Merchant Version:
Volume pricing discounts your product base prices based on the number of items ordered of identical products, eg 1-3 = standard price, 4-6 = lower, etc. Buy in volume, get a discount. This module is for MIVA Merchant 5.x. We also have the corresponding module for an older version of Merchant.

Feature Details:
This module's admin interface provides an easy to enter "from - to cost" format. You can literally have as many ranges as you want to type in. See the image below for example syntax. You can either use actual values to replace the base price or percent of price to be subtracted from the product base price. These price differentials are added directly in the admin interface under the product edit screen. You only apply these price differentials in the products that you want to use them.

This module applies the price in your low, high, cost groupings. If you do not include a grouping at the single item level, it will use the method for pricing in your store. It only activates if you include a low, high, cost grouping. For example:

The module only uses price groups when using the percent off discount calculation. If you enter fixed prices for the quantity ranges, then price groups are ignored. Keep in mind that the percent discounts could be over and above the discount already given if you are using price groups.

You can opt to not give the price group an additional discount above the volume pricing. You can even make all or some price groups not eligible for volume pricing and hide the table from them completely. Conversely, you can exclude everybody from volume pricing except specific price group members. Customers must be logged in to identify the price group they are in before the volume pricing module can qualify or disqualify them from volume pricing if you are using the price group restrictions.

The percentage discounting method subtracts the percent discount from the base price. Base price does not include attribute prices. To apply the percentage, simply include the percent symbol (%) in the line. If you are using cost method for your store (other than price groups), you will not be able to use the percentage discounting method. Instead, use the actual value method.

If you are using another third party module which overrides prices in the basket and recomputes them using the price in the product record, you may not be able to use this module. Other third party modules may not recognize that it needs to apply the calculations in this module.

This volume pricing manager recognizes identical products. Hence different product codes will change the product enough that the discount won't apply. For example 3 red shirts and 6 blue shirts will not give the discount of 9 shirts. Rather, they'll get the discount rate of 3 for one of the line items and 6 for the other.

You can amalgamate quantities so in the example above, as long as the product code is the same and the color variation is done with attributes, all 9 items would get the volume discount for 9 items. You have the option for each product code to amalgamate quantities or treat varied attributes as different products.

You can optionally include a table on the product (PROD) and category (CTGY) screens displaying the rates as generated from the products' volume discount record. You can optionally have a quantity input in that table display on the category screen. These options are configured through admin.

If you want to have a sale on one or more items. Simply set the volume to 1 or more with a specific discount percentage and you have a sale with as low as display. You can use the token %product_price_f% to further highlight that with a strike thru. To make this feature even more useful, you can enter a starting and ending date for the sale so that it will start and end automatically.

For ease of entry, a flat file import module is included. You can put all product codes in the flat file or use an asterisk (*) and one line of "rules" to apply the volume price to all products in the store. Create a storewide sale, e.g. 10% off in seconds with a specific start and stop date. Then just as quickly remove all settings at your leisure after the sale. There is also a volume price export so you can quickly build your flat file, then edit or add to it. This is useful when you want to have a storewide sale on all products but retain volume prices on your regularly discounted items. Export the volume prices. Import your sale settings. Import your volume discounts on the few you want to maintain at pre-sale prices.

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.
