Introduction

NeonCRM provides several ways to set up "early bird" pricing for an event. Early bird pricing typically means that you would like to offer discounted admission if constituents register for your event before a certain date.


Multiple Sets of Ticket Prices

The easiest way to set up early bird pricing is to create multiple sets of ticket prices - one set of early bird prices, and another set of regular prices.

To set up these prices, go to your event under Events > Event List and click on the event name.

On the event page, scroll down to the Ticket Prices section. In this example, we have already set up three regular ticket prices - Adult - 3rd Wave, Adult - 2nd Wave, and Adult - 1st Wave. These were set up by selecting New price.

We now want to set up our early bird prices. To do so, click New price.

On the Event Price screen, complete the required Name and Fee fields, as well as any other fields that you would like to complete. In our example, we want the early price to be available until November 1; then, the other prices will go into effect. To make sure that the early bird price will be available online, be sure that the This price is available to online registration box is checked.

Click Submit to complete your new price setup. This price will now appear in the Ticket Prices section.

Now, we need to make the non-early bird price(s) unavailable. To do so, click Edit next to a price. On the Event Price screen, uncheck the This price is available to online registration box.

 Repeat this step for every regular price. Now, only the early bird price(s) will display on your event registration form.

When your early bird pricing ends, edit your event prices to make the regular price(s) available for event registration and hide the early bird price(s).

Event Registration Discount

If your early bird pricing is a flat amount or discount off of any ticket price, you can set up an event discount to apply during a particular time period. A full guide on event discounts is available here. 

To create an event discount, go to System Settings > Home/Dashboard > Events > Registration Discounts.

On the Event Registration Discounts page, select New Discount under Event Registration Discounts.

Complete the Discount Start Date and Discount End Date to set the date range for your discount. At the bottom of the page, select if you would like your discount to be a price or percentage off. In this example, we are offering 20% off of any event registration before 12/1/2015 for the 2015 Save the Whales Symposium.

Click Save to complete your discount.

The discount will now be automatically applied to any ticket purchases both online and in the back-end of Neon. This is how the discount will display on your front-end forms.

Event Registration Coupon Code

If you would prefer to require your constituents to enter a code to receive early bird pricing, you can use event discounts to set up a coupon code. A full guide on event discounts is available here.

To create an event discount, go to System Settings > Home/Dashboard > Events > Registration Discounts.

2015-10-07_11-56-39.png

On the Event Registration Discounts page, select New Coupon Code.

2015-10-07_12-46-25.png

Complete the Coupon Code and Event fields, as well as any other fields. If you would like this code to only be available for an early bird period, be sure to complete the Effective Date From and Effective Date To fields. At the bottom of the page, select if you would like your discount to be a price or percentage off. In this example, we are offering $5 off of any registration for the Polar Plunge with the code BRRR.

A coupon code field will now become available when registering for this event both online and in the back-end of Neon.

Upon entering the code, the discount will be applied.
