Q. The Discount Links or the Discount Rules are not working, what should I do?
A. First, check if the discount code exists in your Discounts section in the left menu of your Shopify store. Then check if you put the same discount code where it should be for the link (or the rule) to work.
Q. I tested once and it worked, but the other times it didn’t.
A. If you test really hard several times in a short period of time, it’s not a typical use case of a customer. The discount will be automatically applied once per user per session. Try to test in incognito mode or with another browser.
Q. The rule is applied at checkout, but if I go back and edit the cart, then go back again to the checkout, the same rule is still applied.
A. This shouldn't happen. Maybe try another cart type for the cart page (instead of the popup cart or modal cart for example).
*Q. I tried everything but the app still doesn't work!
*A. Go inside the file called theme.liquid in Online Store > Theme > Edit Html/Css. Search for
Then, insert this line of code
If you still have problems, send a zip copy of your theme to email@example.com.
Q. I test on mobile at blazing speed and I click-click-click until I reach checkout and it didn't work.
A. Usually when we test we don't reproduce the behavior of a real customer who would take more than 2 seconds to purchase a product, at least the time to read the title and some description. Our app needs a bit of time to fire automatically the discount, which means more than a tiny fraction of second, especially if you have a lot of other apps and/or a slow theme. To solve it, you can try to test a bit slower. Make sure you clear your cache or test incognito.
Q. The app doesn’t work. My store is not launched yet, it’s “coming soon” and we still have the password protected feature enabled.
A. The Automatic Discount app can’t work on a store where the password protected option is enabled. We use a cookie to make it work, and when your site is protected by a password, the app doesn’t work because the login is not saved in a cookie. As soon you disable the password protected option, the app will work.
Q. My store requires login before checkout. Is that causing the Automatic Discount not to work?
A. The app can't work right now if you require sign in / sign up before a purchase. The reason is that we use a cookie to make it work, and the login is not saved in a cookie. If the customer is already signed in when he reaches your store it should work. But if he has to sign in just before checkout, it won't. To make it work, switch from “Accounts are required” to “Accounts are optional”.
