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.

- Optionally display updated discount in basket prior to checkout
- Can use wildcard instead of entering category codes for the group

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
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
