Discounts for Multiple Tickets to Attend Different Sessions

I’ve read several forum responses and tried different settings to no avail. We’re using EE4.

Scenario: We have a 2-day event which includes 4 sessions (Day 1 Morning, Day 1 Afternoon, Day 2 Morning, and Day 2 Afternoon). Attendees can register for any or all of the sessions (1,2,3, or 4). They receive a discount for multiple sessions. We tried ticket bundles, promotion codes, and multiple event registration, though it is likely we did not configure something correctly. Should this be multiple events or multiple ticket per event? Both? What is the best way to achieve the following:

1 session $250
2 sessions $450
3 sessions $650
4 sessions $800

We also need to know which session they choose as the content of each session is different.

Our current setup uses bundles with additional registration questions to identify the sessions. You can see the current page here: https://www.leftbrainpro.com/events/ohio-small-business-govcon-summit/

Hi there,

We don’t currently have a better fit for the discount you are trying to achieve than what you are currently using. The only other way to offer discounts across these sessions is to create multiple tickets within the event for the user to select that covers the combinations of sessions, however, that’s going to lead to a high number of tickets.

Sucuri is currently blocking my ticket submissions so I can’t view this – http://take.ms/mFzVm

The event page containing the ticket selection has been cached which is triggering an error, which is triggering the issue with Surcuri. You’ll need to exclude the EE pages from the WP Fastest Cache plugin on the site, we have details on how to do that here:

Hi Tony,

Thank you for the feedback. I fixed the cache settings in Sucuri.

The event page linked above is still being served from cache – http://take.ms/qGp2F

If you are logged into the site when testing you won’t see the cached version so you’ll need to log out to confirm. You may just need to purge the cache if you have set the exclusions so it won’t be reached.

Sucuri is also still throwing the same error due to the above.

Hi Tony,

I just added the event page itself. Will I need to do this for each event? I would have thought /events/ in the excluded URL list would have included any sublinks such as /events/ohio-small-business-govcon-summit/.

Thank you for your guidance!!

Yes, /events/ should normally exclude any url containing that string.

However, those settings don’t look like that are from WP Fastest Cache, where are you setting the above?

Hi Tony,

I just fixed the settings in WP Fastest Cache and have an email to my IT consultant about the need for this plugin since Sucuri provides cache. Not sure if the two are/will conflict.

Thanks again!

We like Event Espresso – still learning, but definitely a great value for the tool!

Did you purge the cache after adding the above?

The site is currently still serving the same cached page.

That’s better, I can view the checkout now, thank you.

So looking over the setup, the one part that is going to be a little harder to manage is the spaces available on each different session as you can’t use datetimes to set the limits you’ll need to filter the registrations from the CSV using whichever suite you prefer.

Whilst not perfect, I think your current setup is better than the alternative which would be a ticket selection of something like:

Session A = $250
Session A + B = $450
Session A + B + C = $650
Session A + B + C + D = $800
Session A + C + D = $650
Session B = $250

And so on.
