Latest Versions: 5.006
Merchant Version:
Volume pricing at the category (group) level. Easily offer a discount based on the number of items in the basket and the categories those items are in. You can even create the group with individual product codes instead of category codes. Display the category discount tiers in a table on the category pages. This module is for MIVA Merchant 5.x. We also have the corresponding module for an older version of Merchant.

- Discount based on number of items ordered
- Set up to 4 tiers (12 in group 1) of discounts per category group
- Can have 8 groups (each containing one or more categories), each with different discount tiers
- Category wide, multi-category or store wide discounts
- Optionally apply discount after other discounts have lowered the subtotal
- Discount shows at checkout as separate line item
- Optionally display updated discount in basket prior to checkout
- Can use wildcard instead of entering category codes for the group
- Can exclude a single price group, e.g. Wholesale, from receiving the discount
- Discount table on category page
- Discount table on product page
- Combine product codes to form a group vs category codes

Feature Details:
The default is to calculate product charges in the specified category(ies) (including attribute charges) to determine the subtotal to discount. You can optionally include non-product charges/discounts (e.g. fees, coupons) in the calculation.

In admin, the store owner configures the trigger levels (number of items needed to activate the discount) and the corresponding percentage off. The store owner can designate 1 - 4 trigger levels (12 in group 1) so that he/she can vary the percentage discount based on the number bought. Reward the customer; the more the customer buys, the higher the discount percentage.

The store owner then includes a list of category codes that will be used in the calculation. Use this module for category-wide or store-wide discounts. You can even include product codes for those products you want to include in the group but are not necessarily in a category you want to discount.

The discount amount will appear during checkout on the screen after the customer has entered their shipping method. This allows Merchant to include (optionally) any miscellaneous fees or coupons redeemed on the Shipping - Payment selection screen so the subtotal will be adjusted before the discount. You can optionally display the discount in the basket screen prior to checkout.

In admin you can setup eight separate groups with their own four-tiered discount and categories. Hence, if you want to discount one category of products with one set of rules (levels) and another category with a different set of rules, you can do this. Multiple categories can be assigned to each group. As the basket is scanned, the quantities are subtotaled for each group. The discount is applied based on each group's rules, then summed together at checkout. You can optionally display the updated discounts prior to checkout in the regular basket screen, recalculating and updating discounts based on changing basket contents.

In admin, you can choose one price group, e.g. Wholesale, which is not eligible for the discount since they presumably already benefit from significantly lower prices.

You can use the asterisk (*) to replace the category codes. When the module encounters the asterisk instead of category codes, it considers all further products eligible. As example, the asterisk in the first group would make all products in the store eligible for the discount. On the other hand, category codes in the first group would apply the first group rules to those categories. Then if there is an asterisk in the second group, all other products in the store would use those discount rules.

You can use product codes to create the groups rather than or in addition to category codes. To differentiate a product code from the expected category code in the input, you preceed the product code with the # character and terminated it with the | character. Thus, you can combine a mix of products from other than specific categories to form the group discount.

On the category and product pages you can automatically display a table showing the price break tiers for the category being displayed or the group the product is in. You can place that table anywhere on the page template using a standard store morph token.

See the module's slide show (link above) for screen shots which show various features of the module.

The module currently fully supports the mivasql configuration of MIVA Merchant 5. It also supports MySQL as long as load balancing has the data stored on the single MySQL server and permissions are set correctly on the data directories. This would be the case in most of the server setups. If you are using Merchant 5.x and your host is web.com, you will not be able to use this module due to the way they configure their servers. There are no known issues with other hosts.
