Video Tutorial - How to Setup Quantity Discount in VPCart 9

Quantity discount is based on purchasing a quantity of a certain product or group of products. Applying Quantity Discount is very straight forward

Step 1. For example, we add quantity 5 for the product Computer Desk that cost $100 for each item

Step 2. Click View Cart

Step 3. You can see the total amount is $500 for 5 items

Now we will apply Quantity Discount for the product Computer Desk

Step 1. For this Go to VPCart administration: Discount / Coupon Manager >> Quantity Discounts

Step 2. Click Add Record

Step 3. In this example, the Computer Desk Product is Catalogid 1, so we will enter 1 in the catalogid field

Step 4. Enter the Quantity range that will aplly for this product

Step 5. We will set quantity to range from 5 to 10, so if a customer purchases between 5 and 10 the discount will apply.

Step 6. Enter the Discount amount. Example 20 means a $20 discount. If the value is less than 1 it will be treated as a percent. For 10% enter 0.10

Step 7. Click Add a record

'Added 1' will be shown as status

You can add Discount range for higher quantities if needed

Step 8. Now, Lets order 5 Computer Desks. You will get Discount of $20 per item.

Before applying quantity discount the price per item was $100 and now it is $80. Original price shown in brackets.

Now let us take another example of same product Computer Desk with catalogid 1 and minimum quantity 10.

Step 1. For this add Quantity Discount record from VPCart administration: Discount / Coupon Manager >>Quantity Discounts

Step 3. Enter Catalogid which is 1 for Computer Desk and minquantity as 10.

10 to 20 items gets 10% discount, so enter quantity1 - 20 and discount1 - 0.1, which means 10% discount

20 to 30 items gets 20% discount, so enter quantity2 - 30 and discount2 - 0.2, which means 20% discount

Similarly 30 to 40 items gets 30% discount and more than 40 items gets 50% discount. We set the last quantity as a higher number 99999.

Step 3. Click Add a Record

Step 4. Go back to your shop and you can see a table with the price per item after discount.

Step 5. Now lets order 40 items, so as per the table the price per item is $70 (30% discount)
