Hey there, I'd like to make a discount code called "guestofowner"and have it discount just the rent (nightly rate) by 20%, I would then give that code to the owner and when he has friends that want to book, instead of cutting me out and taking payment himself, he can have them book directly on my website and still give his friends a discount. Of course if he has family friends, I could make a discount code for 40%, whatever he'd like. For some reason when you hit "Discount Code" you aren't allowed to discount "% of rent" You are only allowed to give them a discount at a set price, for example "$500" which isn't great if in the summer you have high rates but then in the winter they are staying for 0$ because the $500 is more than the cost of rent or "% of subtotal" which I wouldn't want to discount taxes and cleaning fees, just rent. 


Thank you.

There's a workaround for this case: https://www.ownerreservations.com/support/articles/discount-codes#position -- use percent of subtotal and configure positioning to make sure the discount comes before surcharges so that it only applies to rent.
