Ok, let’s see more details.
The products I have are:

– Metallic taps

And I want to charge them in the following manner :

For metallic tap:

  • 1-20 quantity charged at $20 (only bulk purchases allowed at the shop).
  • 21-1000 quantity are charged $30.
  • Beyond 1000 – not allowed.

For Plastic tap:

  • 1-20 cost $10
  • 21-10000 cost $15
  • Beyond 1000 – not allowed

And for the Porcelain one:

  • 1-20 cost $12
  • 21-10000 cost $40
  • Beyond 1000 – not allowed

How to achieve this? Very simple! Just follow the rules as shown below [NOTE: Check the text below each rule that will give you an idea of how to frame the rule.
