As an incentive for people to pay early, you may want to offer a discount. To do this, follow these simple steps:
Step 1: To begin the process of creating an early payment discount for an Optional Extra, hover over ‘Payment Options’ in the main menu and select ‘Optional Extras’ in the drop-down menu that appears.
Step 2: Next, select ‘Add new’ if you are creating a new Optional Extra, or ‘Edit’ to change an existing one.
Step 3: A pop-up box will then appear with the options for setting up your Optional Extra.
One of the questions you will be asked is, ‘Offer an early payment discount?’ – select, ‘Yes’.
Step 4: Once you have selected ‘Yes’ additional fields will appear.
Here, you can select whether to discount the price by an amount or a percentage. Whichever you select, you will then insert a number that you wish to discount the price by.
You will also select the date that payment is required on or by to be eligible for the discount. Once this date passes, so will the opportunity for a discounted rate, the system will automatically update any outstanding payment requests.
Step 5: Once you are happy with your choices and the rest of the Optional Extra settings, click ‘Save and Finish’.
You will now have successfully added the option for an early payment discount to your Optional Extra.
