NEW! Customers can use a discount code on top of offers (enable in Settings)


A single app for Multiple Promos / Offer types:



Discount / Sale


Put products or collections on sale. Overlapping sales do not discount the same product twice.


Examples:

  • 30% Off Spring Collection!

  • Products tagged with "sale" are at $8.99 (use an automatic collection)

  • ShoeClub members (tagged signed-in customers) get 10% Off all shoes


Set discounts as fixed prices, or % Off from original price.















Volume Discounts / Quantity Breaks


Buy more to Save more! Create different price tiers for products based on the quantity a customer buys. Choose
between



  • per product variant

  • per product (all variants in cart will be grouped by product and summed up)

  • per entire selection of products and collections


Set discounts as fixed prices, or % Off from original price.














Spend Amount, Get Discount


Spend $ on chosen products or collections, Get a discount as % Off or fixed $ amount for all


Examples:

  • Spend $100 on Tees, Get 10% off (from Tees only, not entire cart)

  • Buy $50 worth of Accessories, Get a 20% discount

  • Get $35 Off when you spend $300 on Shirts














Buy X For $


Choose a % Off or fixed price for a quantity of products.


Examples:

  • Buy 3 shirts for $299

  • Buy any 5 accessories and get 20% Off

  • Buy 2 pairs for $29














Buy X Get Y


Examples

  • Buy one, get one at 50% (BOGO)

  • Buy two, get one free

  • Buy a pair of shoes, get 30% Off from any bag!

  • Buy a womens top, and get one for him too, at 20% Off

  • Half-priced beanies for every Tank or Tee!


The discounted item is the cheapest from the a group of products part of the offer. If there are multiple
groups of products, we group similarly priced items together.


Multiple simultaneous offers work fine, even for same collections.














Bundle


Purchase complementary products at a discounted Bundle price.


Examples:

  • $888 Outfit: Suit, Shirt & Tie

  • Shorts & Running shoes at $149

  • 4 Essential Oils and Diffuser at $99














Credit


Credit offers work best on POS, in brick and mortar stores. These give a Credit for customers returning an
item. Credit is not stored on customer account, it can only be applied on current cart.


Examples


  • Return an empty bottle, get $1 off your next order
    (define a free Empty Bottle product in your admin, and add it to cart)

  • Use a printed coupon to get $10 off
    (define a free $10 Coupon product in your admin, and add it to cart)














Free Gift


Motivate customers to spend more by offering gifts for various cart amount thresholds. Works great with Shopify
Gift cards too


Examples


  • Spend $50 and receive a suprise gift!

  • Get a $25 Gift Card for free on orders over $100!

  • Get a free Organic soap for every $30 spent


Choose if multiple gifts should be applied, or just a single one.














Upsell / Cross-sell


One of the most effective way to increase your revenue is to sell more to existing customers. It costs much
less than brining new customers onboard.



Upsell / Cross-sell allows you do easily to that, driving your average order value up. Examples:



  • When customers add a pair of Shoes to cart, ask them to add a Shoe Cleaning Kit or a pair of Socks too

  • When customers add a Shirt to cart, ask them to add a Tie too

  • When customers add a pair of Pants in their cart, prompt them to also add Belts



Full customization available, even embedding offers in cart intead of popups.














Schedule sales to start or end automatically


Choose exact date & time for each offer to begin, or end.

Exclude or Include specific customers using customer tags



  • Example: Offers valid only for signed in customers with a free account

  • Example: Members-only offers (
    See also Membership app)

  • Example: Wholesale pricing with Volume Discounts, or Discount / Sale offers, applicable only to customers
    tagged "wholesale" (
    See also Wholesale app)

  • Example: Exclude wholesale customers from other promos (e.g. Buy X Get Y)

Limit offers only to visitors with a special link


For example, share that link to your mailing list, in a Facebook ad, or on a guest blog post.

First class mobile support


More than 50% of customers shop from smartphones and tablets. We designed the purchase experience with smartphones
as a primary target.









FAQ


What are known limitations?



Offers work only in full cart page. Go to Themes > Customize Theme and set cart type to Page (or ask your theme developer
how to disable the popup cart).



Offers work only in the online store. Other channels (Buy button, Facebook...) can't show discounts or purchase at discounted
prices. POS works usually, but we can't support it, due to many POS limitations and lack of reliability.



Orders which include a recurring subscription product can't be discounted.



Shipping discounts do not work with orders having special offer discounts. Shopify discount codes on prices do work (enable
in app Settings).



Do you duplicate variants or products?



NO, that would create inventory and other issues. We do NOT duplicate variants. Zero issues with Inventory and Channels.



Are there incompatible apps?



Yes, some apps take control over Checkout and discounts won't apply:



  • Upsell apps (e.g. Product Upsell, OneClick Upsell, CartHook Checkout). Ultimate Special Offers has Upsells
    built-in, if needed.

  • Consistent Cart, CartHook

  • The Motivator


Can I set specific start/end times for an offer? How about being applicable only to some customers?



Yes! In the offer details, please see
Applicability section.



I have a currency converter and prices show in original currency



Some currency formatters don't handle dynamic prices well.
Auto Currency Switcher app always works.



Can I offer shipping discounts?



No, sorry, only price discounts on products are possible.

The support team is amazing. I needed some customization for this to work how I needed it in my store and support went above and beyond to get it working for me. The app is easy to use and works well. I definitely recommend it!

We found it incredibly easy to set up our discount offer. The support team has been fantastic (helpful, friendly and fast) when it comes to answering questions.

Very good app, very customisable and exactly what we need! Support team was brilliant too, had some trouble setting up on a certain theme and they fixed it up without a problem. Would definitely recommend.

just got the app but support is great so far

posted

I love that you can do tiered discounts and it is pretty self explanatory. My only wish is that support was more available for those on the West Coast. I did receive support on the weekends which was very helpful!

I use an app to monitor customer visits, and noticed a 'bug' at checkout where the dropdown appears underneath the overlay. This could have an obvious impact on seller CVRs, so I brought it to the dev team's attention.

I was dismissed, repeatedly, and told "sorry, we can't fix it" (...literally). The team clearly has no regard for customer service OR making a functional app for their users. They couldn't have cared less.

Disappointed, I'll say "you're welcome" and move to another, more reliable service with better support.

[UPDATE Nov 17, 2017: I STILL THINK USO is the most important merchandising tool in my store. Even after a re-theme (now on Turbo).]

My store migrated Shopify in January 2016 -- and I was immediately frustrated with merchandising options, lack of BOGO, and upsells were just not intuitive. Is there an app for that?

I first started using Bold Upsell since (at the time) it was the only game in town, but for months I was desperately looking for a better solution. In my opinion, Bold Upsell is a 1-star app due to all kinds of customer facing UX issues and terrible, terrible support. Bold also believes presenting a customer with 3 upsell options is a good choice (no! every expert says one upsell, period!). Bold Upsell does not redirect to cart after accepting an upsell offer (customer stays on the page - totally bad UX). They offered custom development to solve this for about US$5,000. Pass.

I was also wanting to offer quantity breaks, and the only game in town was also from Bold:
https://apps.shopify.com/quantity-breaks
And I gave this app a 2-star review
Bold QB used hidden-products/hidden variants to solve this. It was a disaster. Read my review... posted on Jun 13, 2016

Simultaneously, I was trying to find a BOGO (buy X get y at discount)
and the only option at the time was Buy X Get One by Supple
https://apps.shopify.com/buy-x-get-one
And although I was uncomfortable with the limitations, at the time, the only way to do BOGO was using BuyX... but BuyX had a laundry list of incompatibilities, and in my opinion, I had to find a better way to do BOGO. Hidden products/variants didn't feed Facebook feed and it didn't play nice with OneClickUpsell and other integrated apps. But it NAILED the logic rules for BOGO, the customer facing UX was perfect, and the developer kept making it better...

In January 2017, the developer of this app (Ultimate Special Offers - USO) told me he had been working on a better mousetrap for about a year...

tl;dr There is no finer app at this time for discounts, upsells, BOGO, quantity breaks, and other special offers.

Marius is a pleasure to work with, and although I have probably been a total PITA during onboarding, this app is "Best-in-class" for merchandising for Shopify at the time of this writing. Email communication has been exceptional.

We are using USO for:

1. BOGO (such as buy any lipstick and get another, in any color, for 50% off)... WITHOUT USING HIDDEN VARIANTS and now, NO DRAFT ORDERS!!!!!!!

2. Auto add-to-cart of free item -- we use JustUno for popups and an effective marketing campaign offers the visitor a success page if she subscribes... and the "prize" is a link that automatically adds a free item to the cart. USO handles this perfectly.

3. UPSELL -- a well thought out and well-designed UX for the "would you like fries with that?" scenario -- this is UNLIKE other so-called upsell apps that analyze and make an offer in the cart -- well, you can... but... the magic here is product specific upsell offer -- a makeup brush that perfectly pairs with a powder, etc... These upsells convert.

4. Quantity Breaks. Without hidden variants!!

...among other things

This app is deep, and now (28-MAY-2017) that "draft orders" are a thing of the past, there is nothing else out there in Shopify app-land that comes close.

DO NOT be confused that this app has a variety of offers-- that's the whole point.

And now, with the addition of stacked special-offers + coupon code discounts, and also passing a discount code from URL parameter also shares with USO, this is The Most Powerful discount app available.

There are few things that I would like to see to make it "more perfect" - including hooks to a recurring payments app, such as ReCharge -- but with the recent API announcements from Shopify, this may not be needed soon...

The BIG TAKEAWAY here is Supple has engineered a way to offer BOGO and Quantity Breaks without hidden products/variants and without using draft orders. And the upsell UX is the best in class.

Worked fine for a while but whatever update they made completely messed up our checkout. Customers were running into checkout issue with special promotions in their cart. Contacted support multiple times and they played the blame game on Shopify. Disabled to app and our checkout is working fine again. Proceed with caution with this app. Has some really great features, but that means nothing if a customer can't checkout!

The code messed up with the whole store

This is a great app with lots of options, and the support team is quick and helpful.
