I've just started and I'm new to this but haven't seen anything for coupon code entry for offering discounts on renatls.
We want to have a property listing that caters for all including our friends and family. We want to be able to offer our family a discounted stay but keep it on the books so to speak. Is there a way to configure a discount code to give to family members so that they can make their arrangements online as normal and apply a discount on the regular rates?
The generated quote would state code and renters name for confirmation prior to going out to renter of course.
Is this a reasonable way to deal with this or am i out to lunch? Let me know if there is abetter way to deal with this?
Currently, there is no way to automatically distribute and accept coupon codes through the current quoting system. We do have that listed on the development roadmap, but it hasn't been implemented yet.
When generating quotes, you would need to manually add a line item with a negative amount for the guest.
I'm sorry if I missed it, but is there a way to offer coupon codes to guests (such as repeat customers) that they can enter and use when paying a quote?
Ditto. I was just about to send out a promotional email to my past guests and was wondering if there is a coupon code feature to implement on the inquiry/booking form. Has this feature been implemented and I simply can't find it?
For example, I'm offering 10% off for return guests, so would like to create a coupon code that applies 10% off the nightly rate.
No, it's not implemented yet :-( Still a manual process. We have it on the dev list.
We are also interested in this, and would appreciate a heads up once the feature is available.
We just want to be able to offer discount coupons as promos or individually, and then allow bookers to redeem by entering the code in a field when checking out through OR.
I would like this also. :)
I would love to see a coupon code option!
Coupon code option would be great! and HUGE addition to the tools we have to market our own properties. It appears this has been on the request list for a long time. It would need to be applicable during the "booking" process to be used on in a widget on a website would be perfect.
We were trying to figure out how to give our guests a coupon for a third night's rental... is this still on the list of things to implement?
Yep, still on the list and getting closer :-)
Right now you can either have them ask in an inquiry and apply the discount. Or you could do this with a landing page and a special widget:
a) Go to Settings > Channel Connections and create a custom source, like "my friendly discount"
b) Go to Settings > Widgets and create a book now widget. Set it's listing site to the source you created in (a) and create a hidden page with that widget on it.
c) Go to Settings > Surcharges & Discounts and create a discount with a listing site criteria that only applies to the source you created in (a)
That will auto apply that discount to anybody booking through that page -- then you just share that link with guests to make the booking.
I understand you're working on this for other sites, but what about a personal website thru OR? Maybe you could start with OR hosted sites? Hahahaaa! How selfish was that?!?
A little birdy told me that we're looking into an initial version of discount codes, hopefully will be very soon!

Yeeeeeeesssssssss! Just as I have gotten a new email marketing system up and running!
Finally got this feature released! Read more:
Perfect! Thank you!
Can we have it for multiple discount codes? Or, just one at a time?
You can have more than one discount code. Remember that guests can only use one, and discounts of different types don't stack.
