For your wholesale customers, you can declare the cart subtotal discount percentage you wish to provide once the cart subtotal amount reaches what you set in the Plugin Set Up.

Luckily, in the brand new concept ‘Cart Subtotal Based Discounts’ with the Plugin Wholesale Prices Premium, it’s easy to set different cart subtotal based discounts according to the Wholesale User Roles.

As there is an option to set prices by user roles using the same plugin, here with the new feature, you can set cart subtotal discounts by user roles as well.

No matter how many different groups of wholesale customer user roles you already had, you still can provide different sets of cart subtotal based discounts to the user roles from different groups.
