Promotions – using them as a gift voucher

Hi there. Is there any way to use a promotion code as a gift voucher of a set value that decreases in amount after each use? So if we give someone a code for £20 I can’t see a way to set it so that if they use £10 on one booking it leaves the other £10 on the code? I can only see that I can set it for intimate £20 use which I don’t want!

Many thanks in advance!

Hi there,

Officially no, we don’t have this functionality built into Event Espresso.

However, if you don’t use ‘Fixed value’ discounts for anything else I have a snippet which can do this for you here:

Is works by using fixed value discounts in the promotions add-on and subtracting the transactional total from the discount each time until it reaches 0, at which point it sets the expiration date to ‘now’ to prevent it from being used further.

Is that what you are looking for?

You can add that snippet to a custom functions plugin on your site, we have some documentation on creating one here:
