Bulk Import Prices with Quantity Breaks into Custom Pricing

Custom Pricing provides you with the flexibility of bulk importing your wholesale discounts along with Quantity Breaks through a spreadsheet file. Uploading this file bypasses having to set up the pricing discounts from within the app's admin.

Using the Shopify product export feature and a spreadsheet editing program (Excel, Google Sheets, etc.), you're able to set specific discounts for each of your price tiers and products.

This feature requires the premium version of Custom Pricing along with the Quantity Breaks module. Visit Custom Pricing: Information & Overview for more information on how to enable these modules.


If you are switching from the legacy standalone version of Quantity Breaks to Custom Pricing, the CSV file will need to be created from scratch, as there is currently no migration process from the legacy version of Quantity Breaks to Custom Pricing. For more information, please visit Switch from Quantity Breaks to Custom Pricing.




  • Before you begin, ensure that all store products have a SKU entered.
  • All products that have an associated quantity break need a QTY field in your import sheet with the break ranges specified.
  • You will need to be on the premium Custom Pricing plan with Quantity Breaks ($79.99/month) for this import to work correctly.
