    The features say you can set up discounts for individual items. Anyone know how to do that? I only see one discount setup and it's for the whole store, not individual items.

    Taken from Mal's suport page. - Quanitity discounts

    You might want to offer a discount on a product as people buy more of it. To do this, instead of a single price, you pass in an array of price points in a field called discountpr.The syntax for the field is a little complicated at first glance.

    You can have an unlimited number of prices points, each one is separated by a comma. Each price point has a range and a price for the product, separated by a colon.

    &discountpr=3,9.99:4,8.99:0,6.99

    OK the previous answer was cut short. Here is the rest.

    For forms it would look like

    The above example means:
    if they order 3 or less the price is $9.99,
    if they order up to 4 more (i.e. 7), the price is $8.99,
    if they order more than 3 + 4, the price is $6.99.

    The last range always means "more than". It is set to 0 in the example above but in fact what you enter is simply ignored.

    What would the code look like if you want to use a percentage?
    buy 6 and get 5 percent discount
    buy 12 and get 10 percent discount?

    &discountpr=6,05%:12,10%

    Thanks for any help. ;-)

    I too am looking for a way to offer a discount for an individual product or at least a category of product. I am not interested in quantity discounts though. Is this possible to do?
    All help is appreciated. Thanks.
