    If you were to explain to me a real world example of what you are trying to accomplish on a product and its price maybe I can answer this ... but I am not picturing what you are trying to accomplish here.

    Just type slow ... I am not real bright :)

    Linda - you can pretend to be dull all you want... we know better..

    OK.. here's the full explaination.
    I'd love to have a discount structure that is attached to a client, but could be limited by catagory. i.e. Client A gets 10% off everything except categories X,Y, and Zed.
    Having exhaused that scenario and found out that, as wonderful as ZenCart is, it's not able to do that yet.

    So, I figured that, since I'm a wholesaler, and my client base is near fixed, I could represent the discounts offered by the cunning use of attributes. Provide all of the discounts in either a pull down or radio button option and have the order puller double check the discount chosen against what the client is elligible for.

    All good so far?

    So product Xyzzy has an SRP of 29.95.
    I select "price by attributes" in the product add/edit page.

    I want the pulldown menu to have the following options
    40% off
    45% off
    47% off

    I've set up the Options and Values (they work if I want to up the price).
    Now, if I want the price to go UP by 40% I just change the Price Factor to .6.
    But if I want the price to go down ,it doesn't seem to register if I want the Price Factor to be -.6.

    So, what I've done is set the Price Attribute to -29.95 (negating the retail of the product in question) and the price factor to .6. This works. Kinda.
    It's not possible to copy this Attribute set to other products.. unless they have the same SRP. The Subtotal on the Shopping Cart shows the price being discounted.

    Maybe you could explain why the game is discounted.

    Why would one be 45% off and another 47% off?

    I run a wholesale distributor company.
    40% off SRP is the standard discount
    45% off SRP is offered to clients that preorder X dollars worth of product from a monthly catalog.
    47% off SRP is offered to clients that preorder Y dollars worth of product from a monthly catalog.

    Since I can't tie discounts to clients though Zencart (yet)
    I'm going to allow the client pick their discount and correct any discrepancies on the back end.

    I see said the blind man ...

    Okay this should be able to be done with the attributes price factor ...

    You have a products_price and then the attributes_price_factor and an attributes_price_factor_offset

    By combining these in combination you should be able to get the proper price.

    The formula is products_price * (attributes_price_factor - attributes_price_factor_offset)

    Example:

    40% off
    products_price $100
    attributes_price_factor .60
    attributes_price_factor_offset 1.00
    Price: $60.00

    45% off
    products_price $100
    attributes_price_factor .55
    attributes_price_factor_offset 1.00
    Price: $55

    47% off
    products_price $100
    attributes_price_factor .53
    attributes_price_factor_offset 1.00
    Price: $53

    Note you can remove the + prefix also so it reads correctly.

    Hi, I need some tips on the fllowing.

    If you go tot this link http://www.easybeading.com.au/zen/index.ph...o&products_id=2
    could you let me know how to get rid of the Qty Discounts New Price box. I've tried undoing what I did to get it there but it didn't work.

    Also, if someone ticks the checkbox for buy 2 (or 3/4/5 for that matter) and adds to cart, is there a way of decreasing the units in stock by the qty chose?

    ANy ideas will be greatly apreciated.
    Raquel.

    I believe I mentioned on another message to you ... but just go to the Products Price Manager for this product.

    Edit ...
    Enter 0 on QTY
    Update ...

    For what you are trying to do, I would use Product Discount Quanties.

    Set the products_price for the price of 1

    Then Add Discount Quanties for the rest.

    They can either be a Percentage or an Actual Price

    Using the Attributes is not the best way nor the most efficient way to do this.

    The Discount Quantities would work much better for you.

    Now when the customer buys 4 they will get the right price.

    I have an attribute question that is a little different than the questions above.

    I have one product with 5 purchasing options:

    > Book
    > Download Option 1
    > Download Option 2
    > Download Option 3
    > Trial Download (FREE)

    Right now the Book needs to be discounted by $5.00. But I want all the Downloads to remain the same price. E.g. the Book originally costs $52.50, but with the special it costs $47.50. All the Downloads cost $20, except the Trial Download which is free.

    To do this I set the products 'Price by Attribute' to YES.

    I set the prices for each attribute in the Attribute Controller. I turned on the ‘Apply Discounts Used by Product Special/Sale:’ feature to YES for the Product’s ‘Book’ attribute. For all the Download attributes that is set to NO. This way the discount will only apply to the Book and not the Downloads. Also, ‘Include in Base Price When Priced by Attributes’ is set to NO for all attributes.

    In the Price Manager I installed a Special ($47.50) and set the Product Price Info to the original Book price ($52.50) before the discount.

    When you select the Book in the shopping cart and click Add to Cart, the shopping cart lists the Book at $100 ($52.50+$47.50) but the Sub-Total in the shopping cart is at $47.50. It is processing the discount, but for some reason inside the cart it is adding the base price and the attribute sale price together but displaying the Sub-Total at the bottom of the cart correctly. If I add the Trial Download (free) to the cart the total price displays at $52.50 but the Sub-Total is $0.

    It is confusing that the shopping cart is listing the price of the book two different ways. Id there another way to apply a special or a sale to one attribute and not the others without this weird shopping cart bug?

    Thanks.
