Sales are a fundamental part of working in eCommerce. Many stores have them throughout the year. Either they’re global across a store, or they have sales on certain collections/products throughout the year, with the products changing regularly.
There are many advantages of a sale on the store. The first being that it is a good way to get rid of stock that isn’t/won’t sell well. Many fashion-based stores will have end of season sales. Or, if you’re a technology-based store, you might have a sale on a certain model if a new model is being brought out and the old one isn’t as valuable as more and you would rather get rid of it before the new one comes in.
Whatever the reason for a sale, promoting your sale is going to bring in more traffic and generate more sales. By using compare at price features you can showcase how much customers can save on sale items. However, when you have a large store, customers need to see the products that are on sale.
You can promote them, but this is no guarantee. So instead, you can help them find sale items by having a collection that contains all the products that are currently on sale. To do this, follow these steps.

Now you need to select the conditions for your new collection. For sales, you need to choose the ‘All Conditions’.
