Time-based discounts allow you to offer your customers discounts based on the day and/or time of their booking. Whether it’s to drive more bookings to slower days or times or to refine your pricing, time-based discounts are a powerful way to improve your scheduling and revenue.
Note: To activate the feature, please contact the Vonigo admin.
Locations & Zones
To help you maximize revenue, time-based discounts can be set up by zone, service type, and on a per-location basis for multi-location operations.
Time-based discounts can be applied through the following options:
Discount by the days that follow the current date of the booking
Discount by the day of the month
Discount by the day of the week
With all three options, discounts can be available for specific times or the full day to give you flexibility in applying them.
When making a reservation, the discounted days and times are highlighted so your team can find them easily. When the job is booked, the discount automatically applies to the total.
Set Up the Time-based Discount
Go to Franchise > Zones > Zone Details screen.
Select the time-based discounts option.
Set up one of the following options below.
Days Following the current date of the booking
