Any product in LearningCart can have one or more prices associated with it. At least one price must be added in order for a product to be orderable.
Multiple prices can be utilized to offer various product options (such as DVD or CD) or to offer different subscription options to users (e.g. 1 month access for $9.99 or 6 months access for $29.99). When a user purchases a product the pricing options you have configured are displayed for the user to select from via a drop down list. The default sort when multiple prices are entered is by event date (if entered) then by price name.
Bulk Discounts can also be set up for products. This feature allows you to set prices based on quantities ordered.
The following information is required when adding a new Product Price:
- Price Name: The name of the price that will be shown to users. It is recommended you use a descriptive name so users understand the option they are selecting (e.g. 1 month access, 6 months access, CD, DVD, etc.).
- Unit Price: The price that will be charged.
- Generate Registration Codes: If this is a virtual product (e.g. a digital file or SCORM module) setting registration codes to “Yes” will allow the purchaser to purchase multiple seats for their users. Upon completing their purchase the purchaser will get access to a series of registration codes (1 registration code for every seat they purchased) that they can distribute to their users. These registration codes will allow users to visit the LearningCart site, create an account, and access the appropriate content. Note that if 1 unit is purchased it will automatically be assigned to the purchaser. If greater than 1 unit is purchased all the units will be provided as registration codes.
- Recur (for months) - For recurring billing, enter the number of months the charge should be billed after the initial billing. (Authorize.net users only)
- Trial Period (days) - Enter the number of days before a user is automatically billed. (Authorize.net users only)
- Duration: For virtual products this specifies how many months the user will have access to the content. The default value is 0 which indicates unlimited access.
