By Date / Early Bird: These are discounts that are triggered by date or more commonly known as early birds.

Please enter: 

- Discount name: That will show up on the receipt

- Amount: In dollars or in percentage depending of what you select on the discount type

- Discount type: Screen Shot 2023-04-19 at 10.42.52 AM

- Date from and to: The time is based on the time zone of your event

Important note on setting up early bird discounts:

  • The Price before tax should be the total amount that a registrant will pay if they register at a time when they are not eligible for any discounts.
  • The Discount Amount (before tax) represents the reduction in the final price before tax. If someone registers during the discount period, they will pay the final price before tax minus the discount amount.

In the given example, the original price is $100. However, there is a $25 discount available between the specified dates of 2023-08-08. This means that if someone registers on 2023-08-08, they will only have to pay a total price of $75 ($100 - $25).

By Registration Quantity: These discounts are normally reserved for series registrations, but can be for registrations that have multiple dates that allow participation. Normally Interpodia uses these for a 'class structure' that wants a discount for registering for more than one session.
