Using Commerce Discount and Commerce Discount Extra modules there is no problem to set discount rule condition for product type and quantity. This way I can set up 20% off discount that is applied for a cart line item when this line item has specific product type and quantity more than one. 20% off discount is then calculated for this line item and multiplied by quantity.
However my need is to apply such discount not to each item from line item quantity, I simply want to exclude applying discount for one (first one) on the basis:
n is qty and
X is product base price.
The problem is that line item discount type in Commerce Discount module is calculating before quantity calculation (only for qty of 1) and proper price component is added to line item price.
Solution I've tried was to divide calculated discount
(0.2*X/n) but the result calculated for quatity 3 or 6 or 9 ... is inaccurate (wrong, decimal number).
Is there a hook or other solution that can allow me to "return" the part of discount that should not be applied - meaning 1 item? Or am I simply missing something and there is more natural way to achieve needed result? Maybe order discount rule?
