We want to calculate the bulk buy discounts:

Using Nested IF

Some sales will qualify for 10% discount, some 5%, some none.

In cell E4, create a nested =IF that calculates the correct bulk buy discount percentage.  Use this to help you:

  • If quantity >=20 the customer should get 10%
  • If quantity >=10 the customer should get 5%
  • Anything less the customer should get no discount

Remember the nested =IF function has the following structure:

=IF(Condition1, True1, False1
is IF(Condition2, True2, False2))

Lower the order thresholds and change the discount percentages to check that your formula works:

Nested IF

When you lower the thresholds, a few more items get discounts.
