Discount offers limitations on Shopify

The Discount functionality in the Checkout extension and Upsell widget is implemented through the Shopify Function API. Shopify imposes the following limitations:

Discount quantity limit: A third-party app can create up to 5 discounts, and all third-party apps combined can create a maximum of 25 discounts. If you encounter a prompt indicating that you have exceeded the discount quantity limit, please delete any excess discounts in either the Personalization admin or the Shopify admin’s discount section.

Discount combination: Most store discounts can be combined with product, order, and shipping discounts. However, some older stores may only allow stacking up to certain levels. When creating discounts, AfterShip Personalization follows the priority of discounts in this order: shipping > product > order to enable as many discounts to stack as possible.

Discounts are shared resources across different widgets on AfterShip Personalization. This means that if one widget modifies a discount offer that is referenced by another widget, the discount used by the other widget will also be modified.
