Volume discounts will help you to free up stock in your eCommerce, reduce production and management costs per unit and increase the total sales of your eCommerce. In this step-by-step guide, you will learn how to create and automate volume discounts in a few minutes with Planet.

Create a rule

The first step to creating a discount is to add a new rule. To do this, you must access the rules page and click on "add rule".

When you do this, a pop-up will appear with the available presets to create your rule. In this case, to create a volume discount you should choose the "Volume discount" preset.

Configure your rule

1. Select the products

To create a rule in any of the available templates, you must choose the products on promotion.

2. Actions

In this case, the only action required is the configuration of the volume discount.

This configuration includes:

  • Product combination: The discount will be applied to buying X units of the same item, variant, or buying X units of combined items of the selected products.

  • Quantity: the discount is applied for a minimum quantity (from 5 products) or a fixed quantity (buy exactly 10 units).

  • Discount options: we must select the quantity of products to apply the discount, the amount of discount, and the type of discount.

    Discount types:

    • Percentage discount: 10% discount when buying 2 units

    • Quantity discount: 10€ discount per unit, when buying 2 units

    • Fixed price per unit: 10€ each unit when buying 2 units

    • Total fixed price: 20€ total when buying 2 units

    • No discount: original price without additional discount

  • Cart & checkout label: optionally we can edit the name that appears in the cart for the discount applied. In the case that this field is blank, you will see the default name: Volume discount.

  • Other discount combinations: This allows you to choose if you want to combine this discount with other product discounts and/or shipping discounts.

3. Widgets

It will be necessary to add the block for each widget in the Shopify theme to allow them to be displayed on the product page.

3.1 Banner on product page

Optionally, you can add a banner on your product page to inform your customers of the promotion.

Texts and appearance of this banner are customizable for each rule.

3.2 Volume discount selector on product page

Optionally, you can add a volume discount selector on your product page to show the discount on your products and variants and promote your product sales.

The texts, buy button, and appearance of the selector are customizable for each rule.

4. Schedule the rule

When you create the rule, the date of rule creation will be set as the default start date. You can edit the start date and optionally, add an end date or more schedules.
