You can offer several different types of promotion for your Yumbles shop.
1. Price discounts
To discount some or all of your products edit your listings so that the Price field shows the discounted price, and the List Price remains your RRP.
The difference between the two fields will automatically calculate the % discount and show a discount flag on your listings for customers to see (as per the above image).
As with whenever you edit your listings, we will see the price discount you have made and automatically consider featuring your promotion in our marketing. However you can also alert us to the promotion by contacting us.
2. Free shipping
To offer free shipping on specific products simply edit the product listing(s) selecting "Free Shipping" on the "Shipping Properties" page.
You will also just need to select which shipping method the free shipping relates to so that customers can understand the delivery timescales and can still choose to upgrade shipping if needed.
TIP: if you wish to offer free shipping across your full range contact Seller Support to update your shipping options too.
3. Conditional basket promotions
For any promotions that are conditional to what is ordered (i.e. number of items, order value etc) contact Seller Support with the details of the promotion you would like to run including the start and end date and we will set it up for you.
This can include promotions such as:
- a % discount if you spend / buy a certain amount
- a free product if you spend/ buy a certain amount
- free shipping if you spend/ buy a certain amount
Once set-up these conditional promotions are then displayed to customers on the site as follows:
- on all of your product listings
- in the basket view and again at checkout
4. Voucher (promotion) codes
If you would like to have an exclusive promotion code for your shop to offer audiences outside of Yumbles, e.g. to include on event flyers, simply contact Seller Support with the details of the promotion you would like to offer including the start and end date and we will set it up for you.
Promoting your promotion
Once in place you can share you promotion with your customer databases, across your social media channels or even to your Yumbles buyers by including it with the packing slip in orders.
Always direct buyers to your Yumbles shop (seller) page as the best way to see all of your products and benefit from the promotion.
How will Yumbles promote my promotion?
We will automatically consider advertising your promotion across our various onsite and offsite marketing channels. Obviously the more compelling the promotion the more likely (and the more extensively) we will advertise it.
