There are multiple ways to exclude products from discounts in Shopify. The main filter options you have with discounts are the following:
- All Products
- Specific Collections
- Specific Products
By using these options we can exclude products. The Specific Collections filter is very useful. That’s because collections are very powerful.
Excluding Using Collections
If you know the title of the product or products to exclude, you can create a collection that includes all your products except those contain a certain word in their title.
Go to Products > Collections in your Shopify admin and create this Automated Collection:
The collection will take a few minutes to update. After it’s complete, you’ll see all the products in-store except the ones you excluded.
Using the “is not equal to” or “does not contain” is a good way to create collections that exclude certain products.
Other than Product Title, you can use other conditions to exclude products:
- Product Type
- Product Vendor
- Product Price
- Product Tag
- Compare at price
- Inventory Stock
- Variant’s Title
Now it’s simple to use this newly created collection in discounts.
Discounts For Only Specific Collections
Go to your discount code or automated discount where you want to exclude products.
Make sure that this discount code or automated discount only applies to specific collections and select the collection you just created.
Save this discount and you’re done! Here’s how it would look like in checkout:
Notice the discount doesn’t apply to the excluded product title!
