If you are interested in restricting the quantity selection for your customers, check this box. You can also elect to set the quantity increment by typing a numerical value in the field. For example, if you require your customers to order 2 units at a time, you can enter in the number "2" in this field, and it will display the multiples of that number (2, 4, 6, 8, etc.). Note: restricting quantities will restrict the quantities to what you have defined in your pricing tab. For more information on pricing tab, see Pricing.

Maximum Quantity

Optional

If you don't want your customer to order more than X amount of any product, this is where you enter the value. If you have defined a maximum quantity, you will restrict all users who have access to order that product to be limited to that set value.

Unit of Measurement

Required

Liftoff has the following unit of measurements available:

  • Ea – Default, one unit (although one unit may have a quantity of more than 1)
  • M – 1000's
  • L – Lot
  • CT – Carton
  • PKG – Package
  • Box – Box
    By default, Ea is set. By changing this value, it affects the way your product is listed on the landing page and in customer's carts. It is also used for calculating pricing and shipping rates.

Pricing

As you can tell, our pricing tab is set up like an Excel spreadsheet. There are columns for SKU, Role, Quantity, Extended Price and Extended Cost. If you have variants, it is not required to add a row specifically for that variant unless there is a price difference from the default (i.e. specialty sizes or colors are a higher price).

  • SKU - This is where you choose the variant.

  • Role - If this variant should only be available to those in a certain role, select their role here.

  • Quantity - This is where you define the quantity in relation to cost. If you have a minimum quantity requirement, you will set that here. If you offer a discount when a customer orders X amount of a product, you will define here.

  • Extended Price - This is where you enter the total cost based on the quantity. For example, if a quantity of 1 cost $20 but a quantity of 10 drops to $18(each), you will enter the total amount for a quantity of 10 to be $180 and so on.

  • Extended Cost - This is where you enter the total cost to you based on the quantity. Just like the Extended Price, you must enter the total cost for the sum of each individual quantity.

  • Setup Fee - If your bundle requires a setup fee, you can enter it under the Setup Fee section below the pricing sheet.

Custom Fields

If you have defined custom fields for your products, this is where you will enter the relevant information. For more information on custom fields, please see Custom Product Fields.
