This article describes how to sell "Packages" on your website. A package is a bundle of credits that can be used to register for classes, appointments, event series and workshops. For example, you can create a "10 Pack" and sell it for $150 and it can be used for all your offerings or a select group of offerings. Keep reading to learn how to create and manage your packages and how your clients or students purchase and use them to register.
Creating and Editing a Package
There are two things you need to have set up before you can create a package.
- At least one Offering. If you haven't created an Offering yet you'll be asked to do that. For an overview on how to create Offerings and creating your schedule with OfferingTree please see this help guide.
- Connecting a payment processor (Stripe or Braintree). To read about how to get started accepting payments online with OfferingTree check out this help article
Creating a Package
Once you can accept payments and have at least one Offering, you can create a package. To get started, visit the "Packages" page under the "Payments" section and press the "Create Package" button.
Once you press the "Create Package" button, a pop-up displays. Fill out the "Create a Package" pop-up to configure your package. If you would like this package to be valid for all your offerings, choose "All Offerings". If you would only like select offerings to be valid with this package you can choose them by selecting "Choose Offerings".
You can optionally add an expiration date to your package. Just select the "Package Expires" checkbox and then select the time duration for the package. You can select any number of weeks, months or years. The expiration clock starts when your client purchases the package. For example, say you entered a one-month expiration, then your client has one month from the time of purchase to use the package. Your client will receive a notification email 24 hours before the package expires if they still have credits left on their package. This is optional and if you don't select the expiration checkbox, packages do not expire.
If you do provide an expiration date, the package will need to be used before it expires. Additionally, the package can also not be used to book classes or appointments beyond the expiration date.
Once you have set up your package and selected the payment information, press "Create Package". This will save your package. You can always go back and edit it by hitting the edit pencil in the packages table.
Adding Your Packages Page
Once you have at least one package created, your public-facing site will have a new page called "Packages". This page will host all your packages and memberships. You will need to publish this page so that it is visible to all your website visitors. You can publish the page and also edit the title and the order in which it appears on your public site by visiting the "Pages" page under "Edit Website". To learn more about editing pages and re-ordering them, watch this tutorial video.
Editing a Package
To edit a package you already created, go to the "Packages" page under "Payments. Press the "Edit" icon in the corresponding row of the package you want to edit.
Once your press the "edit" icon, you should be taken to the "Edit Package" page where you can edit your package. The fields are the same as they were for the "Create a Package" page. Press the "Save" button at the bottom when you are finished editing your package.
