Manual for iStraxx quantity plugin for VirtueMart 2.

INSTALLATION

1. Install the plugin with the Joomla Extension Manager 2. Enable the plugin named iStraxx Quantity with the Plug-in Manager

HOW TO USE IT

1. Go in VirtueMart administration, choose the menu Products > Taxes and Calculations rules.

2. Create a new rule. At the bottom of the page, the new calculation options are displayed.

Amount Condition: When you use the min/max option or the table, then this field is usually empty. You can enter a value with "=" or % to define different modes.

"=" means that the rule is only used, when the ordered amount is exactly the entered one. For example =5 is valid only when the product quantity is 5.

"%" is used for a modulo. This means that every quantity dividable by the entered value is valid for the rule. For example use %6 to give a discount for "six packs".

When you use the min/max limit, then you can create a table. The overwrite value is used then.

EXAMPLE 1

===> what do you want to do?

Want a discount of 2% for each 6 packs

==> how to do it

1. Create a rule with "Type of Arithmetic Operation" = "Price modifier after tax"

2. Use as Math Operation "-%"

3. Use as Value 2

4. Amount Condition Modus= 6%

EXAMPLE 2

===> what do you want to do?

Want a discount of 2% for each 6 packs and quantity > 15 ==> how to do it 1. Create a rule with "Type of Arithmetic Operation" = "Price modifier after tax"

2. Use as Math Operation "-%"

3. Use as Value 2

4. Amount Condition Modus= 6%

5. set min to 15

When you use Amount Condition %5 and one row for the table with min=6 max=15 and no overwrite value, then only the quantities 10,15 are discounted by 2%.

Lets assume you set for the Amount Condition nothing and you add a table like this:

min = 5, max = 20, no overwrite value

min = 21, max = 50, overwrite value =5

min = 50, max = , overwrite value = 10

Then every quantity from 5-20 is discounted by 2% and from 21 to 50 discounted by 5% and more than 50 by 10%

Quantity rules working with the bill total will follow.
