What is Volume Discounts?

--Video Content Start--

Volume Discounts is a new eBay feature, available now to all eBay Store subscribers, providing tiered discounts to buyers. The discounts, set by you, are offered to buyers when purchasing 2, 3, or more items that you’ve chosen to opt-in to a Volume Discount campaign. You can set a campaign based on individual SKUs, item IDs, categories, or all of your inventory. You can also choose to set multiple campaigns to offer different tiered pricing for different items, or groupings of your inventory.

For example, if one item is priced at $10 and a buyer purchases multiple quantities of that item, they’ll receive a tiered discount; two for $8 each, or three for $6 each and so on.

The more they buy, the more they save! The discounts are set by you so you’re in complete control.

How to Begin

--Paragraph Start--

Getting started with Volume Discounts is easy and can be done in three simple steps:

1. Head to your Promotions Manager, and select ‘Volume pricing’ from the ‘Create a promotion’ dropdown.

 

 

2. Set your tier discounts and add the multi-quantity SKU or item IDs you’d like Volume Discount to be applied on.


Please note:

  • We’d recommend you group similarly priced items into individual campaigns to make sure that buyers receive a discount proportional to the amount they’re spending.
  • If you enter a duplicate ID, the duplicate will be removed. The duplicate will not be counted towards the total.

 

3. Set your discount period, click ‘Launch', and you’re good to go!

Managing Volume Discounts

On your Promotions dashboard, find the volume pricing that you want to manage, using the actions drop down you can Pause or View an active promotion, Resume, Delete or View a paused promotion or Delete an ended promotion.

When you Pause an Active promotion, the discount is no longer visible to buyers and will not be applied in cart. You can restart your promotion at any time by choosing Resume from the Action drop down.
 

You can View, but not edit, an Active volume pricing promotion to see the discount levels and the SKUs or Item IDs in the promotion:
