In this step-by-step guide, we show you how to automate Daily Deals for your eCommerce by adding a rule with Planet and a featured section in your Shopify store.
Configuration in Planet
To create your Daily Deals you must add a new discount rule, and configure it by following the steps below:
Select your products
Start your rule by selecting the products to add to your Daily Deals, you can select them manually or select the products using the advanced filters (stock, price, tags, collections, etc.).
Set up the actions
Choose the discount that your selected products will have. In this particular use case, we recommend a minimum discount of 30%.
Remember that the discounts available in this case are percentage discounts as well as fixed amount discounts.
Add a tag to group your products and include them in the featured section of your eCommerce.
Schedule the duration of the discount
As this is a Daily Deals discount, the recommended duration is 24 hours, as shown below:
If we want this discount to be applied periodically, we can add more schedules, for example every Monday of the month.
Configuration in Shopify
To have Daily Deals displayed in a featured section of your eCommerce, you need:
Create a new collection
In the "products" section of the dashboard, you can access to the collections page.
In the collections page, we create a new "automated" collection in which the products included as a condition that the tag is the same as the tag previously added in Planet, in this case "daily-deals".
2. Add a featured section
After creating this new collection, we will go to the "Online Store" page of the main menu. And we will customize the theme of our eCommerce, adding a featured section with the collection created in the previous step.
Now, you will be able to create several consecutive rules in Planet to display a featured section on your website. This section will be automatically updated with your Daily Deals to make sure your customers don't miss your special promotions.
