    Now if almost everything in your store is excluded, you may want to simply use the native Zen Cart Quantity Discounting mechanism; it is designed to be applied product by product.

    Thanks for the quick reply, Scott. You are speaking of the Group Discount module in admin/order total modules, correct? Honestly I hadn't noticed it before. I've installed it but don't know how to go about using it. I've serached the forum and there are a number of mods floating around (Group Discount, Group Pricing etc) but I don't see this particular mod in the downloads section. Can you point me in the direction of a readme for it?

    Also, I have your Better Together mod installed. Can I also use the Group Discount add-on at the same time?

    Thanks again for your assistance - Tim

    This has nothing to do with Group Discounts. The native Quantity Discount facility is something different. It's described in the manual.

    Yes, you can use Better Together and/or Quantity Discounts and/or Group Discounts together.

    Default No discount being applied.

    I installed your V.1.8 in the current release of ZEN 3.8.1. While all the controls are in place in admin no discounts are calculated. Not sure if I did something wrong or have failed to do something I should have.

    I need to apply a discount on each item when 5 different items in same category are purchased for download. These are songs priced at $0.99 per dowload and we want to be able to discount each different song if they buy 5 or more by $0.19 each.

    I entered discount
    [currency per item]
    [total by item]
    [discount levl 1 = 5]
    [discount amount 1 = 0.19]

    I don't see anything in price manager etc. To activate discounts?

    Do I need to do something in particular to make them active for specific products? I did not see anything to tell me that in the Readme file.

    Thanks for your help.

    The Quantity Discounts contribution doesn't use the price manager. Did you go to checkout page 2 to look for the discount? This is an order total module and the discount is not shown until checkout time.

    Also, if you're selling downloads, you probably don't want total by item because noone's buying 5 of the same song. Use total by items in cart.

    Thanks for repyling to my other thread.
    I did not know that this mod existed.

    My site is very heavy in mods.
    I have loads of attributes and alot of product already use the qty
    discounts in the pricing manager.

    I have alot of new products that I want to put in and was thinking of something
    that this mod does. Will it effect the items I already put in?
    I didn't want this to effect my other products.
    So this doesn't actually fill the discounts in the Pricing attributes section?

    There are user exits you can use to bypass products you have discounted using another mechanism. Click the help link in the admin and search for "user exits" or read the FAQ.

    It does not fill in the discounts in the pricing attributes section; it uses a completely different mechanism.

    Howdy,

    I'm using quantity discounts v. 1.8

    I'm not quite getting the numbers I'm expecting during checkout when used with a group discount. Here's my settings:

    - include tax in calc: false
    - recalc tax: STANDARD
    - discount units: currency per item
    - discount basic: total items in cart

    Example calculation is using discount level 2 with 0.45 discounted per item


    I also am using a Group Discount of 10%, also set to NOT include tax and recalculate tax at STANDARD.

    What I get is:

    Sub-Total: $790 (200 items X $3.95)
    Quantity Discount: - $90 (200 X $0.45)
    Group Discount: - $69.24 (10% off)
    Shipping: $98.95
    Tax: $60.40 (0.084)
    Total: $790.11

    What I expect is:

    Sub-Total: $790 (200 items X $3.95)
    Quantity Discount: - $90 (200 X $0.45)
    Group Discount: - $70.00 (10% off)
    Shipping: $98.95
    Tax: $61.23 (0.084)
    Total: $790.18

    The first part where it goes wrong is with the 10% group discount (off by $0.76). I think, after some fooling around, I have a clue as to why that 10% is off. It looks like the Quantity discount mod is not only reducing the $90, but also $7.56, which is the tax on that $90. So the group discount was calculated by (10% of ($700 - $7.56) = $69.24).

    Anyways, is there a bug, or do I need to make an additional configuration change somewhere to get what I want?

    Thanks!

    You should be using recalculate tax = none in quantity discounts if these are the number you wish to get.

    Hey there, thanks for the reply.

    That definitely fixed the amount discounted. But then I have the issue of the final tax being too high.


    What I'd like, and what I'd expect as a shopper, is that the site would add up the costs, subtract the discounts, then apply the tax.


    So in this instance (790 - 90 - 70 + 98.95) = subtotal 728.95
    728.98 X 0.084 = 62.23 in taxes.


    I can't seem to get that to happen

    You'd have to write code to make it work this way. This is not a feature which is currently provided.
