How can I track services sold through Groupon or other online promotions?
Services sold through Groupon or other promotional websites have usually already been paid for by the client. To track and redeem these services in Mangomint, follow the steps below.
Creating a Groupon service
To create a Groupon service, go to Settings > Services and add a new Groupon service category with all the services available in your Groupon promotion.
When creating the services, add the Groupon pricing and the duration of the services.
Under Additional options, you can add a pre-commission deduction to deduct any Groupon fees before calculating the commission for your staff members.
Assign the Groupon services to staff members.
Enable the Groupon services in online booking, if needed.
Optionally, since the services have already been paid for, you can disable the Require a credit card toggle for each service.
Creating a Groupon payment button
To track your Groupon sales, go to Settings > Payments & Checkout > Advanced Settings > Custom Payment Methods and add a Groupon payment button.
Checking out a Groupon service
To check out a Groupon service, start the checkout as you normally would. On the Payments screen, ask the client if they would like to leave a tip.
If the client does not want to tip, use the Groupon payment button to close the sale.
If the client does want to tip, select the tip percentage or enter a custom tip amount. Since the Groupon service has already been paid for, you only need to collect payment for the tip amount. To do this, enter the amount for the Groupon service as the Amount to charge and select the Groupon payment button.
Add any reference notes, if needed. Select Add to complete the Groupon payment.
Once the Groupon payment is complete, select another payment method for the remaining balance (tip amount) to complete the sale.
Running payroll for your staff members
When you run payroll for your staff members, their commission should be based on the dollar amount paid by the client minus any pre-commission deductions.
