How to create a link to the checkout with a discount code applied in the Shopify store?

There are many ways to encourage customers to buy in our Shopify store. One of them is to make the shopping experience as simple as possible. Therefore, we can redirect the customer directly to the checkout with the discount code applied.

Firstly add the Buy button to your Sales Channels if you haven't already done so. You will find all the necessary information in the article on Adding the Buy Button sales channel. Now you can easily create a Shopify checkout link. Open the product's edit page to which you want to create a link. Now click More actions and select Create checkout link from the dropped-down menu.

Copy the created link to the clipboard. Have a look at the article on the checkout link if you want to link several products or different variants.

The next step is switching out to the Personal Discount app. You can add new automation or edit the existing one. Scroll down to the Redirect section. At this point, we need to modify our Shopify checkout link a bit. Personal Discount redirect creates a link that looks like this:

And this is how you should fill out the Redirect section in the Personal Discount automation settings:

Select the option that you want to redirect to another page within your store and paste the proper part of the URL.

As a result, customers will be redirected to the checkout with the discount code applied.
