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. If you're using Shopify POS for Android, then you can apply a cart discount by entering a code that you've created in your Shopify admin.

Note

You can't enter a discount code in Shopify POS for iPad or iPhone.
