What is Bulk Discounts by Intervals?

Bulk Discounts by Intervals is a type of bulk discount that lets you give bulk discounts to your customers, based on your defined minimum and maximum values, over one or more steps.

If the quantity ordered is between a minimum or a maximum value, then the discount specified will be applied. It helps define the intervals in which discount types can be applied, for example, if the client purchase between the intervals of 5-10 he gets a 10% discount, or 10$ off, or a free gift. If he buys between intervals of 10-20, he gets 15% off (percentage), or 20$ off (fixed amount), or 2 free gifts (give N for free).

In the example below, the store offers a fixed product price for a bulk quantity of 1 to 99, and another for 100 and beyond.

Bulk Discounts by Intervals for More than One Product

You may need to set up bulk discounts for more than one product. To achieve this, you will need to use the Product List feature, to create the list of products that the discount will reflect on (Click here for a tutorial on how to do that).

For example, if a customer orders between 12 and 50 items from the Hoodset product list, give a fixed discount of $25 off the subtotal.

After setting up the product list, follow these steps:
