 Season Passes

The provision of Season Passes is an additional feature of our Coupons Plugin

The Season Pass is sold to your customers as a Product on your site’s WooCommerce Shop page

Next – click on the “Coupon” link at the bottom of the list on the left

The top group of settings can be used to help determine how that code is generated

The first setting that you will need to reset is “Discount Type

This should be set to “Cart % Discount” – and the Coupon Amount below should be set to 100

Next – you probably want to set the “Expiry date formula

There are instructions on how you can set this – but if for example you simply wanted to have it expire at year’s end – then using ‘2015 eoy‘ would be all you needed for this field

In the “Only Specific Events” box click where it says “Search for an event…

In the area below click on the button marked “Add Limitation
