Help with discount codes

    Hello,

    Currently, I only ask for a 50% of a deposit on all of my packages that I offer for photography. For example, my Classic Sessions are $475.00 but the way my form is set up, I only ask my clients to pay $237.50 at the time of booking and then I send an invoice for the remaining balance the day of their session via PayPal.

    Every Black Friday, I offer 40% off all sessions and have to go in and manually change the price so that my clients are paying for the full cost of a session package minus 40%. This year, I would like to give out codes so that only certain clients can receive 40% off instead of being it a free for all. What is the best way for me to set up my forms so that 1. I do not have to change the price to reflect the entire package being 40% off and 2. I can give out a discount code to those who are to receive it so they can receive 40% the full price of a package?

    Thank you in advance

    Nicole

    Hello Nicole - Yes, the best way is to give them a discount code that automatically adjusts the pricing in your payment field. To find out more about coupon code, please refer to the guide below.

    I suggest you clone the form and then make a test coupon there before you can apply it to your live/main form.

    Thank you, though, I do not think this is helping with the solution I am seeking. I am knowledgeable on making it so coupons can be used. Please reread my post to get more details on what I need assistance with.


    Thanks again!

    You cannot do that with the current setup since you want to increase the price to full price and then discount it for 40%, and to do that with a coupon. That is not possible since the price is set to be $237.50. So my advice here is to create another product, the same as the one you have but with full price and you just enable/disable it when needed:

    And you enable/disable coupon as well for Black Friday only.

    Hope it helps.

    Thank you.
