New discount code option for free persons

Posted on Updated on

The WebReserv booking system has been enhanced with a new feature that makes it easier to create discount codes for one or more free persons. The “free persons” option makes it easier to set up discount codes for Groupon, Living Social and similar type of deals as well as regular discount codes given to customers. The “free persons” discount option is great for tour companies and other companies that generally offers discounts or deals for additional persons.

To create a discount code for one or more free persons, go to Setup – Discount Codes and click Add discount code. In the type field, select either single use (for Groupon codes, Living Social codes and similar) or multi-use (for most other discount codes).

Under Discount Type select Free Persons and enter either a total number of persons or enter a number of each type (adults, children etc.).

When customers make a reservation with a discount code for free persons, the system will automatically deduct the number of persons as specified in the discount code.

The WebReserv booking system allows you to restrict discount codes, including groupon and living social deals, to only be valid on certain days and times. To add a restriction to a discount code, go to Setup – Discount Codes and click on the discount code you want to modify.

Scroll to the time restriction section shown below and specify the day(s) the discount code is valid for and optionally the time(s) the discount code is valid for.

Configuring your booking calendar for Groupon and other discount codes

Posted on Updated on

The webreserv booking system now allows for both multi-use and single-use discount codes.

Multi-use discount codes can be used multiple times. I.e. you can create a discount code called SUMMER2011 and advertise this discount code on your website to all your customers.

Single-use discount codes can only be used once. When you create the discount code, you can upload a list of valid codes, such as SUMMER0001, SUMMER0002, SUMMER0003 etc. Whenever a discount code is used in a reservation, it is marked as being used and cannot be used again. The single-use discount code works well with Groupon, Living Social and other coupon sites.

Configuring per person and per unit discount codes

Posted on Updated on

The WebReserv booking system now supports per person and per unit discount codes. This feature can be used to create even more discount code options for your guests/customers.

By default, a discount code is for an entire reservation, regardless of the number of people or units for the reservation. With the new discount code feature, you can create a discount code that gives a $5 per person.

To modify your discount code rules, log on to your account and go to Setup – Discount codes.
