How to Bulkrate

  • sheepish Top 10 Forum Poster Tuesday, August 25, 2009 10:26 PM Reply
    We want it fixed! The extra tracking charge ($0.01) automatically drops off when the total dips below $15; I see no reason why the Bulkrate charge isn't removable even manually unless the cart is empty.

    Why is it when I add 4x sku15613 to my basket they are $5.45 but when Bulkrate is enabled the price increases to $6.52 ? the same applies to sku13404 $1.75 with bulkrate $1.77

    4x15613
    4x13404
    Total order without Bulkrate $28.81

    Total order with Bulkrate $29.37

    I thought the idea of Bulkrate was to offer a discount not to increase the cost!

    "I thought the idea of Bulkrate was to offer a discount not to increase the cost!"

    On every product page (emphasis added): While BulkRate's intention is to offer cheaper prices when you buy in bulk, because it is priced separately it on occassions show a higher than retail price. That's why we ask you to enter BULKRATE as a coupon code to manually activate the rates. You can always opt not to use the bulk rates.

    So yes, a discount is the idea, but it doesn't always work. I note that for sku.13404 it does work if you buy 4 (but not 3).

    As for sku.15613, there are already several threads for that product that discuss the problem of its bulkrate pricing. Please ignore VTGGMA linking to this thread, which does not address the issue that that product pricing has, and review the other advice in those threads.

    Sent an enquiry to Dealextreme 10 days ago asking why the pricing is wrong for sku 15613 (single $5.45each bulkrate $6.52each) have not had the courtesy of a reply, so have now bought from their competitors .....

    The Bulkrate problems seem to have been fixed. The Bulkrate prices are now used in the cart, without having the discounts totaled separately. I don't Bulkrate very often, obviously.

    Hi, I would like to purchase sku.47512 , well I want three of them. However I don't want all the same colours, sku.47516 and sku.47520 are the same model/price but different colours.

    How can I enable bulk rate on these three items, even tho they arn't the same SKU? thanks.

    You can enable Bulkrate just by clicking on "Enable BULKRATE Prices" but it won't give you any discount if you are only buying one of each item. It won't even give you tracked shipping because you'll get that anyway.
