    Vendr questions

    Hi, We're looking for an ecommerce solution for a migration we're planning of an old site to an Umbraco cloud V8 site. In today's state we run a WordPress installation with WooCommerce so I'm trying to find the right fit for us.

    My questions:

    First: Does Vendr support bulk discount pricing tiers for a product? For example:

    Quantity Price
    1-49 $2.89

    50-99 $2.81

    100-249 $2.13

    250-499 $1.76

    500+ $1.22

    Second: Can we define related products? For example most of our products are printed and some are basic and some are imprinted with the client's name and they have a different pricing/bulk discount schedule when imprinted. If you check a box for imprinted, it'll flop you to the imprinted product. It might be easier to understand with an example:

    Third: Is there any import capability of product information or defined path to go from WooCommerce to Vendr? I can definitely do product export via .CSV from our legacy system for example.

    Fourth: Is a payment gateway required? Or can we simply generate an email of an order that goes to our service team? In our current model we have these requests go into a service team who then works on fulfillment/payment by reaching out to the client. I do believe they want to change that dynamic in time but we did not want to go there in WordPress/WooCommerce when that shop was originally built.

    Thanks, Matt

    Hey Matt,

    So sorry, I've only just realized I missed this post. Not sure if you are still evaluating Vendr so I'll drop some answers below, but regardless I do apologies for not getting back to you.

    1) You should be able to achieve this with the discounts mechanism creating quantity based discount rules to reduce the unit price by a specific amount. I have been pondering a nicer way of doing "bulk pricing" though as I don't think the discounts approach is ideal here. It would be nicer if this could be controlled at the product level so when you are entering a price you could define a price break at a certain quantity. As I say though, this isn't available atm so the discounts would be the only way to achieve this.

    2) You could probably achieve that in a few different ways. You could do related products using a MNTP to pick related product items then code your front end to switch between the products based on a selection. Another approach could be to store "imprinted" or whatever as a property on the order line then do another discount rule to reduce the price by a set amount if this value is present. I think the MNTP approach might be more correct here though.

    3) Not that comes with Vendr, but as Vendr products are Umbraco nodes you may be able to use something like CmsImport to achieve this.

    4) I think for this you could use the Invoice payment provider. The purpose of this payment provider is to essentially let an order pass through and assume you'll handle payment in some other external system. You are then able to come back into Vendr to update the order to say payment has been "captured". You can then use the events system to do things like check for a status change and send appropriate emails.

    I hope this helps answer your questions, but again, I'm sorry this took so long to get back to you.

    Hi Matt

    Is there any way to export products from Vendr to an XML document/feed? I require this for our marketing endeavors, by automatically exporting product data to the XML feed to be used in Facebook and Google shopping ads

    Kindest regards

    Hey Jose,

    Is this related to the original question? / are you working with the original poster? If not, can you ask your question in a new post please? Rather than on the end of someone else’s question. Just makes it easier for others to find answers that way.

    Many thanks
