EE4 – price modifier – how does it work

Hi, I’ve read the doc on price modifier, I just found a line saying you can use the price modifier. But how does it work? The example shows earlybird – but I cannot set dates to price modifier, so how does it know ‘not’ to modify the price?
Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi there,

I’m not sure which documentation you were reading, but I can try to clarify:

Event Espresso 4 has a feature that allows for modifying a ticket price. So for example you can do a ticket price of $50, and add a percent or fixed amount surcharge, or a discount. So for example if it’s a 10% surcharge the total ticket price will be $55 per ticket when the price modifier is active. There’s no date settings for price modifiers, they’re either added to the ticket, or not.

If you want conditional price modifiers, where someone answers a question on the registration form, then the price goes up by a specific amount based on the answer to that question, then there’s a third party add-on you might be interested in:

Thanks Josh,

Of course I cant find the link again – it’s your doc page that talks about all the elements of the ticket. There is an example of an earlybird price modifier, and a veteran discount. I don’t undertstand how either of these is displayed – If a ticket has an earlybird and a veteran price option shouldn’t those both appear on the ticket selector?

So what’s the advantage of doing price modifier for earlibird vs 2 different tickets with different dates? Then I can also see in the backend what ticket has sold when, and that also shows to my prospective clients that the full price ticket goes on sale the day of the festival (at the gate) and prompts them to buy early.

THanks

That sounds like two separate tickets, not one ticket with two options.

I suppose the advantage would be if you wanted to display fewer ticket options, then you could do a price modifier discount for earlibird pricing, then trash the price modifier when the early registration time period ends.

The disadvantage would be it’s not automated (like how you set sale start and end dates for each ticket).

Thanks Josh,

Found your documentation: https://eventespresso.com/wiki/add-new-event/

All price modifiers on the same ticket, that’s what confused me. You may need to update?

That looks like something Seth put together to show different examples of what you can do with Price Modifiers (the Star Wars references give it away)

I’m sorry for the confusion.
