Bookwhen requires your bookers to enter unique email addresses per attendee when checking out, meaning they cannot use the same email for more than one attendee. This system is currently in place to avoid double bookings and allow attendees to access their bookings individually.

This article covers:

You can set up your booking form so that when a booker checks out, they have the option to skip additional email addresses. Select the Booking form tab from within your entry and tick Yes under Will children be attending?:

You also can set this as a 'child-only event', meaning the system automatically marks all attendees as children.
