Volume Discount Creation/Update/Removal

A volume discount is an adjustment to the price of a product based on the quantity of that product in an order. By offering volume discounts, sellers are able to reward those who purchase a multiple quantity of goods.

Newegg Marketplace volume discount is designed as a 3-tier calculation. Volume discount creation/adjustment can only be submitted with the following rules:

  • Purchase Quantity: Minimum Purchase Quantity (If any) ≤ tier-1 < tier-2 < tier-3
  • Price per Product: Regular Selling Price > tier-1 > tier-2 > tier-3
  • Shipping setting: tier-1 ≥ tier-2 ≥ tier-3

To specify volume discount for item A as following:

  • Purchase quantity from 2 to 4 units, the unit price is $10.00.
  • Purchase quantity from 5 to 9, the unit price is $8.00.
  • Purchase quantity from 10 and above, the unit price is $5.00.

Volume Discount Structure:

Examples of
Unacceptable Shipping Setting
1 2 $10.00 Default Default Default Free Default Free
2 5 $8.00 Default Default Free Default Free Default
3 10 $5.00 Default Free Free Default Default Free

Note:

  • Volume discount setting will not be available for customers if an ongoing promotion price is less than the 1st -tier unit price.
  • Only available for shipping destination as United States.
