A Bit About Negative Discounts

A few questions have come up about how can you do negative discounts. (For the record, a negative discount would increase a price. e.g. – If you qualify, raise the price of Item X by 10%.)

The net is that Commerce Server doesn’t really support this. The better ways to accomplish this are:

  • Set all prices higher, and then have broad discounts for those that should receive the lower price (e.g. – 80% of customers might get the discount)
  • Also affect this through pricing rules in targeted virtual catalogs/catalog sets (e.g. – if you qualify, you get the virtual catalog with the higher price versus the lower price)

Hope this helps.
