Add a Discount Code for Artwork Purchases

Offer Collectors a Discount with a Special Code

Offer a code to customers for a discount - whether for being a subscriber, for hard times or a Summer Sale to boost your marketing.

IMPORTANT: Discount codes ONLY work for the built-in FASO Shopping Cart and our "Add to Cart" buttons.
If you use custom PayPal buttons such as for selling Prints, the Discount Code will not apply.

Discount Codes need to be at least 2 characters long. 

You Have 2 Options

To set up a discount code:

  • Login to FASO Control Panel
  • Click Commerce icon (upper right)
  • Click Discount Codes (blue link, upper left)

  • Click Add New (blue button)

  • Click on your choice for Percentage or Fixed/set amount


A percentage is taken off the sale.

If you choose Add Percentage Discount Code, you'll get a screen like this:

  • For Discount Code, enter a name (it won't be cAse-sEnstiVe for your buyers)

Red Alert

Only use letters and/or numbers; no symbols, no empty spaces. Otherwise, it will fail.

  • Select the % amount from the drop-down
  • Make sure Yes is checked for Enabled
  • Click Add & Save Now (blue button)

Fixed Amount

A fixed $ amount is deducted from the entire order, not per item.

If you set the Fixed Amount discount to $50, the buyer gets $50 off the entire order no matter how many items they purchase..

If you choose Add Fixed Amount Discount Code, you'll get a screen like this:

  • Fill in what you want to call it, to the right of Discount Code
    (Again, no symbols or spaces, but capitalization doesn't matter)
  • Make sure the Type is correct (no? See blue box below)
  • Set a $ amount for the Fixed Amount
  • Be sure it's Enabled
  • Click Save Changes (button above or below)

View your List of Discounts

You should now see all the saved discounts you've added:

NOTE: You can offer different discount types.

What your Customer Sees

When one buys an artwork from your site, they click the Discount Code link in the cart:

Then they'll get a screen to enter whichever code you gave them:

They click Submit and get to this success message & click to return to the shopping cart:

The rest is automatic. In this example, the price dropped from $7700 to $7650:

PayPal Shopping Cart

They may get 1 more screen to enter their email address, and lastly the PayPal shopping cart like this sample:

How to Promote It

Two good options for letting collectors know about the discount would be by Email Newsletter and/or an Announcement Bar.

Discount codes are global ~ they apply to all your art. If you want to place a discount on 1 specific artwork, see Discount Code - Options, Workarounds.
