Creating a Coupon Code for Ticket Discounts

Subscribe to Syndicate

Using Theatre Manager, you can create Ticket Discount coupon codes.

You can create coupon codes for both ticket discounts and presale access. For more information on creating coupons for presale access, click here.

With Restricted Access Codes, here is an example of restricting the coupon to 10 coupons of 2 redemptions for a maximum of 20 tickets:

  1. on the availability tab if you set your Max Coupons to 10
  2. on the promotion tab set you set the max use per coupon to 2
  3. in the promotion conversion detail you set the maximum Uses to be 20 ( 20 tix max ).

The following occurs

  • If everyone only buys 2 tickets per order, the coupon will remain available for all 10 coupons available.
  • If someone buys 4, only two ticket will be affected by the coupon.
  • If you reach either the 10 coupon threshold or the max uses of 20 no more discounts will be offered.
