I made a .phtml block which should display the lowest price by the parameter sku

{{block type="core/template" sku="theproductsku" template="getlowestprice.phtml"}}

and the getlowestprice.phtml looks like this

$_product = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->loadByAttribute('sku',$this->sku);

While getting price works just fine, getting the tier price like I used in product view doesnt work:

$prices = $this->getTierPrices($_product);

($prices equals NULL)

Is there any workaround to get tier prices outside product view?

$custom = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->loadByAttribute('sku',$this->sku); var_dump($custom->getTierPrice());

To simply get all the tier prices you could try the following:

$prices = $product->getFormatedTierPrice();

The reason your call for $this->getTierPrices($_product); is not working is because your block it not of a type that extends Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_Abstract which contains this getTierPrices function.

What you could do would be to use this function would be to make your own block that extends this and then use that instead of core/template


Create your own custom block

$_tierPricing = $this->getLayout()->createBlock(
        'product_id' => $yourproductId

<?php echo $_tierPricing->getTierPriceHtml();?>
