I have just downloaded and installed Magento and really want to test some of the things I need for myself. Unfortunately, the product is extremely slow and I can’t get the testing done in a reasonable amount of time (which is a major concern!). Here is a key scenario we need our website to handle:
One of the main products we sell is embroidery thread. Most thread brands have about a dozen major categories (rayon, polyester, cotton, metallic, etc). Within one of those categories, we have 500 different colors of thread in two different sizes. People buy based on color and will often mix the 1100 yard spools and the 5500 yard spools on a single order. We offer discounts based on the quantity of a certain size in a certain category within a certain brand. So, if a customer orders any combination of 1100 yard spools in Brand X Rayon thread as follows they get the discount:
1 to 15 spools are $4.20 each
16 to 30 spools are $4.05 each
31 or more spools are $3.95 each
Using the same colors in 5500 yard spools, they get the following discounts:
1 to 15 spools are $11.00 each
16 to 30 spools are $10.75 each
31 or more spools are $10.50 each
The thread has different prefixes based on the type and size. For instance, the 1100 yard spools might be RAR11-xxxx where xxxx is the color number. The 5500 yard spools might be RAR55-xxxx.
Can Magento handle this? Thanks for your help!
