Adding a discount to a club

Once you have the discount created you can edit your club. Navigate to Clubs on the left hand nav bar and click on the Name of Your Club. Click on Club Actions in the upper right, and Edit Club. About half way down you will now see a section for Discounts where you can check your newly created discount.

When do your Clubmembers get notified about their orders?
Clubmembers get notified at two times during the Release (Shipment) process:
Notify function - When you are creating a club order for a customer, one of the choices is to 'Notify' them. This is an email that is sent to the customer with details about when the customer's card will be charged and when the items will ship. Additionally, if there's an issue with the card on file (expired, missing, etc), the member will be prompted to log into their Club account to update it.
Automatic receipt - Once a club order is charged, an automatic receipt with order details is sent to the customer. If the card fails, the member is prompted to log into their Club account to update it. Once updated, VS will automatically re-charge and no further action is required from the admin.
