  38 – WooCommerce – Setting prices for Quantity Discounts  
Enables customers to win discounts based on quantities of products, which includes multiples of single products | This was a frustration with our former WPE Commerce software, which didn’t re-calculate pricing for multiple-product orders | With WooCommerce, the pricing is set, not under “Products” but under WooCommerce Pricing Rules, with the advantage that you can apply the same rule to multiple products that differ primarily only in name |
Go to Dashboard > WooCommerce > Pricing & Discounts Managing Pricing Rules (this should be visible, but if not you need to Activate it under the Plugins) |
Depending on how your website was cloned, you may see some Pricing Rules pre-populated |
