Discount Codes, one of the three types of discounts offered by VETenrol, can be used with any registration. This includes both the Standard Registration for individuals and groups and Rapid Registrations with or without the cart. In addition, a discount code also has a choice of types that affect the way the discount will behave when applied to a registration. So, what should we expect to occur when each of the types of discount codes are used with the differing registration processes?
Expected behaviour for a Discount Code
For a discount that applies to any programme:
|Percentage OFF||Amount OFF||New Amount|
Reduces the total cost by the discount value (as a percentage).
|Reduces total cost by the discount value (as a dollar amount)||Replaces the total cost with the discount value.|
(One course only)
|Reduces the only course in the cart by the value (as a percentage).||Reduces the only course in the cart by the value (as a dollar amount).||Replaces the amount of the only course in the cart with the discount value (adjusting the total cost).|
|The discount value is applied (as a percentage) to each course in the cart.||The discount is applied (as a dollar amount) to the first course in cart, if any amount remains it will be applied to subsequent courses until the full discount value has been applied or the total reaches 0.||Not Applicable|
|Group Bookings||Reduces the cost per place by the discount value (as a percentage).||Reduces cost per place by the discount value (as a dollar amount)||Replaces the cost per place with the discount value.|
For a discount that applies to selected programmes:
- If the user is registering for one of the selected programmes, then the discount will be applied if they enter the code. This applies in all situations except the Shopping Cart with multiple courses.
- In the case of the Shopping Cart where there are multiple courses in the cart, the discount will be applied only to each course in the cart that matches the selected programmes for the discount.
Credit Card Discounts and Volume Breaks (Group Bookings only) work together with Discount codes for the standard registration process. It is possible for all three to be applied to relevant registrations simultaneously. Credit Card Discounts and Volume Breaks DO NOT apply to Rapid Registrations
