  • In Customer Group column, choose each customer group (E.g: Not Logged In, General, Wholesale, VIP Member, Private Sales Member…) you want to set tier price on.
  • In Qty column, fill minimum quantity of product which each customer group has to buy with to get the tier price.
  • In Type column, there are 2 types of discount: Fixed and % Discount. Choose one of them to apply to new tier price.
  • In Of column, choose 1 of 2 options to apply the discount on Standard Price and Group Price. Remember that if admin chooses Fixed on Type column, this section is disabled.
  • In Value column, fill with a new value for tier price by a new dollar amount (for a fixed price) or by percentage (for % discount)

For this example:

  • Only when not-logged-in customers buy this product with at least 5 items, they will get the new tier price which is fixed ($47).
  • Only when general customers buy this product with at least 10 items, they will get the new tier price which is 5% discount on the standard price ($50).

The new tier price = $50 – $50*5% = $47.5

  • Only when the wholesalers buy this product with at least 15 items, they will get the tier price which is 10% discount on the group price ($40)

The new tier price = $40 – $40*10% = $36

After all, click on Save or Save and continue edit buttons to save the configuration. All the tier prices will be automatically updated and displayed on frontend.
