Volume Pricing

Volume Pricing

Volume price discounts let you offer tiered discounts to buyers who purchase multiple quantities of a single item. This way you are rewarding your buyers for purchasing more by letting them have larger discounts.

The best part about Volume Pricing is that it is very easy. You can  set discount strategies for different groups of inventory or apply campaigns to individual listings, item IDs (max. 500 SKUs), categories, or across your entire inventory. We’ll automatically add new listings to your existing campaigns when they meet the rules you’ve set.
