We are trying to implement group registrations, more specifically group discounts, within our events. I know that there is a special pricing function within A/R Cash to facilitate quantity discounts with respect to billing for due’s. What I would like to do is implement the same idea but within an event. The trick is that I need to have the user tell the system how many people they would like to sign up. Once they have told imis this information, imis would then have to find a set of rules to figure out how much of a discount they are entitled to.
After some investigation, I tried to get creative to find a way around this problem. The best idea that I could come up with is to create functions within the event. Each function would reflect one quantity discount interval. For instance….
(Function 1) – Group registration: 1 – 2 people
(Function 2) – Group registration 2 – 4 people
Within each function I would then put in the particular discounted price for each function in the fee’s section. After that I would also enable the “Guest Function” and set the “Max registrants per registrant” to the upper level of my quantity discount. For example for Function 1 – Group registration: 1-2 the “Max registrants per registrant” would be 2.
This would work as long as the “guest” being selected would be linked to the 2nd participant who would be in our database. Our website is being updated so I can’t test this idea, but I am hoping that the guest can be selected by the user through a drop down menu that displays the roster of the particular organization.
What I’m asking is, has anyone tried to do special group pricing through an event before and if so how did they do it? If you have not before, does my logic make sense?
