    how to make discounts?

    I have a bookstore and I have clients that order frequently.

    I have price discounts for some titles that apply to all clients.

    I want to offer more discounts for frequent buyers.

    I do not know on what bases and how to calculate what
    discounts to offer and how often.

    can anyone with similar experience through me some advice?

    thanks in advance

    Can I ask a stupid question?

    Why do you want to give discounts to frequent buyers? If they are already buying frequently then they must be happy with the prices as they are. Don't offer too much without being asked for it

    Instead of giving them a discount on each purchase, once or twice a year (Christmas is always a good time) send them a store credit that shows how much you value their business.

    You'll get a much bigger bang for your buck this way.

    It's very simple, you just have to set the css text property of the original price to "text-decoration: line-through;"

    By offering discounta, you might even sell more. Have you thought of a point system? Give them a few points for every $100. And one point is equal to a certain amount?

    Or maybe some drawing? For every dollar they spend, they get one entry. And then eveyr three months you draw and they get a $10.00 certificate or whatever you can afford to give back to your loyal customer
