In X-Cart, you can configure fixed or percentage-based discounts using the Volume Discount feature. Volume Discounts do NOT require a discount code to be entered. They are automatically applied to orders meeting initially defined conditions. In particular, you can configure a Volume Discounts appliable to orders that match a minimum subtotal amount or for orders submitted by customers from a particular membership group. You can also set the discounts as a combination of the above-mentioned criteria.
In the following lines, we are going to guide you on how to create Volume Discounts and configure their conditions.
First off, please log in to your X-Cart Admin Area and navigate through the left-hand side menu bar to Discounts > Volume discounts.
Please note that the Volume Discounts feature is empowered by the Volume Discounts Addon. In case the Addon is not installed or disabled, you cannot configure your discounts. In such a scenario, please refer to our tutorial on How to install Addons (Modules) in X-Cart.
Creating a Volume Discount is an effortless task. First, please click on the "Add discount" button. Upon doing that a new row appears where you need to specify the discount conditions:
When ready, please click on the "Save changes" button, and your very first Volume Discount is going to be created.
Whenever an order meets the conditions required for the Volume Discount to be applied, it is displayed to customers in their Shopping Carts.
If the order subtotal is below the required subtotal minimum, a message is going to be displayed to customers informing them about the discount conditions. The general idea is to stimulate customers to purchase more items and consequently increase your sales.
Note that, in case the discount is configured for a specific Membership Level, the above message is going to be displayed only to member customers.
With this said and done, you have just learned how to manage customers' favorite aspects of shopping. We hope the topic discussed in this tutorial was helpful to you. In case you have any additional questions in regards to X-Cart, feel free to contact our Support Team.
