How To Prepare For A Flash Sale


This guide is applicable to those using either the Legacy version or the New version of Intuitive Shipping.

Having a Flash Sale is a great way to increase customer traffic and boost sales. Before you kick off your sale, it’s important to make sure that you’re prepared. Shopify recommends that you make special preparations if you expect ‘over ten times your usual daily sales within two hours or less.’

Shopify’s third-party App developers, including Intuitive Shipping, are limited by the number of API requests that can be submitted. That means, if you get an unusually high number of checkouts at the same time, it could cause Intuitive Shipping to stop returning shipping rates.

Get Prepared

  • If you’re a Shopify Plus merchant, set up Private App credentials, then notify your Merchant Success Manager and ask to have the API request limit temporarily increased.

Following these important steps will help ensure that your customers have a smooth checkout and that your sale is a successful one!
