discounts based on product variants however, Shopify only allows us to apply the same discount uniformly across all variants of a product…The app enables us to tailor our discounts more precisely, allowing us to target specific products we wish to sell more of (e.g., clearing out a particular size). This strategy benefits our warehouse operations and profit margins, as it allows us to maintain full pricing on sizes we prefer not to discount
