The GovX ID app for Shopify makes it easy for any store owner to deploy a military or first responder discount in minutes... no coding required. You can find the app here in the Shopify App Store.
Step 1 - Download the app
Log into your Shopify store and click on the Apps menu. Then click the button to visit the Shopify App Store or click directly on the link above to access the GovX ID Military Discount app. After you walk through the install process, the app will show up in the app menu for your store as shown below.
Step 2 - Configure your settings
After downloading the app, you'll need to configure your settings. This will only take a minute and allows you to control the offer, branding and messaging of your military discount program. You can control the following settings.
This lets you control who you want to target with your discount offer. You can select:
You can upload a logo that we'll display in the verification flow. This keeps your brand front-and-center throughout the process.
Your welcome message will be shown on the first verification screen. You can use this text to reiterate your offer (ex: Acme Widget Company thanks you for your service with our military discount). There is a 250 character limit.
Once a customer has been verified, we will issue them a unique coupon code. You can control the coupon settings as follows:
You can update these settings at any time. Changes will be reflected immediately.
Step 3 - Deploy the app in your store
Once you've configured your settings, it's time to deploy the offer in your store template. We've made this super easy, but we also give you a ton of flexibility... the best of all worlds. Deployment options include the following:
GovX ID button in your cart
We recommend placing the GovX ID button at the bottom of your cart to ensure the military discount offer is visible to customers on your site. Our button is compatible with all cart types, including pages, drawers and pop-ups across all public Shopify themes. And we've made the install process as easy as the click of a button.
Create a page
A great way to promote your Military and First Responder discount is to build a custom page on your store that highlights the offer. This gives you a single page to which you can send marketing and it gives you a way to capitalize on SEO traffic.
We realize that you know your store much better than us and sometimes you may want to build a more custom implementation. For anyone comfortable with HTML, GovX ID is extremely easy-to-use and flexible.
