I have a client who'd like to give certain users an arbitrary discount or credit to be used to pay for a class. In these situations an admin will create the registration (using the Registration module) which will automatically create a cart with this class as a line item. I'm having trouble figuring out what process to use to (from the user's perspective) correct the price for the course in cart.
My understanding is that there's no way to modify the price for the line item directly. Assuming this is correct (if this isn't please let me know!), my research indicates I'll need to add a line item to the order that will (from the user's perspective) reduce the price to where they want it.
What should this line item be? A discount? A coupon? Something else? And, whatever the right "thing" is, how does it get applied?
I've tried installing commerce_discount and have set up a discount, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to apply it to an order. I've read through the info on this page --> https://drupalcommerce.org/user-guide/discounts-and-coupons, but if the answer I'm looking for is in there, I'm not finding it.
I've also just installed commerce_account_balance thinking that might work, and I am still testing it, but it isn't clear it will be a good fit for my use case either.
My assumption is that others must be doing this and I just don't know enough about Commerce pricing to recognize the one or more helpful answers that are already out there (stack exchange or elsewhere)...
Any direction / thoughts / help on this will be much appreciated.
(question originally posted here - it was suggested there that I post questions like this here...)
