No more waiting for checks that are “in the mail!” – collect payments immediately using debit or credit card payments.
BENEFITS TO YOUR POOL & THE BOARD
Paper checks, spreadsheets, Access database, punch cards, note cards. We’ve seen it all! Stop using manual methods and move to a complete online registration process which is safe, efficient and easy for your members. It also leads to much cleaner report data for your treasurer and the ability to understand how your members are paying for their products. For instance, in most of our clubs we know that the overwhelming majority choose to pay by credit card.
With online payments from Member Splash, not only can the membership now take advantage of using their credit cards to pay for things like dues and guest passes, but also party products, pavilion rentals and team gear. The collection process is fast and easy so the membership chair and treasurer could see on a daily basis just how much the pool had collected and for exactly what product! And since mistakes happen or members change their minds, the process to refund all or part of a transaction could not be simpler and can be accomplished now via the Authorize.net interface.
Like any process where you allow members to pay by credit card, this greatly enhances the bottom line of the pool, allowing them to collect late fees for payments not made on time and creating revenue which went through the roof for food sales!
BENEFITS TO MEMBERS
For members the difference is quite stark in that they have complete access to their open charges, their bills and payments and their account management itself. Because this pool allows members to add, delete and change their own members they are in charge and can quickly add new members and pay for them – all in real time. Also, allowing members to pay with their favorite cards, ApplePay or other cards which allows them to accumulate cash back and points is a major benefit. For many of the younger families they don’t even have checkbooks anymore and online payments are simply their reality and expectation.
