I am in the process of building a web store using yahoo site builder. Haven't had too many problems with layout,etc, but have one problem I can't seem to resolve. Have called and received different answers from yahoo tech - not much help. I am trying to build in incremental pricing for specific quantities, i.e. 1-10 items $20.00 per item; 11-20 items $10.00 per item, etc. The more items the price goes down per item. The program allows you to add to the pricing: Item A $10; Item A plus add on +5.00 = there by equaling $15 at checkout, but not for quantity pricing down. One tech said it could not be done, one said it could with HTML. Not being real familiary with HTML - not sure if it can be done or not. I tried adding a sub-page item with the lower price, but at checkout the default amount is 1 -- so if the quantity starts at - say - 10 -- it will still show up in the carat as 1 - too confusing for customer. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

This thread should probably be in a different section, but I would look at other options to Yahoo Site Builder. It does not create the best code, and depending on the number of products you have would not be the easiest to maintain.

I am assuming your web store is a Yahoo Store, and your plan was to use Store Tags on HTML pages you created in Site Builder, and as such, I would recommend that you visit the YStoreForums. It's specific to Yahoo Stores, and should have the help you need.
