Enrollsy can offer one or more Discounts on a Program's Total Program Cost or Enrollment Fees. These are the first of more Discounts to come that can be added straight to a Program and automatically applied during enrollment.

NOTE: As of the writing of this article, Discounts can ONLY be entered as dollar amounts. If you need to have a percentage Discount, please use Coupon Codes. (Discounts are NOT available on legacy billing).

Discount Types

The current Discount types are:

  • Payment Plan Selection - apply a discount to the Pay-in-Full selection or Payment Plan selection (or both!)

  • Multiple Enrollees - apply a discount for two or more Enrollees enrolled in the same location and the same Enrollment Period under the same account, i.e., Sibling Discount. It doesn't take into account the age of the enrollees. It takes off whatever dollar amount is entered on the 2nd enrollee and so on (if you add more). A discount can be applied for up to 20 Enrollees.

  • Date - Apply a discount on a specified date, i.e., Early Bird Discount

  • Returning Customer -apply a discount when the person enrolling uses an email address that is already on file.

Discount Items

If you haven't already, make sure to create your Discount Items. For the above Types, your Discount names could be the following:

  • Sibling Discount

  • Early Bird Discount

  • Returning Student Discount

  • Pay-in-Full Discount

  • Payment Plan Discount

Charge Items

To add a Discount to your Program cost(s), you will also need to have Charge Items to attach those Discounts to. These are Charges that are either required or not required at enrollment. They can be Charges to be paid in full, OR they will be paid with a Payment Plan.
