This article discusses the Volume Discount option. In Short Volume Discounts gives a merchant the ability to define a list of products and quantities to create discounting tiers. The same products must be used in every tier. Volume discounts are only applied to the products in the list. Any other products they purchase from your catalog will not count for the discount. The discount can be in dollars or in percentages. Only 1 Volume discount can be attached to a Campaign But a number of different campaigns can use the same volume discount.
Once you build your volume discount it will be applied to all your new orders that meet the criteria you have defined in the volume discount. The Volume discount will NOT be applied to orders in existence at the time you built the discount. If an order changes the volume discounts will be rechecked to ensure the criteria is still met. If you use volume discounts you cannot use preserve price.
If a customer decides to force bill a single line item from the order - the volume discount will only apply if the single line has the quantity and products to entitle it to a volume discount. The rest of the order will be reevaluated for qualification to see if it is still eligible for volume discount. History notes will be added to the orders where the volume discount is applied

Underneath the Campaigns Tab – locate the Campaign or Campaigns that you would like to add the Volume Discount to

The Upper Quantity is the maximum number of items that can be purchased for this amount
The type allows you to select a flat dollar amount or a percentage.

If they order 9 of the selected products they would get 20% discount off of their order.
If they ordered 21 products from the list then they would get 25% off the order.
