Add Base Product
A base product price will need to be created on your store. We recommend that this price be a penny product (Priced at $0.01) and have the price adjusted and multiplied according to the Quantity Multiplier. This reduces the redundancy of creating X amount of base products over several different products.

Change values depending on the Possible Area Values (EG. 1 to 10000) located below the Price Breaks table.
Area Min and Area Max
These boxes are used to calculate the ranges of values that will determine the quantity break. When adding a new Price Break, you will need to set the Area Min to one increment larger then the previous Price Break be sure to add a value of one to the Area Max to get the Area Min for the new price break. See example below.
|Area Min||Area Max||Quantity Break|
You can use the Possible Area Values located below the Price Breaks table to assist in setting up the values.
Quantity Multiplier is how much to multiply the quantity by for a given area, for example, an Area of 1 - 80 can be 4 quantity multiplier, 81 - 200 can be 5 quantity multiplier.
The Quantity multiplier must be an integer. Decimals are not supported by the app as a multiplier, for a fraction of a product cannot be added to the cart.
The price charged will be the variant above's price * main product quantity * quantity multiplier * area.
Be sure that the Area Values are sequential between Price Breaks, this could cause issues with calculating the correct price.
