Reduce charges based on field selection
For the membership fields, just as you have a radio button with extra charge, I would like to see a radio button and / or multiple choice with reduced charge. This would allow me to offer discounts to new members who meet certain criteria, such as being a member of similar association or chapter.
Could this please be merged with "Allow 0 and Negative Price in Extra Cost Items" - https://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/19709806-allow-0-and-negative-price-in-extra-cost-items?tracking_code=4a14a2a09553145b4a4e8606caf1f75a
And please consider the relatively modest resources needed to implement this, compared to higher priority requests for massive changes or new features.

This ties in to this issue. We are currently searching for new membership management software that is better able to handle members discounts and payments.

If we could use a negative currency in an extra charge calculation, we could customize our discounts.
We currently offer a discount for referring other members, and the more members you refer, the larger the discount. Currently, these have to be applied manually, and cannot be applied to recurring payments.
This is reason enough for us to look elsewhere for member management software.
This easy* change could solve a number of problems, especially if the price calculation were not shown for zero cost.
1) It would allow discounts - e.g., Number of attendees x cost, and then Number of members included in that x discount.
2) After a deadline, I want to switch from a prepay online price to a higher pay at the door price, but not generate an invoice. Setting the cost to 0 would do that, but the system won't let me.
* - (I know, Evgeny - nothing is easy. But this is easier than most requests.)
And if the cost amount could be zero, we could use this for the numeric-only field we need but don't have.

Simply allowing a negative currency amount would do it.
No updates. We will comment here when there will be some news

Any update on this? We could really use this as well.
Any updates on this? If we could have the negative amount as described in the original post, it could work well for us. I can't believe it's too complicated to code. Thanks, RC
Most definitely it woudl be useful. I thought it would be a good work around to apply our Pensioner discounts (I attempted using radio buttons with charge field with options being Pensioner Discount Full Conf: -$50; Pensioner Discount Day Rego: -$30; I am not a Pensioner: $0
This would have been an ideal solution and seemingly, with the right controls (eg can't make total due a negative amount etc etc), an easy fix for people looking to apply fixed discounts (Doesn't solve the % Discount which would be another handy option)
Looking forward to an update please :)

Would love to hear from others - would this be useful?
It would be very helpful to have the ability to specify a negative amount in the Radio buttons with extra cost" selection on the registration form.
I would use it as follows:
One of our upcoming events as registration types of:
$30 for event #1 - Non Members
$25 for event #1 - Members
$20 for event #2 - Non Members
$15 for event #2 - Members
Plus discounts of:
$10 if less than 18 years old (not validated in any way)
$5 for members of company X
It would require fewer registration types if I could just deduct the discounts from the basic member/non-member fees.
