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 are created in the Shopify admin or Shopify app, as long as all the items in the cart meet the discount code's requirements.
