Shopify does not allow multiple discounts at checkout by default, which is why store owners have to opt for either third party apps or induct other methods.
Official Shopify documentation states that they do not allow discounts stack, however one discount code per order.
“At this time, Shopify doesn’t currently offer “stackable” discounts ; only one discount code can be used per order. That said, I know this is a wanted feature by many and something I’d love to see added to the platform. For this, I’ve gone ahead and added your vote to the existing feature request to show our teams there is further interest in implementing this in a future update.” Trevor, Shopify Community Moderator

Solutions for Shopify multiple discount codes at checkout
Although you will find many hacks around setting multiple discount codes on a single order, but by far the most easy, to-the-point and the one which makes sense is the third party app.
1-Use third party apps
Volume and discounted pricing – we recommend
It is one of the best app for generating multiple discount codes at checkout. As you can see, they offer quantity breaks, volume discounts, tiered pricing and bulk discount.
They have got a good rating on Shopify app store i.e. 4.9.
Furthermore, the app offers 7 days free trial which means if you don’t like using it, you can quit. The pricing plan of the app starts from $7.99/ month.
The discount app works with ‘all types of discount offers’.
Let us list down.
-Spend amount, get discount (Spend $400 on summer collection – get 20% off)
-Volume discount / quantity breaks
-Buy X for CA $ (Buy 3 items from summer collection of $400)
The app is useful in giving ‘volume discounts’ and ‘discount codes’.

2-Combine discount code with gift card
You can combine one discount code with a gift card in a single order. Many of the Shopify store owners may not be aware of this very fact.
However, you can only use a gift card if there is some value left and only one customer can use it. In short, you have to generate unique gift cards for each customer. Painstaking right?
Although we shared two different methods for resolving Shopify multiple discount codes at checkout, we recommend a hassle-free (though expensive in comparison to gift cards) third party app ‘Volume and discounted pricing’. You have to bear monthly app expenses.
