Using Discount Coupons
SimpleClinic allows you to generate promotional discount coupons, which can then be used and applied to online bookings for services such as consultations.
First you need to create some discount coupons. In the main Navigation Bar, click on the Inventory option and select Coupons.
The coupon list screen will be displayed to show all coupon details.
Click on the Add New button to create a new discount coupon.
The details needed on this screen include the following:
Code -- your discount code, which can be a combination of letters and numbers only, with a maximum of 16 characters and no spaces or symbols
Expiry -- the date and time that the coupon expires. This defaults to one month from the current date, but can be changed from the date picker
Discount method -- is the discount for a percentage off the usual price, or a dollar amount discount? Choose from the two options
Discount amount -- enter the discount percentage or amount value, as a number only
Description -- details of the discount coupon, for your clinic reference only
Coupon services -- to which services will the discount coupon can be applied to. The default is \"No\" for all services. Toggle each service, to limit the coupon to only those services you would like it to be applied to.
Click on Save to create the new coupon.
Applying a Coupon
Once you have created your discount coupon, you can use the code in your marketing to your clients or to the public!
The discount coupon can be applied to services such as consultations only at the moment. When a client uses the online booking page, they have an option to enter in a discount code on the payment screen. They type in the coupon code and click on the \"Apply Coupon\" button which checks the validity of the coupon, and if ok, adjusts the amount to pay.
