Discounts let you reduce the cost of your event for attendees. Use early bird discounts, group discounts, or discount codes.

Check out this video to see how to use discounts or follow the steps below.

 

From the Discounts tab on the event page, select New Discount.

Enter the information necessary for the discount code to be activated.

discount code details
  1. Name the discount.
  2. Define the amount of money discounted from the price, based on percentage or a flat rate.
  3. Choose the type of discount you want to create. Each of these discounts works exclusively and cannot be created together.
  4. If the discount expires, choose when to allow it to expire.
  5. Select which attendee types have access to the discount.

Select Save to activate the discount code.

A percentage-based discount will deduct a percent of the total cost for each qualifying attendee, including the cost of any add ons. If you would rather not have the amount of the discount change based on add on selections, use a flat rate discount.

Discount Types

Each discount type works differently depending on what you need it to do, and they are mutually exclusive. You cannot create a code discount that is also a group discount, but you can create one of each and allow people to apply both discounts at registration.

In the case of a group registration, discounts not restricted to certain attendee types will be added to the whole registration. If you want a discount to only be applied to one person, you must register them individually.

Only one of each discount type can be added to a registration. If a second discount is entered, the system will give the greater of the two discounts.

Code

A popular way to give a discount is by giving a code. Enter the code you'd like to use, and when attendees use that code, they will receive the discount of the specified amount.

Group

Help out a large family or large group of people registering at one time by giving them a group discount.

group

Specify the size the group has to be to get the discount then determine if all attendees will get the discount or if only the registrations after the minimum amount will receive the discount.

Early Bird

Give discounts for early registrations! The Early Bird price will be listed on the event, even if it's FREE, with the original cost crossed out next to it until the expiration date. 

early bird

Early Bird discounts require an expiration date.

If you add an Early Bird discount after people have registered, the discount will not automatically apply to their registration.

There is no discount that will allow you to set a max amount a person can be charged. The max amount should be the price associated with the attendee type.
