One of the powerful features that Vend user should leverage on is the Pricebook. Pricebook make it easier for the shop to manage variable pricing without constantly changing the product price or the need to create multi-tiers pricing which require to monitor with extra efforts.
Pricebook is date sensitive where it become active within the dates window and deactivated automatically outside of the window. It can be associated with customer groups by having different level of discount between regular customer and VIP customers. Since Vend keep track of customer expenses, you can upgrade a regular customer to VIP once they meet the minimum spending amount accumulated over the time. This will certainly make your customer happy!
For this tutorial, we will focus on quantity discount on a product using pricebook. This will allow you to set different level of discount base on the purchase quantity.
