Volume pricing

Overview

Use Volume discounts to incentivize shoppers to purchase your products in large quantities/number of units. Set a different price per unit based on the total purchased quantity.

Example:

Quantity interval Cost per unit
1 to 100 $59
101 to 500 $49
501  and more $39

For this example, a shopper purchasing 55 units would pay 55*59= $3,245. Another, purchasing a quantity of 600 would pay 600*39= $23,400.

Availability

All Avangate accounts. 

Requirements

Create at least a product/subscription plan before defining pricing. 

Type

  • Net: without taxes - Avangate applies extra taxes to the default price, such as Tax/VAT for US/EU orders during  the ordering process. 
  • Gross: with taxes included - Avangate takes the taxes out of the costs paid by shoppers, without modifying the price during the ordering process. 

Currency

When defining product prices you can:

  1. Configure the price only for the default currency - Avangate converts amounts in the cart based on the currency selected by/for shoppers. Currency rates are available here: https://secure.avangate.com/content/...p?CURRENCY=USD

    This is an XML schema with the corresponding values for the other currencies compared to the one supplied in the CURRENCY query parameter.

  2. Specify prices in all currencies available for your account - Avangate serves shoppers the prices for all the currencies you set up without converting the amounts. 

Setup

Set volume discounts under the Pricing tab when editing or first configuring products. 

  • Products with dynamic pricing (with base price):
    1. Define your first quantity  interval and click save. The initial discounted price per unit is the same as the default price; changes as needed for at least the default currency or for all currencies available for your account.
    2. Click the Add new volume discount link, define the interval, the discounted price per unit and click Add interval.
    3. Repeat as needed. 
  • Static pricing (without base price)
    1. ​Create as many unit intervals for purchase volume discounts as you need and save the configuration. 
    2. Define prices for each possible option available to your shoppers in the Prices area. 

Limitations

Volumes not defined are available for purchase to your shoppers. For example, if you define two intervals, 1 to 100 and 102 to 1,000, your shoppers will not be able to purchase 101 units, or 1,200 units.
