Wholesale Tier Prices App for Shopify User Guide

1. Introduction

The document is a User Guide for app Wholesale Tier Prices created for Shopify websites. It describes the app functionality and provides some tips for a quick start.

The purpose of the app is to discount products and variants purchased in bulk. For each quantity break you can set either a fixed price or a discount relatively to the base price. You can create your own customer groups and set different discount breaks (tier prices) for them. For example, if you want to provide better discounts for your wholesale customers.

The app design is fully customizable and can be integrated into any Frontend theme via adjustable jQuery selectors. Contact our support if you need assistance.

Display discount breaks on the product view as a Table or as a List. Choose a design that better fits your site. Set the style globally and override it per product if needed. Configure colors, margins, the table columns and texts.

Set tier prices as Fixed amount or as a percentage Discount. If you set a percent the discount will be automatically calculated based on the product's base price. You can combine the methods in the same product if necessary. The app provides a real-time preview. You will see what your discount breaks table will look like while you are still editing the prices.

Discount breaks for Customer Groups. Create your own customer groups and associate customers with them. The app allows to create different discount breaks for different customer groups. For example, set some tier prices for regular customers and other ones for your wholesalers.

Configure tier prices for the entire Product or per Variant. You can set discounts for specific variants only, or set them for all variants within the product at once.

Display how much customer will save. The app automatically updates the product price on the product view when quantity changed. It also shows the amount the customer will save if they purchase the product.

Clickable tier price table. Customer can enter quantity manually or select one from the tier price table by clicking on a row.

Virtual discount breaks. You can create tier prices hidden on the Frontend, but still considered in calculations.

Default Quantity. Set default quantity for your products and variants.

Minimum and maximum quantity allowed. You can limit either or both if necessary. Customer will not be able to add a wrong quantity of the product to cart.

Quantity Increments. If you sell products in specific quantity steps you can set them using the app. For example, with quantity increments of 15, the customer will be able to buy only 15, 30, 45, 60, etc. items.

Sliding Scale Tier Pricing. If enabled the price will be calculated proportionally within the range. For example, price for 10 items is $50, for 20 items is $40. If customer selected 15 items the price will be $45, i.e. equally between two quantity breaks.

Translate or change texts. The app allows to modify all labels and texts displayed on the Storefront.
