By default, Kit sets up a few things for you:

  • The discount starts the day you create it with Kit
  • The discount runs for 7 days

  • Customers can use the discount multiple times

After you create a discount with Kit, the code is active right away. You can change or deactivate the discount code from your Shopify admin.
