Volume Discount is one of the most-used features of our Wholesale Pricing Discount app. It helps store owners offer their products on quantity breaks, tiered pricing, percentage off, price off, and fixed price to their b2b/wholesale customers.
Store owners who are using the Volume Discount feature can now set up volume discounts and tiered pricing on the following:
2. Products Collections
3. Product Variants
We believe that this updated feature will greatly enhance your experience with our application and make offering discounts easier than ever before.
Steps to set up Volume Discounts?
Here are the steps to create/set up volume discounts for your products, collections and variants
1. Specific products
Go to Volume Discounts from the dashboard.
You can see all your Discount Groups there, click on the discount group you want to set Volume discounts.
From the 'Edit volume discount' page, choose the discount type — fixed price, price-off or percentage off.
Select the Specific products on which you’d like to apply the Volume Discount and click on the Select products button to choose your products.
Add the discount tiers to each product.
Once done, click Save.
2. Specific collections
You need to select the collection that you want to give Volume Discounts.
A few notes:
a. Only one collection can be added at a time while creating the volume discount.
b. Volume discount will only apply to the products that belong to a main discount group.
c. The collection-based volume discount doesn't currently support Manual Orders.
3. Specific variants
Select the product variants that you would like to add to the Volume Discount tires.
How does the discount calculation work?
Let’s assume that you have set up discounts for products A, B & C as follows:
If a customer wants to buy product ‘A’ and is looking to get a 10% discount on the total order, he/she will have to purchase product ‘A’ of more than 5 and less than 10 quantities.
What are the edge cases/exceptions for the Volume Discount feature?
- The Volume Discount can be applicable standalone or on top of the main Discount Group/Individual Variant Pricing. A merchant can decide this from the Volume Discount settings.
- A product can have a maximum of five tiers of Volume Discounts.
- When applying Volume Discounts, if a product price becomes zero, a merchant can decide how to handle the zero price from the Volume Discount setting screen.
- You cannot edit or create Volume Discounts for ‘specific variants or ‘specific collection’ for the products that you want to offer volume discounts on if they are not added as a part of a Discount Group first. You can only set Volume Discount for any, if specific products/collections are common in the Discount Group.
- You cannot create Volume Discounts for Products and Collections combined. You will need to create separate Volume Discounts.
- Product variants should be created separately. You are only able to select the variants from the variant pickers.
- Product collection should be created separately. You only need to create one volume discount per collection.
- When a customer is tagged with multiple discount group tags having Volume Discount, then the Volume Discount from the Discount Group having the highest percentage would work.
- If multiple Discount Groups are assigned to a customer and the Discount Groups are based on selected products, selected collections, and the entire store; the Volume Discount is applied based on what discount group that product belongs to.
- If the content of a Discount Group is “Specific Products” or “Specific Collections”, then the Volume Discount is only applicable to products that exist within that Discount Group.
- If you select all products in the Discount group then automatically all the variants will come in Volume Discount as well.
If you want to set a volume discount on a ‘specific collection’ that has a few similar products from another collection and if you have set a Volume discount on this collection also, all these similar products will be displayed on the product page with the highest % of the discount applied.
For example: If product ‘A’ is listed in Collection ‘X’ (on 40% off) and Collection ‘Y’ (on 30% off) and you want to create a volume discount for Collection ‘Y’, it means that the highest i.e. 40% off of discount will be applied to the Product ‘A’.
