Quantity Discount threshold

Recommended Posts

Ive looked and came up empty handed. Is there a way to add thresholds pricing to quantities on items? For example, if you buy 1-10 of product A, its $15.99, but if you buy 10-20 of product A, they are 12.99. etc etc. I need a way to set the thresholds, and then hope that it also calculates it.

 

TIA

Yes and no. You can but it is going to be a lot of work.

The solution is to use variants. So the variant title would be called Quantity. Then each variant would be a different quantity, 1, 2, 3... You would then price each variant accordingly. But like I said this is a lot of work, you won't be able to keep track of inventory, updating prices will be tedious and each variant will need its own SKU.

Hi guys,

Did this ever go any further?

I need to apply a discount to quantities on a winery website - there needs to be an option to make a mixed case of wine for 10% off.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

I have just had a support query answered on this and there isn't any way to offer multi buy/quantity threshold discounts.

I'm looking to offer a "buy 3 and get the third for $X" or X% off on our website but there is no way to do this. The benefit of having this as a discount option is the ability to manage inventory effectively so that if people buy 3 of our single products and receive a discount on the third, the single product inventory still gets updated. 

There was a suggestion to just offer a discount if someone spends over the amount that 3 products cost but unfortunately we have different variants (size) and it wouldn't be able to account for that. They also suggested adding a new separate product that was just the bundle - then buyers could selected the variants from a drop down but this doesn't work in practice as the variants end up being too many to manage AND they don't link up to inventory of the single product pages. This would then mean having to continually update the single product stock level after every 3 product set was bought.

I have asked this to be considered as a feature requested but based on the lack of responses on here to these queries that I can see, I don't know if it's a priority.

They have finally suggested looked at custom CSS code for this and I'm looking into this now and will report back if I get anything that may work. Similarly if anyone on here can think of a way to create custom CSS to implement these quantity discounts, please let me know!!

I know Shopify have their app store with products that offer this functionality - it's a pretty common e-commerce offering to be honest and I was quite surprised SquareSpace didn't have a way to offer it when I went to try and add it. Oh well!

Just a quick update - the external coder I contacted about this confirms that there's no CSS workaround for the discount functionality being discussed here, despite SquareSpace suggesting this route to me.

I have been pointed to consider Shopify Buy and link products from there back to the SquareSpace site but this of course involves further monthly cost and is a workaround that is not ideal at all.

Me too. I need price variants based on quantities up to 1000 products. This should be a main feature as ecommerce generally allows bulk discounts. I cant input a different price for 1000 products manually.

There is no solution for this yet. The only workaround is the post above.

is it possible to use Shopify lite and their volume discount app and integrate this into Squarespace? So embed the button?

Paul2009 says "Squarespace do not monitor this forum for product feedback". If that's true then they are a completely inept company with ZERO intelligence. Puh-lease, the designers in here (like myself) who build LOTS sites for clients on their system (thus bringing them LOTS of $$$$ with MANY new subscribers every year) are not being listened to??? There is NO WHERE more important for a company to look at than directly at a community (HERE) who basically is a major backbone to their earnings. This community points out the good... and the bad of SS. There are numerous and obvious short-comings that have been complained about for years and have NEVER been addressed by SS - it is insane. Paul2009 I sincerely hope you are wrong... otherwise SS is seriously a disaster of a company for not paying attention to this forum.

They should do what Shopify does and get developers to create apps, plugins at a small cost to add further shopping functions etc.
