When using Easy Digital Downloads and the Recurring Payments addon, you can set discounts to only apply to the initial payment, and not to renewal payments:


However, this applies to all discounts.

But what happens if you want to create a discount for a charity to give them 20% off the download price for ever? Currently it's not possible with EDD and Recurring Payments. With this code, it's now possible.

The code gives you a new setting on the discount screen:


Discounts with that setting enabled will mean subscriptions purchased with that discount will have the discount applied to subsequent renewals.
