Product: Business Cards using Grid Pricing

Aaron Aldrich Updated by Aaron Aldrich

Learn step-by-step how to build a business card product with Grid Pricing

Business cards are a great example of grid based pricing. They come in many different options, quantities, and stocks.

Business cards are simple products and they are perfect for learning how grid pricing works within shopVOX.

Most shopVOX users will outsource them to a trade printer like 4over or GotPrint.

The following videos will walk you through the best ways to create products in your account using the grid pricing type.

Whoa - wait a minute - I don't sell business cards, you say.  That's ok - you should still go through this example. The lessons can be applied to any other products that you do sell.  Be sure to watch the video lessons in order - because they build on each other.

Creating the product

  1. Step 1: Create your business card product using a 1D Grid

  2. Step 2: Build in the choice of sides using a 2D Grid

  3. Step 3: Add the different stocks using a 3D Grid

And you are done! Easy, right?

Adding a discount

Feeling good? You've got the basics down - now let's add a discount to entice our customer to order more sets of business cards at a time.

Here is the discount structure we're going to create for our business cards.

If your customer orders 5 sets of business cards for their employees - we'll give them 10% off each set.  If your customer orders 11 sets of business cards - we'll give them 20% off each set.

Discount Structure

5-10 sets - 10% Off 

11-20 sets - 20% Off 

21-30 sets - 30% Off 

31+ sets - 40% Off
