Discount codes can be used on any events that are set up to collect entry fees online through the Platform. The codes are specific to each event and can only be applied at the point of sale for the event that the code has been created for.
How to create a ‘Discount Code’:
Login (make sure you switch into the account that has access to the event)
Click ‘Event Admin’
Locate your event and click the settings button to access the admin panel of the event
Click ‘Discount Codes’
Click ‘Add Discount Code’
Create a discount code - all codes must be at least six characters long with no spaces
Complete the form to create your discount
Note: Whichever of the below options you use to configure your Discount Code, please be aware that the number of times it can be used will relate to the number of line items in the basket.
In other words, a basket with 3 items @ $100 each totalling $300 + 1 single $300 Discount Code will only remove ONE of the 3 items, leaving a remaining balance of $200.
To discount all line items it this example would require a Discount Code of $100 that can be used 3 times.
