How Do I Set Up Wholesale Discounts in My MiiDuu Store?

Setting up wholesale discounts is easy with any paid MiiDuu account! All you have to do is click on the blue Wholesale tab when adding or editing a product. Then just fill out the minimum quantity per order and the percentage of the price to be paid. If you give greater discounts for greater quantities, just click the "Add Wholesale Discount" and fill out the form again. For example, if you give a 5% discount on orders of 20 or more and 10% on orders of 50 or more, you would put 20 in the "Min Quantity" box and 95 in the percentage box. Then you would click "Add Wholesale Discount" and enter 50 in the new "Min Quantity" box and 90 in the percentage box. You can add as many wholesale discounts as you would like for each product, and the price is automatically adjusted when a customer adds the minimum quantity for a price point to their cart. If you are only offering specific wholesale discounts for a limited time, you can also select a date range for each discount.

How Do I Send Out a Newsletter?

Creating a newsletter is a great way to connect with your customers and remind them about your store so that they keep coming back. It's also a great way to let people know about any promotions you might have going on. MiiDuu paid accounts make sending newsletters easy! When your customers register an account with your store, MiiDuu automatically saves their e-mail address. When you select the "Marketing" tab and click on "Newsletter" you will first be asked who you would like to send the newletter to. You can select "All Customers", "All Newsletter Subscribers" or leave it blank. If you leave it blank, you can then create your own list by either searching for customers and adding them individually, or sending the newsletter only to customers who have purchased certain products in the past. If you would like to select your own customers, just search for their names and then select the ones you would like to add to the list and click the arrow to move them into the right hand box. If sending to customers who have purchased a certain product, select the category the product is in and then move the product into the right box.

Once you've created your customer list, all you have to do is think of a subject like for your newsletter (for example: Weekly Newsletter October 3rd-9th or All T-Shirts on Sale Now at T-Shirts and More!) and then write your message. You can style the message however you want using the tools provided above the text box, or you can click on "Source" and insert an HTML document to send out. Then just scroll back to the top of the page and click send! Your e-mail is automatically sent out to your previously e-mail list!
