Smart Discounting is a savvy way to manage your pricing according to demand, ensuring you fill your diary using discounts tactically to drive customers into your quieter times, while protecting your peak times. We see venues who offer Smart Discounting receive on average 50% more bookings than those who don't, so it's a sure fire way to generate more Treatwell bookings. What's more, the savings can attract new customers to choose your venue, but they may end up selecting an appointment that's full price; even better! When they do enjoy a saving though, you can be happy that they've filled one of your harder to book appointments, helping you earn more money.
There are two ways to smartly discount appointments sold on Treatwell:
- Last minute discounts: this is your tool to apply a saving to an appointment about to go unfilled
- Off peak discounts: this is your tool to apply savings for quieter times of the week and day
It's worth noting that smart discounts rules only apply to appointments sold on Treatwell and its partners, only to appointments and not to eVouchers, and that if multiple discounts apply to the appointment, only the largest discount is applied.
Setting up discounts is straightforward, just follow these simple steps:
- Go to 'Menu' on the top of your screen.
- Find the 'Smart discounts' button on the top right corner of the screen. This button displays the current discounts (set on individual Services). Click on the button and the smart discounting pop up screen will open.
- There are two types of discounts that you can choose from. The first one is the Last minute discounts. These discounts will automatically push out your last minute unfilled time slots at a discounted price to help drive customers to these appointments.
- Also you can enable Off-peak discounts, by checking the 'Enable time based discount for appointments' box in the pop up screen. A new information bar appears.
- Fill in the amount of discount you want to provide on certain weekdays. Press 'Save' on the bottom right corner of the pop up screen.
