    I sell a custom made product where the first one takes lots of time to make, but copies of the same product takes less time to produce. I would like to charge something like: First one $30, 2nd thru 10th $15, 11th and above $10 each.

    If I use this;
    <input type="hidden" name="discountpr" value="1,30.00:10,15.00:0,10.00">
    and customer orders 2, they both sell for 15.00.

    I need to get 30.00 for the first one, and 15 for the 2nd one, for a total of 45.00. The charge for 11 should be (1 @ 30.00 + 10 @ 10.00) = 130.00

    Any ideas?

    I'd use a price for the first, then apply the discountpr for the others.

    Set up cost $30.00 <input type="checkbox" name="price1" value="30.00">
    <input type="hidden" name="qty1" value="1">
    <input type="hidden" name="product1" value="Set up fee">

    <input type="hidden" name="discountpr2" value="10,15.00:0,10.00">
    <input type="hidden" name="product2" value="Product name">
    Qty: <input type="text" name="qty2" value="">

    Having trouble with a form or need one building?
    Fast turnaround, but I do charge :)

    Mal's Forms / Scripts and the syntax are here.
