Discounts per Customer per Product

I have a client that has asked a daunting task - I think.

Currently they have a customer database, and those customers can be given a % discount rate that covers all products. (eg: A good customer could get 10% off every item while a business customer might get 25% of all items when logged in).

Now my client has determined that they don't want to give a blanket discount. Some products might be 10% off, other 25% off, etc... They would like this set on a "per customer > per product" level.

Is this even possible, or worth trying? To do this, I know that I need to create a many to many table that holds the customer ID, the Product ID and the discount rate. But I'm not sure how I would implement that into the cart system so the discounts apply.

yes, a linking table with productID and CustomerID would be needed.

you would need to edit the recordset used by the add to cart behavior for adding products to the cart to link the productDiscount table using a JOIN and filet it using the Customer ID. I think you would need a RIGHT to ensure that the product info is returned regardless of there being a match in the productCoupon table, but you may need to play with the join type.

in the eCart object, you would need a column for the productDiscountAmount and bind it to the column returned in the recordset.

on the calculations tab, crate a productDiscount calculation as:
([Price] * [productDiscountAmount]) * [Quantity]


on the discounts tab, create the discount as Number of Items > 0

Calculation:
Subtotal of column "productDiscount"
