    Hello,
    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Hello Michael,
    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

    /wpsc-includes/processing.functions.php
    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

    thank you,
    Charane

    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 🙂

    I’ve contacting you several times about fixing this discount pricing issue with no response. Please respond. Thank you.

    Hi Charane, I’m powering through a backlog in e-mails, I’ll respond soon as I’m able.

    Charane,
    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.
    Greg

    Hi gmarsh, that’s correct. I’ll apply this patch in the next release.

    Hi guys, please update to the 1.3 release of Wholesale Pricing which no longer requires Plugin changes to WP e-Commerce.
