Want some really unusual pricing methods? Often, we run into store owners that have pricing that is not consistent from one modifier to another. There are three scenarios where a sliding scale makes sense:
1) Pricing that changes depending on the number of items on the ticket. For example, if you offer a special where a customer buys one item and then gets the second at a discount. Buy one pizza and get the second half off is a great example of this.
2) X amount of toppings or flavors free. This works for those of you that price a pizza where the cheese, one topping, two topping and three topping prices are all the same. Or, if you offer a drink with up to two flavor shots for the same price.
3) Non-proportional pricing. If you have modifiers or ingredients that vary in price according to the number that are added, then this is a great way to tackle this. This pricing is very common in pizza where you might have a one topping pizza for $10, two topping is $12, three topping $12.50 and four topping $13.50.
With sliding scale pricing, you can specify pricing by the number of items ordered or by the number of ingredients or modifiers added.
