Use case: Early-bird tiers based on dates¶
Let’s say you run a conference that has the following pricing scheme:
12 to 6 months before the event: € 450
6 to 3 months before the event: € 550
closer than 3 months to the event: € 650
Of course, you could just set up one product and change its price at the given dates manually, but if you want to set this up automatically, here’s how:
Create three products (e.g. “super early bird”, “early bird”, “regular ticket”) with the respective prices and one shared quota of your total event capacity. Then, set the available from and available until configuration fields of the products to automatically turn them on and off based on the current date.
If you’re in an event series, this will likely not help you since these dates would need to be the same for all dates in your series. As an alternative, you can go to the “Dates” section of your event series, select one or more dates, and scroll down to the “product settings” section. Here, you can also define availability times for individual products just for this date individually.
