Applying discounts to the whole cart

A cart discount (or order-specific discount) is applied to all items in the Shopify POS cart. A cart discount can be a flat dollar value or a percentage of the cart value. You can also apply fixed value or percentage discount codes that you create in the Shopify admin or Shopify app, as long as all the items in the cart meet the discount code's requirements.

To allow your staff to use cart discounts, give your staff permissions to Apply custom discounts for custom discounts or Apply discount codes for discount codes applied to the whole cart. Learn more about POS staff permissions.

To easily apply discounts to your customer's carts, you can add an Apply discount tile to your smart grid.
