How to automatically apply a discount to a customer group in Shopify

Hi Jennifer, yes you can do that with our Automatic Discount app. Here's exactly how to automatically apply a discount to a customer group:

1.Install our app:

2.Create a coupon code in the DISCOUNTS section of the left menu of Shopify.

3.Make sure this discount is available only for the CUSTOMER GROUP that you want. For Example, I created a discount called "GroupA" and then selected "Customer in group" and then I selected the group I wanted and I configured it.

4.Go in our app Automatic Discount and put the discount code you just created for this group. Here's an example below of an automatic discount for Group A based on the rule If they buy for $60 or more, they get the discount I created via the coupon code "groupA".

5.You could also share the Discount Link to this customer group, and if they buy, the discount will be applied automatically.

Shopify itself suggests two other things about discounts applied to Group Discount, in this article:

  • You won't see the option "customer in group" if you are using Guest Checkout. If you don't see it, go to Preferences > Checkout & Payment, scroll down to Customer Checkout Settings and choose Guest checkout with optional sign in or Sign in required

  • Your customers will only be able to apply the discount code if they are signed in during checkout. If Guest Checkout is available and they choose to checkout as a guest, they won't be able to use the discount code.

I hope it helped,
