Adding a Product | Bulk Pricing

Bulk pricing is a feature that allows you to offer discounts when customers buy certain quantities of a particular product. For example, you might want to take 10% off the price when customers order 10 or more of a certain product. Bulk discounts are typically used by wholesalers, but retailers can also use them as an incentive to purchase more. With BigCommerce, you can use the following types of bulk discount:

  • Price discount - you specify a dollar amount to be taken off each item when a certain quantity of the product is purchased
    • Purchases between X and Y quantities of this product will receive a Price discount of $Z for each individual item.
  • Percentage discount - you specify a percentage to be taken off each item when a certain quantity of the product is purchased
    • Purchases between X and Y quantities of this product will receive a percentage discount of Z% for each individual item.
  • Fixed price - you specify a fixed price per item item when a certain quantity of the product is purchased
    • Purchases between X and Y quantities of this product will receive a fixed price of $Z for each individual item.
 

What if I'm using a sale price? If you have set up sale pricing or price change rules, bulk pricing will take those adjusted prices into account. You may find it useful to know the order of operations our various discount engines follow.
