Promo Codes let you provide discounts or special offers to your registrants. You can also use Access type Promo Codes to reveal hidden Tickets. Registrants simply enter their access or discount code, then click Apply.

Create Promo Codes

To create Promo Codes, click the Promote drop-down, then click Promo Codes. On the Promo Codes page, click the New Promo Code button, and choose whether to make a Discount Code, or an Access Code.

Screenshot showing the process just described.

⭐️ Keep in mind, you can't apply more than one code to a single Ticket. For example, you couldn't use an Access Code to reveal a ticket and then use a Discount Code to reduce the price of that same ticket.

Create a Discount Code

In the modal that appears, enter the Discount Code the attendee will enter in the Registration page.

Use the Assign to field to select which Ticket(s) the code can be used with.

Now, enter the Discount amount. You can choose between an explicit amount and a percentage. Lastly, enter the Use Limit that dictates how many times the code can be used, or leave it blank to allow infinite uses.

Click Save Changes when you're done.

Make an Access Code

In the modal that appears, enter the Access Code that reveals the hidden Ticket to the registrant, then select which Ticket(s) the code will apply to.

⭐️ Keep in mind, you can't select tickets in the Assign to field unless those tickets are hidden. To learn more about managing and hiding tickets, check out our Create Tickets article.

Manage codes
