Shopify discount apps

There’s no denying the power of combining urgency and our human proclivity for saving a buck. Discounts and coupons can make a big impact, but how do you make them work for your brand? 

Hacking deep into your margin isn’t a sustainable strategy, but there are several clever ways to tap into the customer purchasing psyche without sabotaging your profits.

There’s science behind it: deals actually make people happier.

In ecommerce marketing, happy customers mean more sales. A good psychological pricing strategy (combined with a well-developed Shopify discount app) can do that. 

We’ve handpicked a cross-section of the best Shopify discount apps to suit a range of budgets. Whether you’re running a BOGO (buy one, get one) deal, trying to grow your student audience, or counting down to a massive site wide sale, there’s a niche app to help you do just that.
