Quantity discounts are unique for each product and are used to give discounts to customers that purchase certain amounts of the product. Unlike discounts set up in the Discount Manager, quantity discounts can be applied in addition to other discounts on the product.
When you click on the Quantity Discounts Tab, you will see a form for adding a new discount and then the list of current discounts assigned to this product. To add a new quantity discount, enter the following:
Type – The discount can be either for retail customers or wholesale customers. You can set up different ranges for your retail and wholesale customers. If you want a specific discount to appear for both types of customers, be sure to add it for both.
Quantity Range – Enter the range for the discount. Enter a 0 for the end of the range to use unlimited quantity. Only one discount for a product should have this setting. If you enter any overlapping ranges, or other invalid settings, the store will display an error message until the problem is corrected.
Discount – The amount of the discount, in the currency used for the store.
Click Add Discount after entering your settings to add the discount range to the list. Links for Edit and Delete are also available to make changes to the discount levels.
