    Default latu's Volume Discount Module - Display Price Table in PROD & CTGY

    Hello - I have latu's Volume Discount Pricing v5 and cannot figure out how to display the discounted prices in a table.

    I am currently using the module to discount the base price of products in a category by a fixed $ amount based on total quantity.

    I want the table to look something like this:
    Prod A
    Volume Price
    Qty Each
    1 - 10 $20.00
    11 -20 $19.00


    Prod B
    Volume Price
    Qty Each
    1 - 10 $23.00
    11 -20 $22.00

    If the customer wants 10 of each product in the same category they pay the combined qty 20 price of $19.00 for Prod A & $22.00 for Prod B - a discount of $1.00 each.

    The module is working and the prices are discounting correctly when added to the cart.

    Now I need to set up a Table to list the Volume Prices on the Product Display and Category pages. Can anyone help with this?

    --- or is there another module that is already capable of does this???

    Unfortunately, I have not had any luck with contacting Latu directly.

    Thank you!

    Unfortunately, I have not had any luck with contacting Latu directly.
    Unfortuantely, I don't think their moduels are "supported" any more. Don't quote me on this, but if it is urgent, I just don't want you to be waiting for a train that might not be coming...

    It may be that using an alternative module, such as the emporiumplus.com volume pricing module might end up being your best solution.

    Hopefully someone can weigh in either way whether support is still being offered for the Latu modules, and if so, how quick the response time is.

    Hope this helps.

    Why not just make a table and put the code in a custom category field. Then show that field on the category screen and in each of the products' screens in that category.

    I have a category discounting module that shows the table automatically, but it is a percent discounting module, not a fixed amount off. I do have a category fixed amount off, but it does not include a table.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Bill - sorry, I am new to this...I do not even know where to begin as far is placing "code" into a custom field.

    I know how to manually create a table to display pricing but when we make a price change to any product or discount amount, I will have to also remember to change the all the tables for each product. Is this what you are suggesting I do?

    Here is a link to the Latu website listing the suggested code and available tokens:

    I appreciate all feedback...and if there is a module that can do what I need, I am all for it!
    ...Discount the base price of products in a category by a fixed $ amount based on total quantity of all products ordered in that category.

    Thanks!
