I would like to create 3 price options based on the quantity a customer purchases of the same product. Ideally, I would like them to have a dropdown bar and be able to select either 1, 2 or 3 of the same item, each at a different price.
It would look like these:
- 1 product costs $A
- 2 products costs $B
- 3 products costs $C
I tried setting this up with automatic discounts but it was very clunky and customers were getting errors messages if they ordered 2 of one product and 1 of another.
Is there any way to set this up without going through yet another Shopify App that I would have to add to my store?
I don't suppose you're running on Shopify Plus? This can be done through the script editor that plus members have access to. The only way I can think to do it without that is have 3 different versions of the product at the 3 different prices, the on the cart page run a script that checks the items in the cart for your item, checks it's quantity, then removes it and replaces it with the corresponding product quantity price. So lets say you're selling a Tea Cup, and you want to offer discounts like you said. Make 3 different products :
Tea Cup 1 Quantity: $3,
Tea Cup 2 Quantity: $5,
Tea Cup 3 Quantity: $7
Then on the cart page you'll check and see if the teacup is in the cart with the Shopify Ajax Api, check it's quantity, remove it and replace it with the corresponding product to the initial quantity in the cart.
Another way I can think of is to do it through different variants of the product. You could make a product template that removes the quantity selector from that specific product and just have 3 different variants at the 3 different price points.
Well go ahead and make a test product with a couple of variants. Or even simulate what you want to do, then check the preview of the product to see how it handles it. It will probably be with a drop down menu. What theme are you currently using?
We are also looking for a way to do this. Our store is www.stateofthebutton.com – at present selling bulk quantities but we want to offer single items with quantity discounts.
Outstanding examples are Cafepress.com and Zazzle.com – screenshots attached. Near as we can tell, Shopify doesn't offer this ability. Any help from the community, or Shopify staff who monitor this, is appreciated.
