There are two types of discounts on ActivityHero. Automatic discounts that are applied when certain requirements are met, and manual discounts that the business refunds back to the parent.
The Manual discounts in ActivityHero are Free Trial, Referral, and Other. When these discounts are created they will display on the activities chosen to notify parents. You determine if the participant qualifies for the discount, and then refund the participant for the amount of the discount.
The Automatic discounts on ActivityHero are Early Registration, Sibling, Multiple Session, and Promo Code.
Early Registration Discount
This discount will automatically apply to each registration before the expiration date.
This discount will check the parent’s ActivityHero account. If the parent is registering multiple family members from the same account, and if the activities take place before the sibling discount expiration date, they will be eligible for the sibling discount.
For sibling discounts, you'll need to make some selections.
- Minimum Number of siblings (Min. no. of siblings ):
If you set the minimum number of siblings to 1 the parent only needs to register 1 family member to redeem the discount, so every child registered will get the discount.
If the minimum number of siblings is 2 the parent needs to register at least 2 family members to redeem the discount.
Tip: Most Sibling discounts should set a minimum number of siblings to 2.
- Apply to:
Here you get to choose whether to exclude the initial sibling or apply to all siblings.
Choose "Exclude the initial sibling" only if sibling registered after the first child should have the discount applied. For example: "Sibling discount $20 off each additional family member that registers"
Choose “Apply to all siblings" if all family members should have the discount applied. For example: "If you sign up the whole family, each member receives $20 discount."
- Expiration date:
Here, set the date for when you'd like the discount to expire. An expiration date is required.
Multiple Session Discount
This discount will check the child’s registered sessions for your business, and check for the schedules that the discount is applied to. If the child registers for the minimum number of sessions, and the discount expiration date has not passed, the discount will be applied. This even applies to past schedules.
For multiple session discounts, you'll need to make some selections.
- Minimum number of sessions (Min Sessions):
This is how many sessions the child must be registered to apply the discount.
- Apply to:
You can choose to exclude the initial session or apply to all sessions.
Choose "Exclude the initial session" only if sessions registered after the first should have the discount applied. For example, "Multi-session discount- $20 off each additional session."
Choose "Apply to all sessions" if all sessions should have the discount applied. For example, "Sign up for all camps, and receive a $20 discount for each."
Tip: If you only want the Multiple Session discount to apply to specific activities or a season try creating a different discount for each case.
- Expiration date:
Choose an expiration date -- this is a required field. You can choose a date that works with your programming season. For example, if you want the discount to apply only during the spring semester, set the discount expiration date for early June. If you want the discount to align with the calendar year, and to apply to all sessions that occur between January-December, set the expiration date for December 31.
PROMO CODE DISCOUNT
When a Promo Code is added it will be applied to the whole cart at checkout. This means if the parent is registering for a single activity then the Promo Code will be applied to the single activity, but if the parent decides to purchase more than one at a time the Promo Code will be applied to each activity in the cart.
A schedule with a promo code will not show as a discount to the parent when they are looking for classes online. Since this is hidden from parents you can use it for special discounts, or to track it’s use. If you did want to give a Promo Code to a large group of parents, but only offer a set amount of uses, you can set a limit to the amount of uses to encourage registrations.
A parent will always have the option to add a promo code, but only valid codes will be applied. Here's what the parent's experience will look like:
