How to Set Up a Tiered Pricing Table for WooCommerce
Now that you have some background about what the plugin offers, let’s dig into the step-by-step tutorial on how to set up the Tiered Pricing Table for WooCommerce plugin.
1. Install and Activate the Plugin on Your Store
To get started, you’ll want to install and activate the Tiered Pricing Table for WooCommerce plugin on the store where you want to add your tiered pricing rules.
As we mentioned above, the plugin comes in both a free version at WordPress.org as well as a premium version sold via the developer’s website or the WooCommerce extensions marketplace.
For this tutorial, we’re using the premium version on our store. However, all the basics will be the same for the free version at WordPress.org, so you can still follow along if you want to use the free version.
2. Configure the Plugin’s Default Settings
To help you control the pricing table behavior on your store, Tiered Pricing Table for WooCommerce comes with lots of different settings.
We recommend starting here before you configure your pricing rules. This will give you an idea of the different options that are available to you.
However, you also might want to circle back to these settings after setting up your first pricing rules (in the next step) so that you can fine-tune the behavior to your store’s needs.
That is, once you see how the plugin looks on your store, you might want to adjust settings again to tweak them to your needs.
To access the Tiered Pricing Table for WooCommerce plugin’s settings area, you can go to WooCommerce → Settings → Tiered Pricing.
The plugin divides its settings area into three tabs:
- General – control settings regarding the tiered pricing layout, what prices to display on the product page, cart and checkout page behavior, and more.
- Advanced – enable more advanced tiered pricing rules, such as role-based tiered pricing or coupons that offer tiered discounts.
- Integrations – enable integrations with some other popular WooCommerce plugins such as WooCommerce Product Addons, WooCommerce Currency Switcher (WOOCS), Elementor, and more.
The General tab houses most settings. However, many of the settings apply to the plugin’s frontend layout/behavior.
For that reason, you might want to also come back to this area after setting up your pricing rules. You can see how you like the layout/functionality with the default behavior and then adjust it using the settings.
The Advanced tab lets you enable/disable certain advanced features. We recommend disabling any features that you don’t plan to use to keep the plugin as lightweight as possible.
The Integrations tab lets you enable integrations with other plugins that you might be using. Again, we recommend disabling any integrations that you aren’t planning on using to keep the plugin as lightweight as possible.
Here’s a quick explanation of what the different integrations let you do:
3. Set Up Tiered Pricing Rules
The Tiered Pricing Table for WooCommerce plugin offers two broad ways to set up the pricing rules to use in your bulk pricing table:
- You can create global rules that apply to multiple products from a separate interface. You can apply these rules to all of your products, specific categories of products, or one or more individual products.
- You can set up rules at the individual product level from inside the product editor. You can also use this to override the global rules (if applicable). For example, you could set up one rule for products in a certain category but then use the product-level options to override that global rule for a specific product in the category.
Let’s go through how to set up both types of rules…
Create Global Tiered Pricing Rules for Multiple Products
To set up a global tiered pricing rule, you can go to WooCommerce → Pricing rules → Add Pricing Rule.
First, you’ll want to set up the conditions for when to use this pricing rule using the Rules setting box:
- Apply for categories – apply the rule to an entire category of products. You can select as many categories as needed.
- Apply for specific products – apply the rule to one or more products by searching for the product name.
Below that, you can set up the initial pricing using the Pricing box.
You can set up two pricing types (or leave the fields empty to not adjust the main price):
- Flat prices – this works well if all of the products have the same prices.
- Percentage discount – this is probably better if the products have different prices because it lets you adjust each price based on a percentage rule.
Below that, you can set up the tiered pricing rules using the Tiered Pricing box. You get the same two pricing types, but with the additional option to set up multiple quantity-based tiers.
Below that, you can also optionally set up a minimum order quantity or MOQ
And voila! After publishing the rule, all of the products in the “mug” category will have a tiered pricing table that looks something like this:
Set Up Tiered Pricing for an Individual Product
If you want to set up tiered pricing rules for an individual product, you can do so from the product editor interface.
To start, open the editor for the product for which you want to create tiered pricing.
You should see some new tiered pricing options in the General tab of the Product data box, as well as a new Tiered Pricing option in the sidebar of the box.
In the General tab, you can click the New tier button to add as many pricing tiers to this product as needed.
If you go to the Tiered Pricing tab, you can access some other options such as role-based pricing, minimum order quantities, and the layout.
Once you update the product, you’ll see the tiered pricing rules for just that product.
What About Tiered Pricing for Variable Products?
If you’re selling variable products, you can use the same approach to set up tiered pricing for WooCommerce product variations.
The only difference is that you’ll set up the tiered pricing rules from the Variations tab. You can use different tiered pricing rules for each variant of the product, or even exclude specific variations from having any tiered pricing.
4. Refine Tiered Pricing Behavior or Experiment With Different Layouts
At this point, you have a working tiered pricing table for WooCommerce.
However, it’s worth remembering that the plugin gives you plenty of settings to refine its behavior on your store. Again, you can access these by going to WooCommerce → Settings → Tiered Pricing.
We recommend looking at how your store’s tiered pricing works across the complete customer journey:
- How to list prices on the shop page.
- The pricing table on individual product pages.
- How tiered prices look in the shopping cart.
- How tiered prices look at checkout.
The plugin gives you settings to control all of these areas, so you’re free to adjust things if there’s any part of the process that you want to tweak.
For example, instead of showing a tiered pricing table on the single product page, you could use a block layout instead.
