Create, Update, Delete A Discount Code

Shopify API 2024 – Create, Update, and Delete A Discount Code With Postman In Shopify

In a previous article, I showed you how to create a Price Rule with Postman, Price rule is a necessary condition to create a discount code. You can define the parameters for a discount with the Price Rule resource, but you’ll need to create associated discount codes for customers. I will show you how to create, update and delete a discount code with Postman In Shopify

Create A Discount Code Using Postman In Shopify

Step 1: Generate API credentials from the Shopify admin

     

      • Go to Apps – Manage private apps

    Generate API credentials from the Shopify admin

       

        • Click Create a new private app

        • In the App details section, enter a name for your app, and an emergency developer email

        • In the Admin API section, select the areas of your store that you want the app to access

      Generate API credentials from the Shopify admin

         

          • Click Save

        The Admin API section displays the app’s API key and password when you save the app’s details. 

        Step 2: Create a discount code using Postman in Shopify

        Before creating a discount code using Postman, you must create a Price Rule. Remember that Price Rule ID is to use in this step. 

           

            • Log in to your Postman and create a new workspace

            • Create a new POST with this URL:

          https://{username}:{password}@{shop}.myshopify.com/admin/api/{api-version}/{resource}.json

             

              1. {username} – The API key that you generated.

              1. {password} – The API password that you generated.

              1. {shop} – The name of your development store.

              1. {api-version} – The supported API version that you want to use.

              1. {resource} – A resource endpoint from the REST Admin API.

            Or you can copy this example in the Shopify Admin, remember to change {resource} to {price_rules/price rule ID/discount_codes}:
