German translation:Stufe, Klasse, Kategorie, Rang, Ebene
Explanation:
"tier" has different meanings in different contexts:

tiered interest rate = gestaffelter Zinssatz

three tiered structure = dreistufige Struktur

in the bottom tier = auf der untersten Ebene

It also depends on what "tier" refers to, e.g. to capital as in "tier 1 capital" = Eigenmittel der Klasse 1; "tier 2 capital" = Eigenmittel der Klasse 2

Last but not least "tiering" means Staffelung.

I hope this helps.

Rangordnung


Explanation:
"Rang" is one possible way of translating "tier" (Link), so I think "Rangordnung" would be okay here.

HTH,

Rasmus.
