Clients love discounts and promotions.

One of the most popular ways to drive revenue, reward existing customers and attract new buyers is to offer discounts for your services.

Coupon codes, automatic or conditional discounts, and special rates can be used during certain seasons, promotions, or at any time you wish in order to increase customers’ loyalty.

Let’s see how a wide range of Bookly features can help you meet various requirements and encourage your clients to book more through your appointment booking form.

Customer Groups

With the Customer Groups (Add-on) for Bookly, you can create a group of customers and specify a fixed or percentage discount that will be applied for such users during online booking.

Thus when a customer (who is authorized in WordPress) schedules an appointment via the Bookly booking form, the system automatically detects if this client belongs to the group with the enabled discount. If so, the total cost of the booking will be recalculated.

Group discount is displayed in the payment details.

Dynamic Pricing

Bookly Special Hours (Add-on) enables you to add special time periods during which the cost of the service will be different from the default pricing. You can set a cheaper price for the selected days and hours of the week, and even highlight such time slots in the booking form to suggest them to your clients.

Furthermore, dynamic pricing can be configured for each employee and each service separately.
