At Ashbourne we make it as easy as possible for people to set up their club membership, with payment taken securely yet flexibly. As part of this, don’t forget that we offer PayPal as an option for the first payment.
By allowing a first month’s membership payment to be taken via PayPal as well as the option of debit/credit card, we are giving people a secure and convenient way to pay. With people’s card details already stored in their PayPal account, signing up via PayPal is fast and efficient.
And once that first payment has been made, for clubs outside the UK, we offer SEPA Direct Debit as an efficient and fully compliant way of collecting Euro-based direct debits.
Any UK based Direct Debits are collected using the standard Direct Debit structure.
Using our collection service, you therefore get the best of both worlds – a new member can join immediately, using the mechanism of card/PayPal payment for the first month, but then any ongoing membership collection in month 2 and beyond is taken using the most efficient method possible – direct debit.
If you’re not yet offering card/PayPal for first payment and Direct Debit for ongoing membership, then talk to Ashbourne NOW about how to get this set up.
I have used Ashbourne for my payment collection for 10 years now. The software they have provided keeps improving and they work with the clubs to make it better. It’s easy to use and packed full of features.
At McCaulay’s Health Clubs and Gyms we utilise the full suite of Ashbourne services, including the latest Membership Validation Till System, which really is helping to boost our secondary spend. Their core service of payment collection is utterly reliable and professional.
My members can sign up online through the fully branded page that Ashbourne provide. If any of my members have a payment query they deal with Ashbourne direct, allowing me to concentrate on running my club.
