Product quantity discounts - an overview
Product Quantity discounts allow you to give wholesale customers extra discounts based on the quantity of a product in the cart. Incentive customers to buy more by offering quantity breaks on specific products or variants.
Create a quantity discount
To create a Quantity Discount, from the app admin open the Volume Discounts page. Click Product Quantity Discounts, and then click the blue Create Discount button.
Quantity discounts are only available to wholesale customers, and are extra discounts offered on top of the wholesale price of the product.
Select a product or selection.
Quantity discounts are set per product or collection. Selecting product opens a product picker window. Select a product, and click Add.
Applying discounts to all variants
If a product has variants you will see a checkbox “Apply discount to all variants.”
If this box is checked: Quantity discounts will be triggered by the total quantity of the product in the cart, including variants.
If this box is unchecked: Unchecking this box will open inputs for each variant of a product, so you can set quantity discounts specific to each variant for a product.
Select the type of discount to be applied.
- Percent off
- Selecting “Percent off” will apply the quantity discount as an additional discount on top of the wholesale price of the product. For example if the wholesale price is $10.00 each, and the quantity discount is buy 10+ get 10% off, the wholesale price will be $9.00 each.
- Set price
- Selecting “Set Price” allows you to set a new wholesale price for the product. For example if the wholesale price of the product is $10.00, and you set a quantity discount of buy 10+ the Set Price is $7.50, the wholesale price will be $7.50.
Enter the minimum quantity required for the discount, along with the set price or discount, depending on the type of rule set.
Adding additional discount tiers
Below the Percent Off/Set Price selection you will see rows of inputs where you can set your discount tiers. If your product has variants, and you unchecked “Apply discount to all variants,” Then you will see separate sections for each variant.
Any input rows left blank will be ignored.
You can offer customers a range of discount tiers, unlocking bigger discounts as the customer buys more. To add another discount tier, click the “Add Tier” button in a discount group. This adds another input row where you can set the additional quantity breaks.
After saving, the app calculates the ranges for each tier, so you just need to enter the minimum quantity to trigger a specific tier.
Deleting a tier in a quantity discount
To delete a tier click the trashcan icon next to the tier you wish to remove.
Displaying discounts to wholesale customers
Product page pricing table
If a product has an active quantity discount, wholesale customers will see a detailed price breakdown on the product page on your store. Usually this appears right below the product description.
Table and text color
You can customize the table header text and color by opening the Online Store page from the Wholesale Gorilla app admin. Select Manage upsell settings. Scroll down to Product page settings where you can change the discount message and add hex codes to customize the colors.
Cart page display
Quantity discounts are calculated on the cart page. If a quantity discount is unlocked for a product, the customer will see the new discounted product price next to the original crossed-out wholesale price. They will also see the per-unit savings they unlocked in the Additional Discounts section.
Quantity discounts are only calculated on the cart page, and may not be visible in AJAX carts or cart drawers. These discounts will also not apply to manually created wholesale orders, as again, they're only calculated on the cart page in the front end of your shop.
