    Conditional Pricing / Discounts with Paypal

    Asked by LC on January 22, 2012 at 08:52 AM


    We manage a baked goods website and want to add a form for customers to select their items and complete their purchase.


    Discounts are applied as customers increase the number of baked goods they order:

    1 Cake: $1.75

    3 Cakes: $5.00 (discount: $0.833333/cake or 4.76% total)  

    I currenly use Paypal to process orders.



    How do I build conditions into either the form or Paypal that will apply the appropriate discounts, depending on how many items are purchased, and what those items are?

    Add-on to the question above:

    Under "conditional", is there a way to create a rule that says:

    If "Product" field contains "Product Z" and "Quantity" is ">" x, but "<" y, then "Price" is equal to "Price - (%x * Price))" -->

    if 3 cakes are ordered it would look like: 5.25 - (.0476 * 5.25).

    Rounded to two decimal places would take it to $5.00

    Basically, can a rule be created that goes beyond hiding or showing a field?

    Instead, it would apply a percentage or $-amount discount to the Price field value, depending on the values a customer enters?
