The Dues & Billing Module Allows Club Treasurers Even More Flexibility

ClubRunner’s Development Team has been busy at work making it easier for your club to collect, track and report various payments with the Dues and Billing Module.

Not only can clubs track payments and debit/credit adjustments, but now you can specify more details about the payment terms and conditions, and due date for payments. Also, when posting a payment, you can now specify your own transaction date (to accommodate previously received payments) instead of defaulting to the date the information is entered. This will provide more insight for when payments are received.

Coming soon: manual credit card payments will be able to be processed by club treasurers. Stay tuned for more details.

Week 40: Tip of the Week

#40: Did you know that you can earn revenue for your club and promote local businesses by having website sponsors?

Having a web presence for your club has many benefits, both for the club itself and its members. As many businesses are moving to online options to promote their products and services, why not provide a platform for promotion and public relations. Adding a sponsorship ad to your site is simple. To start adding sponsors, follow these steps once logged in*:

1. Once you have logged in, click on Website Sponsorship Area under the For Administrators heading.

2. Click on Add New Sponsorship.

3. Type in an email address or URL if you want the sponsorship ad to become a link.

4. Select Text for a text sponsor, or Image for an image.

5. Type in the text for a text sponsor.

6. Click the Browse... button and locate the image for an image sponsor.

7. Type in a Start Date and End Date

8. Decide on where you wish this ad to appear. You can choose to show on any of the following: Home page, Secondary pages and eBulletin.

9. Click on Save

*Please note that only Site Administrators have access to this feature.

Clubs typically charge anywhere from $50 to $250 for annual sponsorships, and this depends on the size of your club as well as the friends distribution list. Don’t forget to upload your own sponsoring guide so that interested parties can find out your club’s policies and get in touch with your club if interested. You can upload this file under the For Administrators section, by clicking on Website Sponsoring Guide.
