I have searched for a week to find the specific solution to my problem maybe one of you can help! It would be very appreciated :)

I have some products with Tier Pricing that I added through the Magento Admin backend manually and it works beautifully. I am able to update those prices programmatically and the results are amazing!

However here is my problem. For products with no current tier prices I can't add them programmatically :( I have far too many products and variations to manually go and giev each product 6 tier prices.

Here is some example code: If I call var_dump($product->getData('tier_price')) on an item with one tier.

array(1) {
  array(7) {
    string(3) "403"
    string(1) "0"
    string(1) "0"
    string(2) "12"
    string(7) "84.2400"
    string(6) "1.0000"
    string(7) "84.2400"

I created a variable called $standardTierPrices which is: $standardTierPrices = array(); I realize it doesn't have ["price_id"] but how can I add that if it auto increments and starts whenever created? Even with me custom setting unique ['price_id'] it still doesn't work I tested it! I also tried without all_groups and website_price, still no cigar.

>$standardTierPrices[0] = array(
    "website_id"  => "0",
    "all_groups" => "0",
    "cust_group" => "8",
    "price" => "1950.0000",
    "price_qty" => "1.0000",
    "website_price" => "1950.0000"

Now I call


If I run $product->getData('tier_prices') I can see the attribute gets added but it is not updated in the Admin panel I want the tier prices to show in the admin panel not just the attributes. Here is a specific picture of what I want and what I get. https://i.sstatic.net/NWNSc.jpg

TLDR:: I want to programmatically create this for an item -> https://i.sstatic.net/t5QaN.jpg, a tier pricing in the Admin Panel

From a product that starts with no tier pricing.

I would try removing all_groups and website_price and using integers or floats unless you need strings for the prices. Try this:

$adminId = Mage::app()->getWebsite(false)->getDefaultGroup()->getDefaultStoreId();
            'cust_group' => 8,
            'price' => 1950,
            'price_qty' => 1,
            'website_id' => $adminId
            'cust_group' => 9,
            'price' => 1900,
            'price_qty' => 1,
            'website_id' => $adminId
  • Thanks for the quick response but still not working :( I took out all_groups and website_price it saves to the product's attribute ['tier_price'] still but doesn't show up in the Admin Magento section. Commented May 26, 2016 at 0:46
  • Can you provide more code samples, and/or test with with the smallest code possible to rule out other issues? Also, which version of Magento?

  • Sure Tyler! Magento ver. I'll update the question to have simpler examples :) Commented May 26, 2016 at 20:54

Awesome so I got it working! If any of you have questions leave them in the comments and I'll do my best to help you out too!

So I had to add a special variable

$standardTierPrices = array(); $adminId = Mage::app()->getWebsite(false)->getDefaultGroup()->getDefaultStoreId();

$standardTierPrices[0] = array( "website_id" => "$adminId", "cust_group" => "8", "price" => "1950.0000", "price_qty" => "1.0000", );

By using the admin ID it matched it and correctly added it to the backend and the Admin Panel.
