I want to have a web shop where products have tier pricing, such as:

  • order 3 save 10%
  • order 10 save 20%

This is easy by setting tier pricing in products.

However, I don't want tier pricing to apply when coupon codes are applied (discount would get too high). So I want a coupon code discount to be based on the base price (1 pcs price). Is there a way to do this?

Example: coupon code ABC123 gives 30% off. So price of items should then be 30% off max at any quantity.

There is no way to do this in standard Magento.

First off, coupons can be added after the product is added to cart (with the discount from tier pricing already in place). You will have to revert it to the original price. This will cause an issue: If the coupon discount is lower, I'll assume your customer wants to stick with tier price. Or do you want to let the customer choose?

Second, if ever the customer cancels the coupon, it should revert back to its tier price.

And what about when the coupon is added first? Should it display the tier pricing?

Overall it is a very sticky situation. I think I missed more scenarios, I'm just giving you an overview on what to think about if you really want to push it through. And it wouldn't be easy to do (at least for me)

  • Thanks for your answer! The desired behavior would be that buyer gets coupon OR tier discount automatically, whichever is better. Not both simultaneously. I haven't found a solution for this so far.
