? Best way to add pricing levels for multiple products

I am building a store that offers some items in gallon containers. I need to be able to offer pricing discounts for certain amounts. I also have multiple products at different prices. For example if you by 1 gal of brand X the price is $10.00 if you buy 4 or more the price per gal is $9.00 and for 15 or more $8.00 etc. etc. While brands A B C.... will be more or less per gallon. What is the best suggestion to do this. I have Powerstore 2, Supersuite and Adobe Web Premium. Thanks so much for any help and suggestions you can give a rookie.

The idea with this type of quantity discount is to create a couple of columns for the cart and modify the total price calculation so that it reflects the discount. Here is a link to a very good entry by Ray that discuses this technique and the code for the calculated columns:

In this thread post 5 shows the break columns and how the calculation works.

Additional Pricing same Product

What about different sizes with different prices? Example: 1.7 oz. perfume for $45.00 and the same perfume in 3.4 oz. at $65.00. How would I add additional prices for the customer to choose from in the same item area?

You can do this part with the calculations also. You can create an adjusted price column that will vary dependent on the size of the item like this:

AdjPrice = ((abs([size] == "1.7") * 1) * (45)) + ((abs([size] == "3.4") * 1) * (65))

In the calculation above the abs() function is a mathematic operation that will return either a 1 or 0 based on weather the expression or condition is true (1) or false (0). So if you have a 1.7 ounce it will multiply 1 * 45 then add 0, if you have the other size this will be 0 and added to 65.

If you have these prices held in the database along with the size then you could also get the price to reflect the size by filtering a recordset based on the selected size, then in the add to cart server behavior you will reference this price column from the recordset instead of the value you have bound to this column already.
