To configure a volume discount in an X-Cart store, follow the steps below:

1. In your store’s Admin area, go to the Volume discounts section (Discounts > Volume discounts) and click Add discount.

2. On the discount details screen that opens, specify the parameters you require.

  • Discount type: Select between fixed amount and percentage.

  • Discount amount: Set the discount amount accordingly.

  • Active from: Set the discount validity period start date. (Optional)

  • Active till: Set the discount expiration date. (Optional)

  • Subtotal: An order subtotal amount starting from which the discount should apply.
    For example, if you set this to “100” (USD), the discount will be available for orders with a subtotal amount equal to or more than $100.

  • Membership: Set the membership level to which the discount should be available.

  • Zones: Select address zones for which the discount is available.

  • Vendor: This field is available only in X-Cart Multivendor. For information on using this field, see Volume Discounts: Usage with Multivendor.

3. Once you are done, click Create. The discount will be created and added to the list:

If necessary, you can add more than one discount differentiated by subtotal ranges and membership levels.


Volume discounts do not sum up: if a customer’s order meets more than one volume discount condition, they will still get only one deal (the most significant discount available).
