Starting from X-Cart 5.4.1.x it is possible to apply discounts to wholesale pricing and include them in sale offers if set percentage-wise. This becomes possible if the Wholesale add-on is used alongside the Sale Add-on.

The add-on Wholesale adds the following wholesale pricing related settings to a single product and group discounts:

  • Apply product-specific discount to wholesale price: This toggler is added to the “Prices & Inventory” section of product details and allows applying a single product discount to wholesale pricing if the former set in percentages.
  • Apply sale discount to wholesale prices: This toggler is added to sale offer properties (Discounts -> Sale -> New sale) and allows including products with wholesale prices into a sale offer. The offer is valid for wholesale pricing only if the discount amount is set in percentages.

In case a product with wholesale pricing is included in a sale offer, a related record displays in the Wholesale pricing tab of product details informing a store admin of the limitation set.

Configuration Examples

Now let us take a closer look at how you configure specific pricing tiers. Consider the following example:

We have a product that we want to sell, and we want to define pricing tiers for it so that customers without a membership would be able to purchase the product at the following prices:

  • 1-9 units - $50
  • 10-99 units - $49
  • 100+ units - $47

(As you can see, the more product units are purchased, the lower the price is).

We also have a privileged ‘Wholesaler’ membership level to which we want to give even lower prices:

  • 1-1000 units - $45 (a 10% discount off the unprivileged Tier-1 price, $50)
  • 1001+ units - $42.5 (a 15% discount off the unprivileged Tier-1 price, $50)

How do we configure pricing tiers?

In this case, we need to create and set up pricing tiers as follows:

Quantity range: from 1

Price: $50

Membership: All customers

Quantity range: from 10

Price: $49

Membership: All customers

Quantity range: from 100

Price: $47

Membership: All customers

Quantity range: from 1

Price: $45 or 90%

Membership: Wholesaler

Quantity range: from 1000

Price: $42.5 or 85%

Membership: Wholesaler
