Tutorial: How to build a tiered price component in HTML & CSS

Jul 24, 2022  •  @tiinyhost  •  5,000

A few weeks ago tiiny.host (a simple way to share your web project) launched a deal but presented it in a creative way.

A few asked how it was made so I wanted to break it down for others.

The original was created with react & bootstrap so I re-created it in pure HTML & CSS to breakdown it’s components. Feel free to use the component yourself if you like it ūüôā

The container is a simple, rounded rectangle with a white background featuring two child divs:

<div class="container">

  <div class="price-tiers-container">

    <!-- Prices tiers go here -->

  </div>

  <div class="features-container">

    <!-- Prices tiers go here -->

  </div>

</div>

Let’s look at the price tiers first. These contained three further divs wrapped by the price-tiers-container class.

In order to make the divs extend out of it’s parent container class we needed to apply the position: absolute for price-tiers-container. We also ensured it had a fixed width and used a flex layout to divide the space amongst the three price tiers.

The final class looked like this:

.price-tiers-container {
    display: flex;
    position: absolute;
    width: 530px;
}

Within this we have three price-tier divs with these styles:

.price-tier {
    flex: 3;
    display: flex;
    flex-direction: column;
    justify-content: space-between;
    background: white;
    border: solid 2px #c1c1c1;
    border-radius: 8px;
    margin-top: 10px;
    margin-left: 10px;
    padding: 12px;
}

Each price-tier is given a default equal width by setting flex of 3 (but the active one is flex: 4). We also use flex to align items within the price-tier div and space the items evenly using justify-content: space-between. Finally we apply some individual border, padding etc styles.

Within each price tier we just have three divs:

.title {
    color: grey;
}

.price {
    font-size: 1.5rem;
}

.price-period {
    font-size: 0.7rem;
}

.label {
    font-size: 0.8rem;
}

<div class="price-tier">

  <div class="title">

    Stage 2

  </div>

  <div class="price">

    <b>$99</b><span class="price-period"> / onetime</span>

  </div>

  <div class="label">Coming soon</div>

</div>

With the active price tier, the set up is slightly different:

.active {     border-color: blue;     flex: 4 !important;     height: 150px; } <div class="price-tier active">   <div class="p-title">     Stage 1   </div>   <div class="price">     <b>$59</b><span class="price-period"> / onetime</span>   </div>   <div class="progress-bar">     3/50 sold   </div> </div>

The active price-tier swaps out the label for a progress-bar and applies the active class as well. To make it more prominent we assign it a fixed height, override the default border-color and increase the flex to 4.

Additionally, we grey out the content in the non-active price-tiers like so:

.price-tier > div {     opacity: 0.4; } .active > div {     opacity: 1; }

Finally in order to make the progress bar in the active price tier we use a css-gradient trick:

.p-progress-bar {     background: linear-gradient(90deg, #2BC147 0%, #2BC147 15%, #575757 15%, #575757 100%);     color: white;     border-radius: 8px;     width: 100%;     font-size: 0.7rem; }

We set the background to 90 degree but set the green (#2BC147) at 0% and 15% and the the grey (#575757) at 15% and 100%. This gives the illusion of a progress bar. If we need to increase the progress then we just modify 15% to the new progress level.

Finally, we complete the features-container:

.features-container {     display: flex;     flex-wrap: wrap;     justify-content: center;     padding: 168px 12px 12px 12px;     align-content: space-evenly; } .feature::before {     content: '✅ '; } .feature {     margin: 3px;     font-size: 0.8rem; } <div class="features-container">   <div class="feature">This feature</div>   <div class="feature">And this</div>   <div class="feature">Great at this</div>   <div class="feature">Plus this feature</div> </div>

Here, we use a flex layout again and set align-content: space-evenly to evenly space the list of features within the container.

We apply large top padding of 168px to leave space for the pricing-tier-container. This is because it has position: absolute meaning it takes no space in parent div. In order for it to not overlap we reserve artificial space for it.

We apply a ::before selector to each feature and set the content to a tick emoji (you can use anything) to add ticks to each item.

And that’s it! Hope that was helpful, let me know if you have any questions in the comments.
