Whoever said, “less is more” didn’t take advantage of quantity discounts. 👚👚👚  These discounts give customers special pricing when they buy products in bulk. 

Volusion enables you to offer quantity discounts as either dollars off or a percentage off. For example, you might want to reduce the price by 10% if a customer buys more than 10 of a certain product, and 15% off if they buy more than 50 units. To do this you need to set up a discount for each quantity range, “10 - 49” and “50 and over.”

To do this:

  1. Go to Marketing > Coupons/Discounts and click Add
  2. Assign a Discount Name to the discount (for example, “10% Off Ten or More”)
  3. Select Percent off a PRODUCT from the Discount Type menu
  4. Set the Discount Value to “10”
  5. Use the Select Products link to search for and choose any number of products to assign this discount to. 
  6. Under Advanced Info, select Define Quantity Requirements and enter “10” in the Minimum Quantity field
  7. Enter "49" in the Maximum Quantity field
  8. Click Save
  9. Repeat the process, this time creating a discount called “15% Off Fifty or More"
  10. Enter “50” for the Minimum Quantity
  11.  Leave the Maximum Quantity blank
  12. At Inventory > Products, click the three-dot actions menu icon and select All Products Settings
  13. Make sure the Display Discount Button checkbox is selected

Now, when a customer views this product on your storefront, they'll see a button labeled View Quantity Discounts. When they click the button, they'll see a pop-up window showing the discount quantities and rates that apply. 

The customer doesn't have to do anything to qualify for these discounts – other than buy the product in the appropriate quantity! 👍

You can apply the discount to any product – or even entire categories. You can also set a date range so that the discount only applies during the specified period.

Quantity discounts give your customers a price break that encourages them to shop big with you. Bulk purchases help you move out inventory and add to your bottom line. Win-win! 🏆
