What's the difference between a discount and a voucher?
Voucher: a voucher can be generated to discount someone's registration fee if they are not eligible for the pre-created discounts on Play Football, a code will be generated either as a single-use or multi-use.
Discount: a discount is used to be applied to a larger group of participants as no voucher code needs to be generated.
If you wish to make a discount available to your registrants such as an early bird, general, role, sibling or student discount, then please follow these steps.

Your discount has now been saved and added to the 'Discount Rule List'.
The 'General' discount if chosen during the creation/editing of your products will mean that EVERYONE that registers to that product will receive that discount.
The 'Role' discount allows clubs to encourage club members to participate in a volunteer capacity with the use of role discounts i.e. if a player first registers as a referee/coach/volunteer/committee they will then receive a discount when completing their player registration.
**Important: in order for a player to receive this discount, they must first register as either a referee/coach/volunteer/committee and received email confirmation that they have been made ACTIVE.
For the 'Sibling' discount, club's can offer discounts to siblings that also join with the club. So after the registering of the first child who will pay full price, each respective child registerd to the club on the same Play Football account can receive this discount as stated below.
The last discount offered is 'Student' discount, there is no verification of this discount so it's advisable that if club's wish to use this discount that they either get potential registrants to provide their student ID before registering or before approving their registration that they verify this.
