Off-Sale - By Date or By Count
Off-Sale is a feature that will disable the display of a form payment page and replace it with a message. Off-Sale can be activated in two different ways:
1. By Date
Using Off-Sale By Date allows you to set a Date, Time, and Timezone along with configuring the message for the Off-Sale page. To enable Off-Sale By Date, select Date from the Off-Sale Type dropdown. The fields for Date, Time and Timezone will display underneath that selection.
2. By Count
Using Off-Sale By Count allows you to set a Maximum Count along with configuring the message for the Off-Sale page. To enable Off-Sale By Count, select Count from the Off-Sale Type dropdown. The fields for Current Count and Maximum Count will display underneath that selection.
The value for Current Count is based on the sum of all Count Increments processed for a form. A Count Increment is assigned to each pricing configuration on a form. When a new transaction takes place, the Current Count will increase by the Count Increment. If a transaction has been refunded in Stripe, the Current Count will decrease by the Count Increment. This number cannot be manually edited.
Maximum Count is the total number of Count Increment values this form is allowed to process. Once it reaches the Maximum Count number, the Off-Sale page will be displayed.
Updating Maximum Count
You can update the Maximum Count anytime you want. If you have 10 Count Increments that came from another source, you can update this number as needed.
A Count is an arbitrary thing. It's a count of something: seats, hats, pods, or whatever. If $25 gets you 1, you can set the Count Increment to 1. If $50 gets you 2, set the Count Increment to 2. If $100 gets you 4, set the Count Increment to 4. You could have 4 buttons on a form and each sells a different count. If you only have 3 Counts remaining any buttons selling more than 3 counts will be hidden, so you don't over sell.
