Best practice re: trade discounts

Hi Drew, Just wondered how you would advise assigning discounts for trade customers. Currently I'm using a select (in member.html) to allocate a % discount to a member. However ultimately I would like the pricing shown in the front-end store to reflect this when the user is logged in so would I be better creating tags for discounts offered - i.e 10%, 20%, 30% and then tag the member accordingly?

Are you using the trade pricing on products?

I was planning to calculate the prices based on and assigned discount value e.g. 20% so that any user that had been allocated a 20% discount would then see the price with the discount applied when logged in. I though this might be achievable by tagging trade customers with their allocated discount. Happy to take advice though if you think this isn't going to work.

The answer is probably to create a promotion for the percentage and add it to the cart when it applies to the current user.

Thanks Drew, I take a look at doing it like that..
