We have implemented a function to compute a member's dues based on their employee count when tiered membership is in place.
On the screen where you create/edit tiers, there are now fields for "Rate", "Rate Threshold" and "Sample number of Employees."
The rate is how much per employee they want to charge (e.g., $2/employee) If you leave it as 0.00, the tiers behave the way they always have when using traditional membership plans.
Rate Threshold is the minimum number of employees at which you start charging that rate (e.g., $20 in dues until you have 50 employees and then $2/employee for each employee over 50).
The sample number of employees allows you to preview how much a member of a particular employee count would be charged with and check that your settings match your expectations.
For example, if you have a range from 50-100 and Dues of $50 with a Rate of $2.00 and Rate Threshold of 60, a member with 55 employees would be charged $50, while a member with 75 employees would be charged $80 = ($50 + (15*$2)).
We are currently only allowing superusers to adjust the rate settings until we are sure its correct for you. If you would like full access, we can arrange that too.
Please also let us know if you have any questions or if you run into any errors.
THANK YOU TO DANIELLE AND JOHN FROM SOUTHWEST VALLEY CHAMBER. Monthly membership payments are often a hassle since so many credit cards expire, etc. Danielle and John had a great idea that we decided to engineer into the system for everyone to benefit from. If you offer monthly membership dues and have Authorize.Net as your merchant account (may work with others), you can now force it to only accept ACH instead of credit cards. So now their checking account will be debited instead of a credit card. However, credit cards are still an option for those signing up for annual memberships.
THANK YOU TO LAURA from the Prescott Chamber for this addition. As I (Richard Scully) travelled for three weeks straight meeting with customers late last year, I took 16 pages of solid notes. I have been working with engineering on every single idea and request. This one was to allow a two way event process. Before this change you always had to add events to the calendar first and then go into the event registration system to create the event from the calendar post. NOW, you can start in the event registration system, and from the final preview page, move it to the calendar. So YOU ARE free to start events on either the calendar or the event registration system. You can see the image below to understand how you start at the event registration system and then be able to insert that automatically into your calendar.
