I offer a subscription option that collects a fixed one-time price, and then 36 months of subscription payments. That is simple and predicated on a quantity of one item.

If the customer chooses a quantity of more than 1 but less then 10, I want to discount the one-time fixed price of the subscription offering by 10%. Any customer that orders 10 or more items should get 20% off their one-time price.

Is there a way with the Subscription API to provide the customer with discounts to the one-time fixed pricing in this manner? Or is the Subscription API only capable of discounting the subscription amounts collected at the dei

Hi!

You can follow this help doc https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/discounts/automatic-discounts which explains in detail how to setup automatic discount on a shop. This would apply only at checkout and not on recurring charges.

Hi!

The subscriptions API will allow you to add discounts to the recurring charges of a subscription product. In order to discount the price at checkout which would be the one time fixed pricing you would need to create an automatic discount or use Scripts. Scripts would allow you to create a tiered discount based on the quantity and have the ability to detect the presence of a selling plan which would be indicative of a subscription item being present in the cart.

 

Hope this answers your question!

I would appreciate you explaining this concept of "Automatic Discount" being applied. How does that work? Are you sure it works with the fixed price of a Subscription plan?

As for Scripts, sure, would love to, but at the moment this shop is not on Plus. So that is out.
