    help question Creating Groups For Each Customer With Specific Discounts For Each Manufacturer

    What I'm looking to do is have discounts setup like this:

    Website - http://www.westnewtonsupply.com

    Code:
    Customer 2 - Fred Flinstone -  (Manufacturer 1) Wendy's Rubble 15%
                                   (Manufacturer 2)  Barney's Stone 45% 
    
    Customer 2 - Wilma Flinstone -  (Manufacturer 1) Wendy's Rubble 50%
                                    (Manufacturer 2) Barney's Stone 10%
    So each business will get a separate discount off each manufacturer depending on what I would choose for them..

    Is this possible? Is there any plugin/module that will help me set this up easily?

    This forum has been quite quiet lately

    Cheers.

    I know there's a Tiered Pricing plugin that might work similarly. I think it's based on prices defined at the product level though, not way up at the "manufacturer" level.

    Additional info that might help others give feedback:
    - do you ever offer sales/specials on your site?
    - how should this discount behave if an affected product is also on sale/special?
    - same with coupons ...

    - do you ever offer sales/specials on your site? No, I don't plan on offering sales/specials or using coupons of any kind. The way the site works is (or I'm hoping to get it working like is), I'll assign discounts based on business size / how often they buy from WNS. If they're a frequent buyer, I'll likely give them a better discount than someone who buys once every 8-12 months.

    I basically want to be able to assign multiple manufacturer discounts per customer

    Just had a bit of a plugin/google search, can't seem to find that plugin. Any chance of a link?
    Thanks for all your help so far. I really appreciate it.

    I think that one requires you to add group prices for each product on sale.

    What I'm looking for is a way to have an across-the-board group discount but also to have a way not to offer group discount to one specific product (it is being sold at such small margins that the discount would mean selling at a loss).
