Is there someplace I can read about what all of the fields in the "Quantity pricing" section of the manage -> products area are about?

We have a product that gets a price break at 4 pieces and then again at 9 pieces.

I believe this is the section that would control that, yes?

- Quantity Pricing
                 
QDGroup                
Threshold1                
Price1                
Threshold2                
Price2                
Threshold3                
Price3                
Threshold4                
Price4                
Threshold5                
Price5           

Thanks,
Andrea

Hi,
Enter the quantity at which the new price kicks in; in your case:

Threshold 1
Price     x
Threshold 4
Price     y
Threshold 9
Price     z


Hope this helps,

Thanks Graham -

Do you know what goes in the QDGroup field?

Is that a name for all of the like items that can combine in the cart for that discount?

Appreciate it,
Andrea

I don't know, to be honest, Andrea, ours is left blank. I can only assume it's a group name you give it for reference.

Hi Guys

The QDgroup field is used to group several products together for the same quantity discounts.

So for example, if you are selling five tshirts but they all you need the quantity discount to apply to all those tshirts (when customers mix and match) you would put all those tshirts in the same QDgroup.

Kind Regards

Hi Andrea
The QDGroup field is used if you want to offer a quantity discount when a range of goods are entered into the cart.
i.e. say your discount is for 12 or more this can be made up between several products as long as they all have the same QDGroup name entered in that field.

Cheers

Okay super guys - thank you.

I understand the QDgroup part perfectly.

One last question then ...

Is it possible to sell in groups of 4 & 9 - but not discount #5 or #10?

ie. a mixed group of 4 = each get a discount

But then 5-8 of the same item = full price until 9 pieces are in the cart?

This is how these things are sold locally at a market and I'm trying to recreate that.

The way I have set it up currently - anything past threshold 2 gets the discount price - until hitting threshold 3 when everything gets a further discount.

Thanks for your time,
Andrea

Hi Andrea,

Sorry for the late reply, so from what i've heard on the phone, you are selling 1 item at 3.50, 4 for 10 and 9 for 20, but 5 and 10 do not get a discount

So you would setup quantity discounts like this..

QDgroup = (whatever you wish)

Threshold1 = 4
Price = 2.50

Threshold2 = 5
Price = 3.50

Threshold3 = 9
Price = 2.22

There is an issue with Threshold 3 because 20 isn't divisible by 9, the closest I could get to 20 is 2.22 (2.22 x 9 = 19.98)

Hope this is suitable

Kind Regards

James

Hi James -

Appreciate the help.

Here are the cart updates I made:
http://screencast.com/t/bSQN5wFdH3kE

And here's how it's totaling in the cart:
http://screencast.com/t/Q6lNTygNKr90

It looks like Threshold2 is now overriding Threshold1?

Total we're shooting for is 13.50


On another note - the client has suggested this:

"I'm thinking in my head a singles page and 4's page and a 9's page, so if they want more than 1 they choose the 4's page and so on. Or does that not work like that?"

Bearing in mind that these 23 items are also intended to be 100% assortable in the cart (ie. any 4 'flavors' for the discount price schedule) - is this a viable solution?

Thanks,
Andrea

re this part:
"so from what i've heard on the phone, you are selling 1 item at 3.50, 4 for 10 and 9 for 20, but 5 and 10 do not get a discount"

4 of the 5 DO get a discount - but #5 does not

Hi Andrea,

Sorry I was under the impression that after 5 the discount was no longer applied.

Not a problem though, it just means in the price for threshold 2 you would put 2.70 (4 x 2.50 = 10 | 10 + 3.50 = 13.50 | 13.50/5 = 2.70)

Kind Regards

James
