How to Create WooCommerce Tiered Pricing

Do you want to create tiered pricing in WooCommerce?

Tiered pricing is one of the best strategies you can use in your store and generate more sales. It is an excellent way to increase your store’s income and encourage customers to spend more. 

A customer is encouraged to add more goods to his cart to improve his tier level for more benefits and savings while using tiered pricing.

It is one of the best strategies you can use in your store and generate more sales

So, In today’s article, I’ll explain how to create tiered pricing in WooCommerce with the help of Dynamic Pricing & Discount Rules plugin. 

What is Tiered Pricing in WooCommerce?

In eCommerce stores, tiered pricing requires a minimum order quantity before going on to the next tier. Each tier’s pricing only applies to the units purchased in that tier.

For example: 

  • 1-20 units cost $10 each
  • 21-50 units cost $7 each
  • 51 units and above cost $5 each

In the above example, when a user will purchase a number of units in the second tier for 21-50, the first 20 units will cost him $10 each, and the quantity between 21-50 will cost him $7 each unit. 

I’ll be using the Dynamic Pricing & Discount Rules plugin to set the tiered based discounts in WooCommerce. 

Note: To follow along with the process, I am assuming that you already have a product in your store. If you haven’t added any product to your store, then you can add it by navigating to the Products » Add New from your WordPress dashboard. 

1. Install and activate the Dynamic Pricing & Discount Rules Plugin

Note: You can skip this step if you have already installed and activated the Dynamic Pricing & Discount Rules plugin. 

To install the Dynamic Pricing & Discount Rules plugin, you will need to install the Woosuite Core plugin and activate it with the help of a license key. We have created a Quick Start Guide for you to figure out how to install and activate the Dynamic Pricing & Discount Rules plugin.

2. Edit the Product to Add Pricing Rule

The next step is to edit the product to create discounts based on the product quantity.

2.1. From the WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Products » All Products.

2.2. Now hover your mouse to the product for which you want to offer the tiered pricing discounts and click on the Edit button to edit the product. 

3. Add Pricing Rules

I’ll be creating the following rules:

  • 1-20 units cost $10 each
  • 21-50 units cost $7 each
  • 51 units and above cost $5 each

To set the tiered pricing discount rules, follow the following steps.

3.1. Scroll Down to the Product Data Section

On the Edit Product page, scroll down to the Product Data section.

3.2. Click on the Pricing Discount Rules Tab

Now click on the Pricing Discount Rules tab to add your tiered pricing discount rules. 

3.3. Add Pricing Group

Now click on the Add Pricing Group button. 

After that, you’ll see the pricing group options.

3.4. Select Tiered Pricing From Rule Processing Mode Dropdown

Now, from the Rule Processing Mode dropdown select the Tiered Pricing as the mode. 

3.5. Enter the Minimum and Maximum Quantity

Now enter the minimum and maximum quantity in the relative fields. 

Note: I have kept the rest of the settings as default to keep this tutorial simple. You can play around with them and set advanced rules. 

3.6. Select the Fixed Discount

Now select the Fixed Discount from the Type dropdown. 

3.7. Enter the Discount Amount

Now enter the amount you want to offer as a discount in the amount field. I’ll be offering a $10 Fixed Discount on 1-20 quantities.  

3.8. Add Two More Rules

Now click on the +(plus) button twice, to add 2 more rules. 

3.9. Enter the Quantity and Discount for Two New Rules

Fill up the rules as we did above. 

In the 2nd rule, I have set the minimum quantity as 21 and the maximum quantity as 50 at $7 for each unit.

While in the 3rd rule, I have set the minimum quantity as 51, and in the max quantity field I have entered * , which means any number of units greater than 51 will cost $5 each.

3.10. Update the Product

Now finally, scroll above and click on the Update button to update the product.

Final Results

Now let’s check the settings we made. To test it, go to the product page and you’ll see a table with the discount information. 

Now if I add 70 items to the cart, I’ll get the first 20 units at a cost of $10 each, the next 30 units will be at $7 each, and the units greater than 50 will be at $5 each. 

The first 20 units net $200, the next 30 units net $210, and the next 20 units net $100 so the total will be $510.
