The widget configuration can be accessed from Admin > Widget Configuration, once your event has been created in Engage and the option to Create a Widget is ticked:
Click the Event type to see your existing event widgets with the option to edit any of these and open the configuration:
Select Discounts from the configuration options on the left-hand side.
Discounts allow you to set up specific discount codes that can be given to contacts to get a reduced price or special offer on the event cost.
These can be used for priced RSVP events or ticketed events.
Click Create Discount to set up a new code:
This is where you can type the code that your contacts will need to be given and enter it on the event widget. Click Generate to populate a computer-generated code.
For example, GET25OFF could be used for a 25% discount.
There are two options for your discount code:
Percentage- Set a percent that the contact gets discounted off the total amount they are paying. This will be applied to the whole event amount, regardless if they purchase 1 or 10 tickets. The discount will not be applied to any additional donation.
Fixed Amount- This will deduct a fixed amount from the event total amount. This will be the same fixed price regardless of the number of tickets being bought and the total amount.
|This is where you set the percentage amount or fixed amount to be deducted for this discount code.|
This will default to today's date but can be changed to set when this discount code is available to be used from.
This can be ticked to also set an end date when the discount code is no longer valid. This is useful for short-term discounts such as an early bird price.
|Tick this box to activate your discount code and it will be available on your event widget. Any discount code can be edited and unticked to remove it as active on your widget.|
|Click Save to save your discount code settings. Clear will clear the form of all settings.|
Once your discount code is saved a Summary will be displayed on the right-hand side as shown below. This shows the discount code, the discount being given, and how many times it has been used.
There will also be the option to delete this discount code if required.
The details can be edited and saved to update this at any time.
When your discount code is active it will be displayed on the widget as shown below:
The contact will see the total amount due and the revised discounted total they will need to pay.
