Sharing Discount Codes

Including in an email campaign is likely to be the easiest because you can provide the direct URL to your Store for easy access.

Because the discount is applied at the checkout stage, customers will not see a reduction on the Product price until they are ready to pay.

This is so you can have Products with different discounts, depending on the code being used and how you have set the discount code up.
