How to allow multiple discounts on upsell products on Shopify (video)

Typically, customers buy a single item of the upsell product. That’s why we have also limited discounts, so they are always used only for a single product (as per screenshot below). It’s so-called buy X get Y with the discount approach.

By default, the discount is applied only to one upsell product

If you want to allow your customers to buy more than one of the upsells with the same discount, follow the steps in this article. Essentially you will achieve this if a customer buys 1+ of upsell product:

Step 3 – Add all upsell products to the discount

Stay in the same discount as in Step 2 or go to Discounts » Codes and find the relevant discount code from the list.

Find the section Applies to which defines to which item will the discount apply. Specific products should be selected by default.

Add all other upsell products you want to share the same % discount.

Important Note

  1. Make sure to repeat steps 2 & 3 for all existing bundle offers. I.e. if you are offering 4 upsell products on the pop-up, you will need to edit 4 different discounts.
  2. If you edit the offer in Candy Rack the relevant discount settings will be reset and you will need to perform steps 2 & 3 again.
