    Default Discount for new customers

    Does anyone run a % discount for new customers? How does it work and is it popular? Can't decide if it is worth doing?

    I use multibuy discounts on site, but prefer to keep discount specials for existing customers, especially if they preorder, to reward them for loyalty.
    Regards

    I used to do it for opening new 'Account', but some people only used to do it as they were checking out, and missed the email with the discount code, had one woman use our inquiry form asking if there was discount codes as she was going to order one mount, I replied sorry there was none, (forgot about the new account discount) anyway she did order and open an account, but, she messed up her email, so all emails bonced back, including the one with the discount code
    Now we only have discount for quanity and special customer groups for repeat orders more than 5

    First make a Discount , I called Discount Group 10%, (they get 10% if they spend 20 +) then creat a User Group called Discount 10% and asign the discount to it, now in any customer record (you like to have the discount) you asign the User Group, hope that make sense

    Yes, that makes sense thank you. So a bit of a manual work around really.

    We had a 10% discount for newsletter subscribers, which is used 1-2 times a day.
