Want to make it easy for your new members to be engaged with your organization right from the time they sign up? Did you know that with Membee’s New Member Sign Up form, you can offer your new members additional items to purchase at the same time they purchase their membership?
Here are some highlights of having additional items on your New Member Sign Up:
You can present additional optional or required items including:
- Offering new members the convience of additional purchases such as a ticket to your upcoming events
- Offering new members a voluntary purchase such as a donation
- The ability to include a purchase that may be mandatory such as:
- Required professional insurance, choosing from a couple of options
- One time administration fee
Membee takes care of all the related financial processing behind the scenes making it easy for both you and your new members.
There are many possibilities of how you can use the New Member Sign Up, but here are some common examples of how to use this:
Have Your New Member Sign Up for an Event
If events are a major reason why members join your organization then you’ll want to remind them how great those events are by giving them the opportunity to register for one at the same time.
One quick financial note on this. To the member, it looks like one purchase but Membee actually creates a new invoice on the fly for the event purchase so your financial reporting of the membership sign up and the event purchase revenues remain separate, clear, and accurate.

Gather a One Time Administration Fee
If your organization charges a one time administration fee, or a mandatory insurance fee, you can gather this as part of the new member sign up process. Not only does Membee gather this, but it ensures that it is not set up as part of their membership renewal billing going forward and just a one time fee at sign up.
