Creating a New Sale

To get started, click on the "CREATE A NEW PROMOTION OR SALE" button.

Creating a Basic Sale

The most common sale created is a basic sale, which will discount your items by a specific percent. For example, you can set up a Basic Sale on a specific category to offer 15% off all listings in that category for one week.

To create a basic sale, ie: your items will be displayed as a certain percent off their original price, just select "Percentage Discount" and "All Matching Item(s)" for the Promotion Type, and enter in your "Reduction" percent. Leave the "Rules" section blank (and don't enter a Coupon / Promo Code), and optionally select which items your basic sale will apply to.

Advanced Promotions

The "Create a New Promotion/Sale" page offers many different advanced options for creating sales. You can use the other available options to create a wide range of promotions, from "Spend $100, Receive $25 Off" to "Buy 3 Get 1 Free" in a specific category. The possibilities are endless! If you add an optional Coupon / Promo Code, you'll need to provide it to your customers. Otherwise, your best (codeless) Promotion will automatically be applied at checkout.
