We have created a new way to allow multi-event discounts, as well as a nice user experience that allows you to highlight the discount. Here is a simple example of giving a $10 discount if you sign up for both the 10K and the Half (although this can be used for lots of ideas like adding tickets for an After Party, etc.):
After the participant picks their first event, they get the following message and option to pick another event:
To set this up, first go to Financial – > Pricing -> Multi Event Pricing:
There are a number of options:
- Any combination of % and $ off.
- If you pick %, you can choose to have it be the % off the highest $ event or the lowest $ event.
- You can choose not to allow a giveaway for the additional event – this is great if you just have one shirt and that is part of the discount justification. Note that when a person signs up for multiple events, they will only be asked for add-ons once and it will be all add-ons available with any event.
- Turn off age-based pricing, or honor it.
Next, you can make the user experience like the above example by going to Race Page -> Misc Settings:
Make sure you pick the right option for displaying multi-event registration.
This setup also works very well for alternative types of events. In the following example, participants sign up for time slots. Instead of a maximum of 2 events, they are allowed three events (note you can change the word “Event” to anything else, like “Timeslot) under Misc Settings as well):
The setup for this shows how you can add different rules for
The display settings are on the Misc Setting page as before:
As you can see, this can be quite powerful in terms of setting up different options and rules. And there is a strong “Call to Action” that engages participants to sign up for more than just one event.
