Within this article we are going to go over a quick view of membership plans and how to create them.
To access your membership plans you will firstly go to the settings cog in the top right then to membership plans. Within here you can see all the plans you currently have setup as well as access deleted plans by clicking 'show archived'.
To setup a new plan you will click 'setup new plan' then enter in the membership plan name for example monthly £25 per month.
The first page will allow you to enter in a summery of the plan, description as well as upload an image by clicking on the camera icon.
Now you can click on details.
Within here there are lots of different options to chose from such as if the plan can be brought online by members using the online app. if the membership plan allows club access, how long the membership plan will last for, and how the members will pay for the membership plan.
Now you can click on restrictions.
Within here you can setup session limits which is how many times the member can enter the club, aswell as time restrictions which are the times there member is allowed into the club.
Now click on activity access.
Within here you can select what activities the member is allowed to book into.
Now click on bolt-ons.
Within here you can allow a product to be bolted onto a membership plan, this means when purchasing a plan it will bring up an option to also purchase a product at the same time, please check out our bolt on article for more information.
Now click on payment schedule
Within here you can enter in how much a member will pay for the membership plan aswell as when the members will pay. You can use these tools to setup deferred first payment dates.
You can also add a joining fee. Within the image below I have setup the payments to be taken on the 1st of each month collection day is set to the 1st, with a £10 joining fee, followed by a monthly fee of £25 which will occur once a month and repeat indefinitely.
As you can see there are many choices to make but all giving the flexibility to create the income needed from membership plans that you can control at your finger tips.
Always decide how you want to market your membership as this will give you the best ideas for how to create the plan. For example think about how long the plan will be especially if you are going to combine a number of sessions as part of the offer.
It's always advisable to have a time period set up so that it expires at some stage.
eg. 10 sessions and lasts 3 months, whichever happens first, means you can get a renewal income rather than leave it open ended.
