Use case: Group discounts

Often times, you want to give discounts for whole groups attending your event.

Automatic discounts

pretix can automatically grant discounts if a certain condition is met, such as a specific group size. To set this up, head to Products, Discounts in the event navigation and Create a new discount. You can choose a name so you can later find this again. You can also optionally restrict the discount to a specific time frame or a specific sales channel.

Next, either select Apply to all products or create a selection of products that are eligible for the discount.

For a percentual group discount similar to “if you buy at least 5 tickets, you get 20 percent off”, set Minimum number of matching products to “5” and Percentual discount on matching products to “20.00”.

For a buy-X-get-Y discount, e.g. “if you buy 5 tickets, you get one free”, set Minimum number of matching products to “5”, Percentual discount on matching products to “100.00”, and Apply discount only to this number of matching products to “1”.

Fixed group packages

If you want to sell group tickets in fixed sizes, e.g. a table of eight at your gala dinner, you can use product bundles. Assuming you already set up a ticket for admission of single persons, you then set up a second product Table (8 persons) with a discounted full price. Then, head to the Bundled products tab of that product and add one bundle configuration to include the single admission product eight times. Next, create an unlimited quota mapped to the new product.

This way, the purchase of a table will automatically create eight tickets, leading to a correct calculation of your total quota and, as expected, eight persons on your check-in list. You can even ask for the individual names of the persons during checkout.

Minimum order amount

If you want to promote discounted group tickets in your price list, you can also do so by creating a special Group ticket at the reduced per-person price and set the Minimum amount per order option of the ticket to the minimal group size.

For more complex use cases, you can also use add-on products that can be chosen multiple times.

This way, your ticket can be bought an arbitrary number of times – but no less than the given minimal amount per order.
