We are losing out on opportunities to recruit new members during the event registration process. Over half of event attendees for one of our current events are not members and yet if there was a screen during the registration process that asked them if they want to Join and pay for both event registration and membership application we would probably be able to secure their membership while they were in the moment..
Any comments/thoughts from the Wild Apricot Team?
Re your comment that you give seniors discount and doing this 'manually' - how do you actually offer the discount - is by a registration type or do they have to apply for a certain type of membership?
Out board wants to offer a pensioner discount across the full range of registration types and I'm trying to work out how best to apply this.
Manhy thanks in advance,
Just wondering if anyone could help me with a solution to this problem in my previous post re selling webinar subscriptions?
I'm being hassled to present a solution that involves paypal subscription payment solution but as this isn't integrated with Wild Apricot I'm at a bit of a loss and can't think of a work around that will still use Wild Apricot.
Would love to be able to present a solution - anyone have any suggestions?
The organisation I work for currently sells monthly webinar subscriptions with invoicing and payments currently being managed outside Wild Apricot.
Given Paypal will manage recurring payments, the Board were hoping they could easily bring webinar subscriptions into Wild apricot too but I can't see a way that this could be set up.
The pricing structure is such that by purchasing a 12 month subscription - charged monthly - they receive a discount on the 'pay per webinar' price.
Also, the process is automated so they can select which plan they want and then each month they are charged the fee automatically without anyone having to go in and 'click a button'...
it's only when someone wants to cancel their subscription that we manually have to log into the payment gateway and cancel the subscription.
Have you considered putting a link to the GoTo recording in the registration confirmation email?
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 :)
From a new WA customer looking for a few wins after spending a few hours hitting some brick walls!
We're new to Wild Apricot and reading this thread I'm thinking I'll have to vote for the event discounts set up as other people have suggested in line with most other ecommerce sites.
Our upcoming conference offers discounts for...
Early Bird Rego
Plus there are options for full registration for the 2 days, Day 1 only or day 2 only.
and combinations of the above.... so using unique registration types for all different combinations suggests we would need a huge number of registration types instead of just a couple then offering coupon codes to apply universal discounts to basic registration types.
If anyone had any suggestions on the best way to set up our conference registration types, it would be much appreciated!
