A Daily Deal allows you to promote discounts on services, classes, memberships, packages, and gift certificates. Once you launch it and it's approved, it appears on vagaro.com, your booking page, and your custom website. You can also post the deal to your Facebook page.
Additionally, you can:
- Set a start date and time and an expiration date for each promotion you create.
- Limit promotions to new clients or specific users.
- Seamlessly add discounts to multiple items at the same time.
Remember, a daily deal can be used in conjunction with a promo discount code.
To explore this feature in more detail using the Vagaro Pro app, follow these steps:
