# Discount

Discounts are a very useful tool in your DG1 online shop that helps you attract new customers and retain your regulars. To create a discount, navigate to SHOP -> PROMOTIONS in your DG1 Admin panel and select Discounts. Once you create a discount, it will stay in your discounts archive. Even if a discount is no longer active or disabled, you can still edit and activate it again.
