Non-Shopify Plus customers and/or Plus customers without Shopify scripts, will need to build out automatic discounts to make this work. This document will outline the steps to create an automatic product discount to power the Buy More Save More feature.

Shopify Plus is required to make use of Shopify Scripts but is not required to utilize the Buy More Save More feature. As of February 13, 2023 Shopify announced that Shopify Scripts will be deprecated on August 28, 2025 and they will be moving to functions. They have since removed the Script Editor application from the Shopify app store.


Getting Started

Before you start setting up your discounts, you will need to configure the buy more save more feature in the Rebuy admin portal.


Auto Discounting Caveats

To set up auto discounting for Buy More Save More, you can use the Shopify amount off products discounting function within the Shopify administrative portal. In this feature you can specific specific products or collections that you would want to apply to your Buy More Save More offer.

IF YOU USE THIS WORKAROUND IT COULD IMPACT OTHER DISCOUNTING YOU HAVE SET UP. FOR EXAMPLE IF YOU HAVE A DISCOUNT CODE THAT IS FOR 20% OFF YOUR ENTIRE ORDER AND YOU HAVE A BUY MORE SAVE MORE AUTO-DISCOUNT SET UP FOR 15% OFF ONE PRODUCT THEN IT WILL REMOVE THE DISCOUNTING FOR THE BUY MORE SAVE MORE OFFER AND WILL ONLY APPLY THE 20% DISCOUNT.

CURRENTLY, SHOPIFY'S AUTOMATIC DISCOUNTS ONLY WORK ON ONE-TIME PURCHASE VERSIONS OF PRODUCTS.

UTILIZING THE AUTO-DISCOUNT FUNCTIONALITY RESULTS IN DISCOUNTS BEING APPLIED INDIVIDUALLY TO EACH PRODUCT SPECIFIED IN YOUR AUTOMATIC DISCOUNT. THIS MEANS THAT IF A PRODUCT FALLS UNDER DISTINCT LINE ITEMS, THE TOTAL QUANTITY OF THAT SPECIFIC PRODUCT WILL BE AGGREGATED TO INITIATE THE DISCOUNT OFFER. FOR INSTANCE, THE PURCHASE OF ONE SHIRTS AND ONE HAT WOULD ACTIVATE A BUY 2 GET X DISCOUNT.


Discount Configurations

Tier 1 Discount Configuration

After configuring your Rebuy Buy More Save More settings in the Rebuy admin portal, you can proceed to the Shopify admin portal to create the automatic discounts. Upon logging into the Shopify portal, you should access the discount section, choose to create a discount, and opt for the amount off products discount type.


At this point, you can select the automatic discount method and assign a memorable title to the discount code that will be associated with your buy more save more offer.

In this example, we will be setting our first tier to Buy 2 save 10%.


Afterward, you will proceed to define the percentage or fixed fee for the items you wish to incorporate into your "buy more, save more" campaign and then choose the specific product(s) or collection(s) you want to include.

Make sure you set up your percentage or fixed fee off of items to fit your specific buy more save more configuration. In this example, we will be setting our first tier to Buy 2 save 10% on specific collection of tea.


Next, you will need to establish the criteria regarding the quantity of items required in a customer's cart for the discount to be applicable.

Make sure you set up the quantity of items to fit your specific buy more save more configuration. In this example, we will be setting our first tier to Buy 2 save 10% a specific collection of tea so the quantity will be set to 2.



Subsequently, you will configure the combination settings for your Buy More Save More offer to determine which other discounts it can be combined with. In the case of items being eligible for multiple discounts, only the largest discount will be applied. Therefore, if you reach subsequent tiers, the discount associated with the prior tier will be forfeited and replaced by the superior discount offered in the next tier.

Furthermore, you have the option to enable shipping discounts and specify the active dates for your offer. However, for the purpose of this example, we will assume that these features are not being enabled.

Your first tier auto-discounting is all set and now it is time to move onto the second tier configuration.


Tier 2 Discount Configuration

To set up the second tier, you will essentially repeat the same steps as you did for the first tier, but this time you will modify the percentage discounts and quantities according to the configuration you have set in the Buy More Save More tool in Rebuy.

Upon logging into the Shopify portal, you should access the discount section, choose to create a discount, and opt for the amount off products discount type.


At this point, you can select the automatic discount method and assign a memorable title to the discount code that will be associated with your buy more save more offer.

In this example, we will be setting our second tier to Buy 3 save 15%.


Afterward, you will proceed to define the percentage or fixed fee for the items you wish to incorporate into your "buy more, save more" campaign and then choose the specific product(s) or collection(s) you want to include.

Make sure you set up your percentage or fixed fee off of items to fit your specific buy more save more configuration. In this example, we will be setting our second tier to Buy 3 save 15% off a specific collection of tea.


Next, you will need to establish the criteria regarding the quantity of items required in a customer's cart for the discount to be applicable.

Make sure you set up the quantity of items to fit your specific buy more save more configuration. In this example, we will be setting our second tier to Buy 3 save 15% from a specific collection of tea so the quantity will be set to 3.


Subsequently, you will configure the combination settings for your Buy More Save More offer to determine which other discounts it can be combined with. In the case of items being eligible for multiple discounts, only the largest discount will be applied. Therefore, if you reach subsequent tiers, the discount associated with the prior tier will be forfeited and replaced by the superior discount offered in the next tier.

Furthermore, you have the option to enable shipping discounts and specify the active dates for your offer. However, for the purpose of this example, we will assume that these features are not being enabled.

Your auto-discounting for the second tier is now complete, and you can proceed to configure the next tier if you have one configured within Rebuy.

You can follow the same steps as before, making the necessary adjustments in your configurations to align with the specific offer you are providing.
