How to show bundle discount information in the shopping cart

Shopify discounts are only  applied during the checkout process. For that reason, Shopify does not show the discount information or the discounted total amount on the shopping cart page. This is a known limitation of the Shopify Discount system.

To overcome it, we can suggest two different actions.

Display a message on the shopping cart page

First, you can display a message on the shopping cart page to warn your customers that the discount will be applied at checkout.
If you have configured global discounts, you can configure the message in the Discounts section or in the Visual preferences section:

If you have configured some individual bundles discounts, you can configure the message in the  Manual bundles section.

Also, you can use different placeholders to add dynamic content to this message. For example, for a "Percentage" discount, if you configure this message:

The message on the shopping cart page will look like the following:

For example, for a "Cheapest item for free" discount, if you configure this message:

The message on the shopping cart page will look like the following:

The position and styling of the message can be easily tuned in the Visual preferences section. Additionally, when the discount message is displayed, the CSS class cbb-fbt-discount-applied will be added to the page, what can be used to further customise the styles of the shopping cart.

Skip the cart page

Second, you can easily skip the cart page and  redirect directly to the checkout page with the following option within the Advanced preferences section:

We recommend using both options described to maximize your customers' awareness of the discount feature.
