To create a Special offer click on the Add special offer button in Discounts > Special offers.
Important! Promo codes and Special offers cannot be applied at the same time. If a Promo code is entered any applicable Special offers will be ignored when calculating the total price reduction.
Important! Only one Special offer can apply to a purchase. If there’s more than one applicable Special offer, the biggest price reduction is applied.
Give a name for your special offer, preferably something that tells people what the offer does, for example "Christmas sale 50% off". Next set the discount amount. It can be a percentage or a flat amount off the total value.
There are Advanced settings where you can add various rules for the Special offer.
- Valid from / Valid until - set a time limit for the special offer. The special offer won’t appear on your registration form outside of the set time frame. For example you can set a special offer that will only be available for the next 48 hours. This will generate some urgency in the people who were in two minds about registering and give them a gentle push towards making that purchase! Nice, eh?
- Number of uses allowed - limits the number of times the offer can be applied before disappearing from your registration form. Set it to 100 uses, for example, and put some information in the description of the Special offer that tells people only the first hundred registrations will get the discount.
- Applies to - a special offer can apply to all submission categories or to the ones you choose. Use this field to add and remove categories, or leave blank to make it available for all categories.
- Valid for min/max submissions - set limits to the number of submissions per registration that the special offer is applicable for. For example if you set 4 as a minimum the applicant will have to buy at least 4 or more submissions for the special offer to take effect.
- Valid for min/max value - same as above only the limit is for the value of a purchase. Set a maximum of 1000 USD and if the applicant is trying to register for 1200 USD worth of submissions the special offer will not apply!
