Family Pack Discounts - Is There a Way to Do This And Avoid People Reselling Their Passwords?

Yeah, I definitely think a referral scheme is the way to go. For every person someone refers to you, you could apply a 10% discount to their package so long as the person they referred is paying you. I don't know you're business model, but I can't see why you shouldn't be able to apply infinite discounts recursively. So let's say you charge $10 per month, and someone has referred 10 customers:



They'd then be getting the service for $3.48 per month, but you'd be making an extra $100 from the other 10 customers.

$10.00 - 10% = $9
$9.00 - 10% = $8.1
$8.10 - 10% = $7.29
$7.29 - 10% = $6.56
$6.56 - 10% = $5.9
$5.90 - 10% = $5.31
$5.31 - 10% = $4.78
$4.78 - 10% = $4.3
$4.30 - 10% = $3.87
$3.87 - 10% = $3.48

And here's the function that will work it all out for you.

Code:
function get_discounted_fee($monthly_fee=0, $discount_percent=0, $referred_customers=0)
{
    if ($monthly_fee > 0 && $discount_percent > 0 && $referred_customers > 0)
    {
        $monthly_fee = round(($monthly_fee / 100) * (100 - $discount_percent), 2);
        $monthly_fee = get_discounted_fee($monthly_fee, $discount_percent, $referred_customers - 1);
    }
    return $monthly_fee;
}

I hope I haven't overstepped my boundaries here, I just thought it might be a good idea. Rather than targeting discounts at families, you can give everyone the opportunity.
