Special handling of promo codes
Multisection registration. If multiple sections are purchased in the same registration:
- Each section will be considered a promo code "use"
- If the promo code has no max uses, every section will be discounted by the $ amount or % off
- If the promo code has max uses, the most expensive section(s) will be discounted sequentially, until max uses is reached
- The system will not allow any section to be more than 100% discounted
- No credit is given if the price of a section is less than the value of the promo code
Ticket based registrations. If multiple tickets are purchased in the same registration:
- Each registration is considered one promo code use, regardless of the number of tickets purchased
- Pomo codes now have a max tickets setting (default is 1 for old promo codes)
- Each ticket will be discounted up to the max tickets (by default only the first ticket will be discounted)
