Currently, the standard Recharge app does not work with third-party quantity break apps such as Quantity Breaks or Volume & Tiered Discounts. Many quantity break apps create multiple duplicate variants to reflect the different quantity prices. This can interfere with the Recharge variants required to create subscription orders.
This guide provides alternative methods to quantity break apps if you would like to offer discounted pricing to customers who purchase multiple products.
Method 1 - Offer products in a bundle
- Recharge Checkout on Shopify
- Shopify Checkout Integration
By creating a series of bundles set at different prices, you can incentivize customers to buy in quantity groups at a discounted price from the standalone products. Bundles enable merchants on the Recharge Pro plan to build preset bundles to specify the products included or customizable bundles where customers select from a variety of product options to build their collection.
A preset bundle allows you to preselect the items for the discount. The single bundle product is added to the checkout and the customer receives the collection of preselected items included in the bundle at the bundle price.
With customizable bundles you select the products that can be added and set the bundle price at the amount you would like to charge for that group of products. The customer can then select their item options and recieves those items at one bundle price.
Method 2 - Offer quantity discounts as different products
In this example, you would build out three products as 4-item, 6-item, and 8-item boxes on your e-commerce platform. Then implement Ajax code to add the items to the cart or use line item properties to store the selected items within the product details. Each product would be priced to reflect the total cost based on the discount you want to offer.
Method 3 - Offer quantity discounts as variants
You can leverage product variants to offer quantity discounts. By creating variants that reflect the number of items, you can price the variants in your ecommerce platform to reflect the total cost based on the discount you want to offer.
