Hi... I'm excited to have stumbled upon your site/service. This may just be exactly what I have been looking for, but I have a quick question. I am seminar developer, and my chief products are live wellness seminars that I lead from time-to-time.
I have a basic PayPal account for my seminar business, and your service already has provided me with a feature I've been looking for -- the ability to offer potential clients a discount coupon, and have parameters set like expiration, etc.
My question, however, has to do with whether there's a way to establish different registration fees depending on when a person decides to sign-up for a seminar. For example, I usually offer an "early bird" registration window where, say, for a 2-week period of time, the fee is discounted. Or, more usually, if someone waits too late to register, I attach a late fee. How can I set this up via JotForm?
Thanks so much for your help!

What you can do is to show a discount code based on the date of registration:
1) Add a Date Time field, turn off the "Allow Time" option, and click on the gear icon to hide the field:
2) Click on Setup&Embed, Conditions, and select Show Hide a form field:
3) Set the condition:
So, in this way the person can enter the code to have the fee discounted, see my example form here. Hope this helps you, let us know if you have more questions.

(Yes, I did try to reply yesterday, so let's try it again.)
Thanks for your timely reply! I followed everything up to the last part where it looks like you’re able to Show the Add Coupon field as your condition. On my end, I’m not seeing that as a viable option; I set an option for adding a coupon code when I chose PayPal under Payment Tools – hence, the small box where a registrant could add a coupon isn’t showing up in the list of available fields for me to select that under the condition. I hope this makes sense.
This has actually led me to wonder about something else – probably not doable – is it possible to do something similar as far as the main product (e.g., in my case, a seminar) pricing goes? That is, could I set a condition whereby for a set period of time, there is a discounted price for the workshop that is automatic – no coupon or discount code needed – and then after that date, a different (higher) price is automatically set? What I’ve done for the moment as a workaround is to set a discounted price for everyone and put as my label “Seminar – Early Bird Registration (5/19 – 6/2)…followed by the price”. Absent a way to do this automatically, on 6/3, I will re-edit the payment section and put in regular pricing.
Anyway, thanks again for your patience. I *would* like to know how I can fix my issue with the coupon as I now have it.

There is no way to change the product price automatically. However, it is possible to create a special coupon for early bid registrations and set an expiration date for that coupon.
