How to offer Discounts with E-junkie Buy Now buttons

Buy Now buttons can only apply product-specific Discount Codes which the buyer would enter manually to markdown the per-unit price of a specific product. Since Buy Now buttons bypass our cart and take buyers directly to an instant checkout, it will be necessary to use a version of the Buy Now button code that provides buyers with a text-entry field where they can enter a Discount Code on your page before they click the Buy Now button.

Accepting Discount Codes with Buy Now buttons:

  1. On the Get Button Codes screen, click the tab for Buy Now buttons;
  2. Select which payment processor will be used for checkout with this Buy Now button (NOTE: discounts will not work with ClickBank at all);
  3. Tick the checkbox Let buyers enter discount code;
  4. Copy the button codes provided;
  5. Paste the codes into your page where you want the button to appear with a text box for discount codes;
  6. Buyers will be able to enter their discount code in the text box before clicking the Buy Now button to make their purchase;
  7. See below for details about discount settings that cannot be used with Buy Now buttons.

Discount limitations for Buy Now buttons:

Buy Now buttons can only use Discount Codes that alter the Item Unit Price by a Flat Amount with an optional Expiration Date but no other conditions -- i.e., Buy Now buttons cannot use discounts which:

  • Apply to Cart Item Total or Shipping & Handling;
  • Have no Discount Code for the buyer to enter manually;
  • Reduce the item price to 0.00 (free);
  • Apply a %-based discount (instead, you can make it a Flat Amount equal to the desired % of the item's original price);
  • Have qualifying conditions such as:
    • Max. Use Count;
    • Min. Item Total;
    • Min. Item Quantity.
