I work for a county in-plant and we are in the process of setting up an online ordering system. This software gives us the ability to automatically give volume discount pricing at increments that we define. We are an all digital shop (no offset). We want to see if there is some consistency in the industry to follow, or if everyone makes up their own. The shop recently changed management, and the previous manager was here for 20+ years. He had only one discount which was at 5,000+ and it was only a 5% discount...seemed arbitrary. Here's my questions to everyone:
- What volume(s) do you give discount breaks at, and what is the percentage of the discount?
- How did you decide on what discounts to give?
- Are your volume discounts different depending on the product (ie - Business cards get XX discounts, Brochures get XX discounts, etc)
