Membership Application Discounts

You can add discounts to memberships, that can be entered from the membership application form. See Add Discount/Promo Code to New Memberships for instructions.

  • Enabled: Select the payment options you wish to offer on your membership application. Staff will have all frequencies available from the back office. NOTE: Frequency options available will be determined by the term of them membership type. For example: If the term of the membership type is 12 months, the system will automatically provide options for Annually, Semi-annually, Quarterly and Monthly. If the term of the membership is 7 months, the system would allow for a monthly option and a once per term option.
  • Allow Invoicing: This setting allows you to configure, per frequency, whether you will let the applicant select an invoice me option.
  • Allow Credit Cards: This setting allows you to configure, per frequency, whether you will accept credit card or ACH payments.

  • Price Change %: This setting allows you to increase or decrease the base price, per frequency. To increase the base price enter a positive number and to decrease the price enter a negative number. For Example: If you offer a monthly frequency option but wish to increase the base price for this option by five percent, enter 5. Conversely, if you would like to provide an incentive to pay annually, by decreasing the base price by five percent, enter, -5. NOTE: Price Change is optional. If you simply wish to setup the invoicing and credit card options for each frequency, you can leave these fields blank, and the system will simply calculate the frequencies based on the term you have configured. 

The Per Bill Amt column will be updated immediately to display the amount that will be billed, based on the frequency & percent change you have entered.
