Bulk discounts

Bulk discounts

Encourage customers to purchase more by providing bulk discounts depending on the ordered quantity and on the specific product.

Bulk discounts can be defined at site-wide (globally), category wise or per product wise. Provide a fixed per product discount or percentage of the total purchase. The plugin implements a greater flexibility in providing discounts without requiring the customers to apply a coupon.

You can also restrict the application of the discount depending on the customer groups.

Requirements

  • PHP 5.4 or higher
  • Joomla 3.3 or above
  • J2Store 3.2.x or above

Installation Instructions

  1. Use the Joomla installer to install the app.
  2. Go to J2store -> Apps and enable app.

**Priority of the discounts:

**Here is how the priority of the discount rules is decided. Following is the priority from high to low.

  • Product-level settings
  • Category-level settings
  • Global settings

That is, when there is a product-level discount set and a category-level discount set, the product-level rule would be of higher priority than the category-level rule.

The same goes for the global rule as well. At any cost, the product-level setting would be given the high priority.

Also, when there is a category-level discount set, the product level setting for enable bulk discount parameter should be NO. If not, the product-level setting would be given priority, thus overriding the category level setting.

  • **Cart percentage - **To set up a percentage discount at the cart page for a particular product, choose this option. For example: a 20% discount, a 30% discount. As the name goes, this discount would be applied only at the cart level.

For example: If you are setting up a discount for a T-shirt product, and the t-shirt has options, say, size as Small, Medium and Large. If the user chooses to buy a shirt of the size small and one shirt of the size medium, then should these two quantities be added?
