Here’s another interesting workflow, Price Rule edition:

Each entry costs $200. Each additional entry (only after a full price entry) is $100. The first entry in Category B is free. 

Implemented with one Round Settings > Price Rule and three Round Settings > Coupon > No Coupon Rules.

Price Rule: 
Charge $200, applies to all entries.

No Coupon Rules:
Additional Entry Discount, $100 Off. 
Meets All, Overall Item is greater than 2.
Meets Any, User Previously Submitted is Yes, In This Program, In Any Category Group.

Second Additional Entry Discount, $100 Off. 
Meets All, Overall Item is 2.
Meets Any, User Previously Submitted is Yes, In This Program, In Any Category Group except Category B’s category group.

First Category B Entry, $200 off. 
Meets All, Entry with the same Category has been submitted by this user, Overall in Program is 0. 


Result:

  • The first (free) Category B entry is not counted when applying Additional Entry discounts.
  • The second Category B or any other category entry will be full price.
  • Additional entries in any category after the first full price entry will be discounted.
  • The charges are consistent no matter what order the entries are added to cart or checked out in.
  • Early bird / Late Fees still apply like normal, ‘before or after date’ for all entries.

We’re always coming up with clever ways to implement price rules but I really enjoyed this one in particular.
