New Feature: Discount Codes

Jimdo now has discount codes.


Starting today, it's possible to create discount codes for your Jimdo store. Whether you use discount codes to offer a reward to your loyal customers or to entice new customers to your store, they can be a valuable marketing tool. We're extremely excited to make this feature public for all of our JimdoBusiness customers today. 


Simple. Powerful.

With the new discount code feature, it's easy to create discount codes that reduce the price of an order by a percentage or a set dollar amount. All you have to do is click the Store icon in the Site Admin, navigate to the Discount Codes tab, and enter the name and amount of the discount code. Your customers can enter your discount code during checkout to receive the discount. Learn more about how to use discount codes in our Help Center


Discount Codes are easy to create.

Attract new customers.

Encourage new customers to shop in your online store by offering discounts for special occasions. A well-timed sale gets potential customers excited and entices them to make a purchase. Having year-round discounts gives people the sense that your prices are simply too high, but occasional sales are a great marketing tool. If you have a jewelry store, for instance, consider having sales near Mother's Day or Valentine's Day—the potential increase in sales will make up for the decrease in your prices. 

Entering a discount code.
