We're thrilled to have officially released Promo Codes (Beta) to all Givebutter Events users this month. Read on to learn about how you can use promo codes for your next event, and also be sure to check out the many other updates and enhancements we've been making site-wide over at our What's New page and summarized below.

Promo Codes

If you've ever attended or sold tickets to an event, you're probably familiar with how promo codes work. Also sometimes called Discount Codes or Access Codes, Promo Codes enable an event organizer to offer discounts to attendees.

On Givebutter, you can now offer two types of discounts:

  1. Fixed - i.e. $10 off
  2. Percent - i.e. 10% off

You can then apply the code to any of your tickets:

  1. Apply to all tickets (default) - i.e. General Admission, Premium, and VIP
  2. Apply to certain tickets - i.e. ONLY General Admission

Set usage limits:

  1. Unlimited (default): code can be used an unlimited number of times
  2. Limited: code can only be used X number of times

Optionally add start & end dates, great for promotions like "Early Bird" discounts:

  1. Start Date: code becomes available after this date/time
  2. Expiration Date: code expires after this date/time

And last but not least, you can have unlimited uniquely named codes that can be set to active or inactive for any of your campaigns.

Promo codes work seamlessly with Givebutter's new Offline Donations features, so you can issue free or discounted tickets right from the dashboard.
