When creating a new discount you will now see a new "Quantity discounts" section with a checkbox to tick. Ticking the box will reveal an additional field that allows you to set the minimum quantity of line items required in the shopper's basket to trigger the discount. EventHQ will use this quantity in combination with the eligible tickets/extras indicated in the "Place restrictions on the discount" section to decide if a basket is eligible for a quantity discount or not.
Enough of the theory - lets see some examples!
Example 1: you create a quantity discount that requires 2 tickets to be present in the basket and is restricted to a primary ticket called "3 day pass" which can only be selected once by each attendee.
One attendee in the order with the 3 day pass primary ticket will not be eligible for this discount;
Two attendees in the order both with the 3 day pass primary ticket will be eligible for the discount;
Two attendees in the order only one of whom has the 3 day pass primary ticket will not be eligible for this discount;
Example 2: you create a quantity discount that requires 3 tickets to be present in the basket and is restricted to an optional extra called "Finishers mug" which each attendee can purchase up to 5 of
One attendee in the order with 4 of the finishers mug selected will not be eligible for the discount
Three attendees in the order each with one of the finishers mug will not be eligible for the discount
One attendee with 5 of the finishers mug selected will be eligible for the discount
Two attendees with 5 of the finishers mug between them will be eligible for the discount
When a discount is applied, the value indicated in the discount gets deducted from every eligible attendee in the order. When an attendee is modified (e.g. edited, deleted, cancelled) then the quantity discounts are reassessed and if the attendees in the order no longer qualify for the discount then it is removed.
You can run promotions on materials and merchandise like "buy two get the third half-price" via EventHQ by applying quantity discounts to optional extras where you have enabled one attendee to purchase multiples of that optional extra.
