Discount codes can also be used to offer group rates. For a primer on discount codes, it might be helpful to check out the main discount codes article, first.
Using Discount Codes for Groups
Group discounts are easy to offer by creating a discount code and raising the minimum purchase number. For example: if your group discount kicks in at 8 tickets and a patron tries to use it with a purchase of 6 tickets, the discount will not work.
You can also use discount codes for a specific group by giving a unique discount code to an organization (without a minimum) and having individuals purchase their tickets using the code. To prevent unlimited sharing of the code, you may limit the number of tickets that may be purchased with the code to the event.
