Example: Ticket with 10 Uses

In this example we create a multi-ride ticket (gift card) which the customer can buy from POS, and then use it on POS to receive the same product 10 times.

Create a Ticket Product with 10 Uses

First, create a product that can be redeemed on POS with the gift card. Often using a ticket with multiple uses is usually cheaper per use than buying a new single ticket every time.

In this example a single ticket costs €25, but with a multi-ride ticket the fare is €20. To make accounting work properly, you should create two products:

  • Single ticket product with price €25, which can be bought directly from POS

  • Ticket with 10 uses, which is never sold directly from POS, but is linked to a gift card; every time it is used, the fare is €20.

Create a Gift Card Template for the Multi-Ride Ticket

Next, create a Gift Card template with the following options:

  • Type: Product.

  • Use time: The amount of times the product can be redeemed.

  • Value min/max/default: How much a ticket with 10 uses costs on POS. In this example €20 x 10 uses = €200. All of these values should always be exactly the same.

  • Sold on POS: Enable this option, so the gift card can be sold on POS. Make sure you have created the gift card product with VAT 0%, with the proper accounting rules.

  • Product Limit: Add here the product the customers can redeem with the gift card with 10 uses.

To enable proper accounting of tickets created above, create two additional Accounting rules.
