I’m pretty sure I’d like to purchase the wholesale pricing module from you. But I’m still trying to figure out the wholesale login portion…do I need the members module from instinct/getshopped for this or what? I sell a product retail as well as wholesale but no membership/subscription sales. please advise. thank you.August 9, 2010 at 4:26 pm #6698
Hi Charane, this is a standalone Plugin, Members from GetShopped.org is not required to allow custom pricing levels to members and/or custom User Roles within your WordPress site.August 11, 2010 at 10:21 am #6699
well, I definitely need the wholesale pricing & sounds like you’re the only that has it for wp-ecommerce…I’m glad it’s available. Thank you for creating it!
I’m a little unclear on the members/user roles…I don’t utilize the blog portion of my site much, but it sounds as if I can allow people to sign in, I guess to WordPress, then approve the wholesalers & they then can be redirected to the front-end of the store with the wholesale pricing appearing. Is that right?
Also, do you have somewhere you suggest for me to read up on the members/user roles? I would like to understand this a little better.
Thanks again.August 12, 2010 at 8:41 pm #6700
Hi Charane, you can do that with Custom User Roles – it’s a free Plugin for WordPress – and is covered in detail in my instructions for Wholesale Pricing. I wouldn’t recommend the Members Plugin from GetShopped.org for your needs as you are not offering subscription-based memberships.August 15, 2010 at 10:29 am #6701
i used both plugins & seems fine for now. But…
I actually did all the code editing indicated from your readme doc. hopefully it will work all the way through but I am already running into problems–the pricing isn’t working correctly, for example:
as a logged in wholesaler, the product I already had listed was $13.49 in dashboard, showed on products page=$20.74
logged out: dashboard $13.49, products pg =$26.98
it is supposed to be $13.49 retail, & $7.25 wholesale.
I assumed I would have to re-enter product price at wholesale in dashboard so it went like this:
logged in as wholesaler: dashboard=$7.25, products page=$11.15
logged out: dashboard=$7.25, products page=$14.50
sample shop markups in code somehow inaccurate…never just 1.0 for standard pricing
& I did .5375 for wholesalers to get the appropriate discount difference. This I noticed from my above example is how wholesale pricing was calculating: $7.25(from dashboard) * .5375=3.89+7.25=$11.15 wholesale

Hi Charane, you’ll need to adjust the discount; by default it’s set to 100% markup. If you get in contact I’ll step through it with you and put some documentation for this 🙂September 3, 2010 at 8:15 am #6703
I’ve contacting you several times about fixing this discount pricing issue with no response. Please respond. Thank you.September 3, 2010 at 2:17 pm #6704
Hi Charane, I’m powering through a backlog in e-mails, I’ll respond soon as I’m able.September 28, 2010 at 1:52 pm #6705gmarshParticipant
I think the problem is this line in the instructions:
$price = ($price * $shop_markup) + $price;
change it to
$price = ($price * $shop_markup);
the first way, you apply the discount, and then add the regular price on top of it, which explains the prices you were seeing.
$13.49 + $7.25 = $20.74
$13.49 + $13.49 = $26.98
Hope this helps.

Hi gmarsh, that’s correct. I’ll apply this patch in the next release.January 31, 2011 at 5:54 pm #6707
Hi guys, please update to the 1.3 release of Wholesale Pricing which no longer requires Plugin changes to WP e-Commerce.
