Discount Manager - Sales Scheduler

Client Reviews (42)

Discount Manager allows you to quickly schedule sales at your store. Now you don't need to spend time updating individual product prices to run a sale, as this app automates the process!

HOW IT WORKS

Creating a sale is easy. Just select some products, set the type and size of discount you want to provide (fixed or per cent of the product's price) and decide when you want the sale to run. The app automatically creates and displays discount prices during the sale period, with original prices retained to show that prices are reduced.

Once the sale is over, the app automatically removes discount prices from your store and returns prices to their original values.

No more coupons are required for promotions and sales!

APP FEATURES:

  • Possibility to set discounts for the selected products.
  • Possibility to set discounts for the selected categories.

You can try "Discount Manager" for free at your web store for 14 days.

This app is SUPER helpful! about 7 days ago by Brad McClatchey https://shop.wgi.org/
We do a lot of online sales for this store & during our 12 Days of Saving, this app helped amazingly! I was able to set up the products & categories that were going on sale for that day and the app never missed a beat. As soon as the day ended it jumped the new one. If you have a store that has frequent promotions or sales, this app is EXTREMELY helpful.
Can't use this app if you have a big sale about 1 month ago by jbe...com https://www.focusattack.com
I might be a unique case, but after messing around with this app for more than a week, I found several problems that require that I uninstall. I noticed that I couldn't select a product that was part of an existing discount schedule. It was marked as "Used", even if the previously scheduled discount has already ended. For example, the test discount I created ended an hour ago. When I try to create a new discount, the product says "used" and I can't select it. Even if I pause the previous discount, and it has already ended, I can't select it for a new campaign. This means that that I can't actually schedule multiple discount campaigns ahead of time, even if they don't overlap. This really limits the usefulness of the app. I also noticed that error checking isn't present if you make a mistake. For example, if you accidentally discount by $20 instead of 20 percent on a product that costs under $20, it appears as $0.00 in the listing, making it free. If the app can see the actual price, why not alert the user that the discount is higher than the actual price, and disable that option until it's fixed by the user? Staffs tell me that it's not possible to use this product as I proposed, which really doesn't make sense. How can you schedule more than one campaign, or campaigns that contain multiple pricings without all this extra work to delete and create new discounts manually? The scheduler could simply perform checks on active campaigns to see whether the time to launch and end overlaps across them. If they do, then disable the conflicting products from being used in another campaign. Why should I physically have to delete a campaign that has already ended in order to use the product in another campaign? Finally, the system slows to a crawl because it isn't optimized. When you want to edit something that is active, you first have to pause it. The problem is if you have a lot of items as part of a discount campaign, you have to literally wait several minutes for the app to remove the discount, then allow you to edit. Why not instead allow the edit to take place, then check for the changes on the server once you reactivate the campaign? Overall, the app is a mess for anything but the smallest of sales, and the fewest of products. As an enterprise customer, I found it to be incredibly slow and cumbersome to use. I will be uninstalling this app and hoping someone comes up with a better app in the future.

Works as expected 3 months ago by chr...com https://www.treatyourskin.com/
Works as expected - going to be so useful for Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Christmas & New Year sales! May have issues with handling discounts on products with options that have different prices. Will have to check and adjust review - but I doubt we will be using it for those product types for now and it is something Bigcommerce needs to address first probably to help developers like these.

Works as intended 9 months ago by inf...com http://beautystore4u.co.uk
It was very easy to install and set up. It took me 10 minutes to configure my first sale. It has been scheduled and worked well. I can recommend it if you're looking to run timed sales. Just a shame it's not already included as a standard in BC.

This app is a great solution for scheduling sales in BigCommerce. If you are planning advertisements, eblasts, or social media promos, Discount Manager is a great way to pre-set your sale pricing for those. We love this app!

Marvellous App! 11 months ago by 2 Monocles AS http://www.partygrossisten.no
This little gem saves us from spending a lot of time on manually managing sales promotions. Does not currently work on Safari, but this is surely just a temporary glitch.
Love this app! 11 months ago by ski...com
Fits my needs perfectly. I've been adjusting prices for sales through spreadsheets. This makes it so much easier, and it is also great that you can schedule your sales. Perfect for holiday periods and weekend sales.

Great App! about 1 year ago by kim...com https://lappesbeesupply.com/
This app is a real time saver, plus it's easy to download!
GREAT App about 1 year ago by Anguel Iordanov https://www.parrotessentials.co.uk
Great App. It works really well. Fast to install and it does save a lot of time if you wish to reduce the price of a few products at the same time. You can change prices but value or %. The technical support is also great. I am using some of the other Apps like In Stock Reminder, by the same company and could not be happier. Would highly recommend this app.
Simple and Effective about 1 year ago by nat...com https://simple-shot.com
This app installed in no time and is up and running in less than 5 minutes. This will save us a lot of time this Black Friday! Exactly what we were looking for. The only thing I'd love to see is if the app could put a SALE icon on any items on sale. That would be so perfect. :)
Quick Setup and Flexible about 1 year ago by tec...com http://www.krazynetz.com
App is really easy to get started. I really like the flexibility to choose individual products or products by category. My only reason for not giving 5 stars - When products are chosen, the price displayed as the "example" shows the current price. Just as another reviewer mentioned, the Retail Price / Price / Sale Price setup inside each product really comes into play here.
Easy Setup and Installation about 1 year ago by car...com http://www.timberline.store
The app installed without any problems. The setup was very easy as well. I was able to figure out how start scheduling sales and promotions very quickly.
Useful for holiday sales about 1 year ago by mar...com
This app is a real time-saver for holiday sales, but keep in mind that you have to be really specific with time zones in settings (change your time zone if you are affected by daylight savings!) and that it's very picky about pricing; if you sell something under retail cost, you either have to remove the retail price or use the sale box instead. Philip was very helpful and quick with responses when I had problems. There are learning curves with everything, though, and if you can get it working, this is a very useful, time-saving addition to any e-commerce store.

This App is really useful. It is a must-have for eCommerce. With it you will no longer need to go through all your prices to change one after the other. I recommend this App to everyone.

Works great over 2 years ago by Murtaza

Great app. Does exactly what is says on the tin. No problems. Before using this app it would take a lot of time to setup sales on BC but this app has made it much easier and faster.

Everything seems to work well.  Easy to use and set up.

Crashes over 3 years ago by AJ Dallas http://www.poshsupplyco.com

Worthless! Great idea in theory but I just downloaded and installed it today but every time I attempted to create a discount it would say "internal error" or something about the API. I understand how to create an API for an app but this app does not detail whether or not its necessary or what to do if I were to create one. Definitely Not Worth the Effort!!!

Good App over 3 years ago by adm...com http://www.kechic.com

Works great for flash sales. However sometimes the sales don't start/stop on time despite the time zone being set correctly. But over all it is a good app for retail. $13 a month for it is a little pricey however given the basic functionality. Since the only other option is manually setting sales in BC or using coupon codes, I just pay the fee.

Very useful tool over 3 years ago by Steven T http://nextdoor-inc.mybigcommerce.com/

I have used it for several stores and I liked it. This is a very powerful and convenient tool for discounting. Very easy to implement.

I like it. The app will be a good and easy way to manage my discounts. Thanks!

Great App and Great Customer Service over 3 years ago by Posh

I have to say this is a great idea. It allows you to schedule discounts and leave the work up to the app. Customer service is great, they really go out of their way to help and make sure you are satisfied. It is a great app and great staff. I did have an issue but they determined it was with my cookies. I like this app a lot, it helps free up a lot of my time. Thanks Philip!

Wasn't working the first install. Reinstalled it and it seemed to be functioning better...we'll see if it keeps working from here

2 stars, just for customer service over 3 years ago by dun...com

I tried it out, paid for one month to test it, and it didn't work. Emailed them with my concerns, they emailed me back quickly with a fix but it still isn't enough - it does not actually manage discounts in the way i want it to.

Hmmmm..... Was just OK while it was free! over 3 years ago by sal...com

When I installed this app it was free, it wasn't a free trial situation.  While using it I found it to be pretty buggy, so much so that in one day I lost over $300 as the discount manager had doubled the discount on some items making them practically free!!  Partially my fault, I had seen it do that a few times prior and I was in a rush and didn't double check.       They want $13 a month for this app, I personally would spend that money else where..    Any one for Ice-Cream??  

great discount app over 4 years ago by Akc...com

its a really an amazing app, we can easily manage discount for our products. 

Working very well it seems over 4 years ago by adm...com http://www.zenproaudio.com

I had tried this app very early on (over a year ago) and it was hit and miss. It now appears the bugs have been worked out, and its function is excellent. It works nicely to replace the BC stock system of running a sale, start to finish, by offering scheduling etc. It also changes the price in the actual price field so it's reflected on the product page, as well as any shopping feeds you have. At the end of your sale, it will return it to normal.There are a couple of things to beware, first of all be sure to set it up in depth in advance. You must choose which field your pricing will move to (retail price, store cost, etc) so be sure to use one that is not active on your site / product. Also, it does take a minute for changes to occur when scheduling or editing. I'm not saying these are flaws, but more like rules of engagement as it definitely works.This app saved me a lot of work for Black Friday 2015, and I plan on continuing to use it as it makes putting things on sale easy, and I don't have to remember to change them back later.
