There are times when a member may decide to cancel their membership with your club, and it's always important to deal with this quickly and efficiently - if the member has a bad experience cancelling, they'll be less likely to become a member again in the future.
Please be aware you need to cancel the membership plan Minimum 5 working days before the payment is due to ensure it is not requested by GoCardless, otherwise the payment will be taken.
How to Cancel a Membership Plan Immediately
Go to the Member's Profile.
Select the Membership Plan you'd like to cancel and click Edit.
Click on the Options tab to reveal the Cancel button.
This will allow you then to set the end date for the cancellation, which means that from the date you enter, the member will no longer be able to access your club.
You can choose to cancel the Membership immediately by putting the current date.
How to future date a cancellation
If you would like to cancel for the future firstly under the summary tab cancel the subscription (this ensures no future payments are requested).
You can then set up a future cancellation.
You can then setup a future cancellation under options and cancel membership, then enter in the new date.
Top Tip ✅
By letting your member access your club for a certain period of time (e.g. 30 days) after they have decided that they want to cancel, you are providing them with a great level of efficient service that could be the thing that makes them rejoin your club later on.
It's also useful if the member decides to cancel soon after a membership payment has been made - otherwise they won't be able to benefit from the month that they have just paid for!
