Support » Plugin: Advanced Dynamic Pricing for WooCommerce » Prices bug when adding one or more product of same type to cart with discounts

    Hello,

    so I have this annoying bug that occurs when I add one or two or three or more items of same type in cart with a bulk discount.

    In admin I set bulk discount (Qty based on product) like this: 1 item has no discount, 2 items have 10% discount and 3 or more items have 20% discount.

    Just to clarify: the prices in the cart are alright. The problem is when I go to homepage after that product has been added to the cart, the price of that product is lower than it actually is. That might be annoying for some customers, because they would complain that the items in the cart have higher prices than the ones displayed on the homepage or in single-product page.

    Please check it yourself. Add 1 item, any item and then go back to homepage or in product page and you will see the price is lower than before… I don’t use any other plugin that would also set discounts, just yours.

    Please help :/

    Hello

    We add current product (qty=1) to existing cart to calculate discount.

    For example, we have 1 product in cart (price = 100).
    When user visit product page again, he sees price = 90 (2 products has -10%).

    Oooh I see, so your pluging basically shows the next price with discount if users adds more products. The idea isn’t bad, but it’s a little confusing.

    The suggestion is too maybe not change the prices in shop page or in product page and only show reduced price in your mini cart, cart page and checkout page. Because if someone will use quantity based discount they will surely point out on their site if you buy 3 or more products that the price will be lower and I think that changing price only in mini cart, cart and checkout is enough. The reason is that the customers won’t think that they will get even more discount for the changed price in shop and product page.

    Example: price changes from 100 to 80 in shop or product page when you add 3 products in cart, so now the price shown in shop or product page is 80. And site owners point out on their site that if you buy 3 or more products you get 20% discount. So the customer not knowing the price changed because they already added 3 products to cart, they will add 3 or more again thinking it will reduce even more. But the price obviously won’t change again.

    So to avoid that or to avoid misleading customers, I think it would be best to just show original prices in shop and product page and only show reduced prices in mini cart, cart and checkout page like they are shown now, which is really good, with original price crossed, discount price and how much money does that discount save you.

    What do you think?

    hi

    ok, I’ll add new setting to disable price modification at product page.
    but it will be OFF by default.

    Great! 😀

    To be optional would be the best solution yea. Because some people will want to use the plugin how it is now and some people wont. Thank you for understanding and making it better.

    Best regards.

    New option “Don’t modify product price at product page” added in version 1.6.0

    Great!

    I just tested it and it works nicely 🙂

    But I noticed the prices still change in shop page, for now it only doesn’t change them in product page. Could you also make it for shop page, so the prices also don’t change there? For the same reason as I above.

    Best regards

    hi

    We’ve already added separate checkbox for shop/category/tag pages.

    I’m sorry, but it will be part of pro version.
    thanks, Alex
