How To Set Up Tiered Price Promotions in Magento

Sometimes, it feels like Magento will not allow you to set up well-known promotions without needing to install some third party extension. We’ve been able to create a tiered promotions using the native Magento Shopping cart price rules, and allow customers to buy more (and save more!).

This promotion is similar to “buy more, save more” sales at your favorite department store. Lets say you want to set up the following sale:

  • If a customer spends less than $150, they save 15%
  • If a customers spends between $150 and $300, they save 20%
  • If a customer spends between $300 and $800, they save 25%
  • If a customer spends over $800, they save 30%

We’ve created this promotion to not use promotion or coupon codes; that way everyone can enjoy the savings.

Before you start, it is helpful to outline the price tiers, and their savings. Each price tier will require their own rule. In this example, we will create four shopping cart price rules.

Once you have outlines the promotion, log into your Magento dashboard, and go to Promotions > Shopping Cart Price Rules. Next, click on the orange [+ Add New Rule].

Set the rule name, description, status and customer groups as needed. Make sure for Coupon*, you select No Coupon

For the conditions, the rule should be:

If ALL of these conditions are TRUE:

Subtotal equals or less than 150.00

Magento Tiered Price Promotion | First Tier Conditions

 

For the actions, you want to apply percent of product price discount, where the discount amount is 15.

Make sure that for “Stop Further Rules Processing” you select “Yes.”

Click the orange [Save Rule] button to save the first price tier.

Now, we need to create the 2nd, 3rd and 4th price tiers.
