Discount on product when buying a minimum amount of it?

Hello,I was wondering if it is possible to create a discount when a customer buys a minimum amount of a certain product.We sell fabrics for example, so lets say we want to have a promo on fabric A: if you buy more than 1meter, you get 10% off. So if cmr buys 0.5m, the price is the same. If he buys 2m, he gets 10% off.Is there a way to set up a discount like this? Thank you in advance!
