Working with volume discounts

Volume discounts are applied if the customers add appropriate amounts of items of selected products to their shopping carts. The system automatically calculates and applies these discounts during the checkout process, or while adding new orders or editing existing ones in the administration interface.

You can set up multiple volume discount levels. This allows you to apply different discounts on different amounts of purchased product items. For example, you can provide a 10 % discount if the customers buy at least three Nike Race Day T-shirts and a 15 % discount if they purchase at least five items of this product.
