HI! I am a newbie and so far is impressed by the capability of Magento. (I am sure that I am not the first one to say it).
Currently, I would like to know if I am able to configure or customize for the requirement of “group buy discount” concept. If yes, would anyone kindly provide me some direction or previous posted thread for next step.
Here is what I would like to achieve:
(1) The “group buy discount” promotion allows customer to enjoy a greater discount when more people buy the same item before a promotion end date.
(2) The promotion mechanism would be:
Step #1: set a different level of discount prior the promotion.
* 10 USD as regular price
* 9.50 USD if more than 3 people buy
* 8:50 USD if more than 5 people buy
* 7:00 USD if more than 10 people buy
Step #2: charge/bill the customer based on the price where they are qualified for.
(1) Based on the current documentation and message post, it seems that the group tier price function would not fulfill the requirement because the “discount price” is unknown until the end of the promotion due date. Moreover, it is hard to assign group tier code as the customer may be first time buyer.
(2) Group Buy concept is very popular here in Taiwan, especially now with the economy situation.
Once again, thank you for those people who are taking the time to read this post! If you have any thoughts or comment or solution, please don’t hesitate to reply to this post! Thank you
