Spanish term or phrase: Descuento cuantitativo
I ran a search for "quantitative discount" and found quite a few examples. However, it seems a rather long-winded way to say "bulk/quantity discount"... so I look for a definition online and it redirects me to "quantity discount", which is what I would normally use. Basically, I just need to know if that is what it is, or if there is a difference. There is no useful context to go by, as it appears in an alphabetical list:

"...

Notes to answerer
Asker: So it's just the same as "descuento por volumen", which is the form I'm used to. I think the text may have been translated into Spanish from Italian, as some Italian phrases appear later in the list.
