EE4 Event Promotions Early Registration Discounts?

I was aware that Promotional Discount codes were not yet available in EE4, but can you tell me if the Early Registration Discount option still exists to program a date that the price goes from discounted to full price? And if so, where I may find that option? Thank you.

To this end, I see that the documentation references the Triggered By Date, but I do not see within adding events or tickets where to select or unselect this option, or add in a specific date.

Here is how to set that up:

Create the early bird ticket. Then duplicate the ticket and update the date so it open right after the early bird ticket closes out. Then save changes to the event.

This is how I have set it up, but I am wondering if there is a way to “hide” the second ticket until it becomes active!

Oops meant active? 🙂

Hi Emily,

You can hide the ‘Pending’ tickets using CSS with something like this:

tr.tckt-slctr-tbl-tr.ticket-pending {
display: none;

The tickets are given a class of their current status, in this case .ticket-pending

So as the ticket ‘Goes on sale’ the class will alter to .ticket-on-sale

Does that help?

Also to note,

We recommend using either the My Custom CSS or Reaktiv CSS Builder plugins to add custom styles such as these.

Starting today, current support license holders can opt in to the pre-release channel and download the Event Espresso 4.7 and Promotion add-on pre-releases.

We’d love to get your feedback on some of the new promotion features and changes that we’ve been working on. These include:

  • New interface for managing promocodes
  • Promo code discounts now apply to entire order instead of per ticket
  • Promo code generator
  • Automatic (non-promo-code) discounts
  • Discounts limited by quantity
  • Discounts limited by start date and end date
  • A widget for displaying non-promo-code discounts
  • A shortcode for displaying non-promo-code discounts
Important: The Event Espresso 4 promotions add-on will activate only if Event Espresso 4.7 is active. This means you’ll need to install the Event Espresso 4.7 pre-release before installing the promotions add-on.

If you haven’t already opted into Event Espresso’s pre-release channel, you can go to your account page and check the box to opt in to the pre-release channel. Once you opt in, the download files will be available under the EE4 tab under the Pre Release Downloads heading.

You can find out more information about in the pre-release channel guide.

If you have feedback about Promotions or the 4.7 release, please reply to that Promotions announcement or start another new topic.
