What is a Discount?


A discount is a reduction in the price you charge for an event. Discounts can either be controlled by certain sets of rules (automatic discounts) or be applied by your staff directly (manual discounts.) You can also use a discount code, a manual discount that lets the customer enter a special code to get the discount. Discounts are typically either a percentage or a flat amount, although (with special permission) certain amounts may be changed at the time of application.
