What Is It?
Date-based pricing allows you to configure your forms to display different pricing options dependent upon the date that a user takes the form.
Date-based pricing can be used to provide early registration discounts, prorated membership dues, or limited time sales on merchandise in an order form.
Adding a Date-Based Price
To set-up date-based pricing, access your form list and click edit next to the form you want to set up the date based pricing. Once in the form under ‘Form Settings’ scroll down to Date-based Pricing.
You will be prompted to enter in a date-range (start date and end date).
Once you have entered in your date range, you will click Save. This will then take you back to the form. You will click ‘Edit’ to get into the Date-Based Pricing section.
Once here, you will see your pricing fields as rows. There will be a ‘Base Price’ column to the left.
There will be a drop-down just above this – ‘Click here to choose one or more member type’. From here, you will select a member type that this pricing will apply to clicking on it from the list and hitting ‘Add’.
This will populate a second column to the right. You will put in the price that this particular field will be during your selected date-range.
In my example below, I chose the Admin group from the member type drop-down. It populated a column to the right with the member type as the title of that column. The registration fee on my form here is regularly $10.00, which I can see listed as the Base Price. I am going to use my date-based pricing as a way to charge a late fee of $5. Thus, in my newly created box I will put in ‘15.00’.
If you want this date-based pricing to apply to everyone who takes the form, you will want to make sure you ‘Add’ all member types. You can add multiple to one column if the same pricing rules apply.
