Creating a Discount Code

To create a discount code Click on Discount Codes on the left side bar. Next, Click on the Create New Code button in the top right of the screen.

Or you can Click on the Plus Sign at the top right of the page.

In the new screen that pops up, you will set all your discount code details. Here you will enter a name or let the system auto create a name for your code.

Note
When naming a Discount Code you can not have any spaces or special characters.

After naming, you should write a short description of the code, determine the start/end date for your code’s availability and select discount type for your code.

Do you want your code to be:

Percent Off
A certain percent will be taken off of the current price set for the selected Activity or Activities.
Dollars Off
A certain amount of dollars will be taken off the current price of the selected Activity or Activities.
Fixed Price
The price you set here will be the price of the Activity regardless of the current Activity price.

Once the type of code is selected, enter the amount that will be taken off . Then determine the limit you want to set for the Discount Code. You can set a specific number of uses or you can select the set unlimited uses button to the right.

Using the Apply Limit on Per Event Basis

What it means: If you check this box you allow the discount code to be used to its limit at all Events that you selected for the code

Example: Not using Apply Limit on Per Event Basis
The limit on the discount code is set to 1 and there are 3 Events you allowed the code to be used for. This means the code can only be used 1 time on 1 of those 3 events.
Example: Using the Apply Limit on Per Event Basis
The limit on the discount code is set to 1 and there are 3 Events you allowed the code to be used for. This means the code can be used 1 time for each of the 3 Events.

Finally, Select the Activities you want the discount code to be used for and Click Save.

Creating a Bulk Code

Bulk Codes are useful when you need to use the same configuration multiple times. A good example is when you have multiple groups that need the same discount and want to give everyone a unique one use code.

To create a bulk code you will Check the Create Bulk Code box under the Code Name box. Once checked, you will have to enter how many of these codes you want to create.

This will create 10 discount codes with slightly different names.

The bulk code generates multiple codes with the same prefix for easy searching. For instance, a bulk code with the prefix ROOKIE might generate the following codes:

  • ROOKIE-01-rmns
  • ROOKIE-02-skuw
  • ROOKIE-03-spte

You can set usage limits to each bulk code at the bottom of the page where you would set limits to a regular discount code.

Example: This would create 10 codes with the same settings that could each be used 6 times.

EventDog Pro Tip
Once bulk codes are created the limit of uses can be altered per code if you needed.
