You can also run promotions on the purchase of memberships, gift cards, and packages. In the following example, we will show you how to create a promotion for the initial purchase of a membership.
Step 1: Marketing-Promotions-Create New Promotion
Step 2: In the general settings create the Promotion Name and the applicable information/restrictions. (See example below.)
Step 3: Click Next to the Criteria and Benefits section. You will select all qualified items to include memberships.
Step 4: Select the % or $ off as the benefit, and apply to each item in criteria up to 1 item. Don’t forget to click Save!
When the benefit is applied it will discount the initial purchase of the membership.
Please note: In most cases memberships are sold to new clients so a best practice is to make sure to set auto apply to no. That way it opens up the option to apply to new clients. Remember if auto apply is set to yes, it removes the option to apply to a new client. You will need to apply the discount manual from the discounts drop-down.
