Hi. I am trying to launch my company's first foray into eCommerce. I have everything set up and ready to go, except for the discounting.
Basically we are offering numerous products all at the same base price, x. For the discounting, we have two scenarios. If the customer buys 3 or 5 products (can be various products or the same product), instead of paying 3x or 5x, the customer will pay 3x-15% or 5x-15%.
I have configured the discounts using the minimum item total, but there is no maximum item total so the discount doesn't turn off after the minimum is reached. Next I tried using a discount code, but the code is still applied once you exceed the minimum. Same problem.
I can probably live with the discount being applied to orders of 4 products, but for anything over 5, my boss wants the person to either pay the full price or call to arrange bulk order discounting as well as other incentives. He can also upsell the client on other products that might also interest them. If the discount just gets blindly applied to all orders over 5, there is no incentive for the client to call.
It appears the only recourse I have left is to implement a variant, essentially coding in the bundled discount for each product item. The problem is that the variant seems to apply to individual products sold in multi-packs of the same product, whereas our scenario allows for cross-product bundling. Anyone have any ideas on how to work this type of discounting given the limitations of e-junkie? If there were a maximum item option, it would solve the whole problem, but there isn't.
