Percentage discounts will apply the same percentage to each eligible charge on the invoice. Percentage discounts will never discount a plan setup fee. This difference allows merchants to create coupons that only discount plan fees and add-ons, by using a percentage discount. The reverse is true as well. Merchants can create a fixed amount discount that will only discount a setup fee. See below for more details.
Percentage Discount Example
Coupon is for 10% off Plan A. Plan A has a setup fee of $50.00, a plan fee of $15.00 and an add-on of $7.00. The resulting invoice would have these discounts:
- Plan A - Setup fee of $50.00 will not be discounted
- Plan A - Plan fee of $15.00 will be discounted 10% for a discount total of ($1.50)
- Plan A - Add-on of $7.00 will be discounted 10% for a discount total of ($0.70)
- The total discount on the invoice is ($2.20)
- The customer pays $69.80
