Tiered Pricing

Tiered pricing can be added to any product in your price list that includes a quantity drop-down such as packages, composites, and regular product-quantity items. Tiered pricing is a useful marketing tool that incentivizes customers to purchase larger quantities in order to receive a price reduction once a tier has been met. Below are the types of tiered pricing options available for the products in your SimplePhoto price list:

Basic / Step Tier: (default) Each item's price is determined by the tier price. The maximum quantity shown in the drop-down is 25.

Graded Tier: When the quantity reaches a tier, the per-item price for all items is the tier price. The maximum quantity shown in the drop-down is 25.

Threshold Tier: When the quantity reaches a tier, the total item price is the tier price. Customers will only be able to select the quantities specified.

To enable Tiered Pricing for an existing product inside a price list:

  1. Click Edit Product next to the product.
  2. Click Switch to Tiered Pricing under the Retail Price field.
  3. Enter a Quantity and Price in the respective fields.
  4. Select the Pricing Tier Type from the drop-down.
  5. Click Update.

Below are examples of each type of tiered pricing:

Basic / Step Tier Pricing:

Example - Holiday Cards
  • First 4 cards = $3.50 per card.
  • All additional cards = $2.50 per card.

Graded Tier Pricing:

Example - Holiday Cards
  • $3.50 per card
  • Buy 5 or more & all cards = $2.50 per card
  • Buy 10 or more & all cards = $2.00 per card 

Threshold Tier Pricing:

Example #1 - Graduation Announcements

Some photographers may only want to offer sets of a product or a minimum order of a product. In that case, threshold pricing should be used. Only the predefined quantity amounts will appear in the drop-down.

Cards come in sets of 5.

  • 5 cards = $5.00 per card
  • 10 cards = $4.00 per card
  • 15 cards = $3.50 per card
  • 20 cards = $3.00 per card
  • 25 cards = $2.75 per card

Example #2 - Graduation Announcements

(Minimum 5 card purchase)

  • 5-24   = $3.50 per card
  • 25-49 = $2.85 per card
  • 50-74 = $1.95 per card
  • 75-99 = $1.65 per card
  • 100+  = $1.30 per card

Note: In this example, because the minimum purchase is five cards, threshold pricing would need to be used to require a quantity minimum. Instead of a range, pre-defined quantity amounts would need to be determined. This might look something similar to how we've divided up the quantities below.

Example #3 - Buy one for $10, get one half off
