This article explains the different Membership Types in Gym Assistant.

Membership Types Explained

Membership Plans

                                A Membership Plan is time-based. The member says a defined amount for a given period of time. A membership plan has a billing period (for example, every month), and it can also have a contract length.The Contract Length for a membership is optional. If you specify a contract you can also                                        determine what will happen at the end of the contract.

                               If the contract length is simply a minimum commitment (billing will continue after the contract is fulfilled) then basically nothing will happen at the end of the contract (unless they begin a new contract).

                               If billing should stop at the end of the contract then you can specify that the member's contract will be terminated at the end of the contract then you can specify that the member's contract will be terminated at the end of the contract (unless they begin a new contract).

Punchcard Plans

                               A Punchcard Plan is based on visits, rather than time.  A member with a Punchcard Plan can buy a package of entries into the club (visits). Each time the member checks in at the front desk one visit is automatically deducted from his total number of visit credits remaining. Member check-in usually                                     happens when the member scans a barcode, but check-in can also be done manually by the front-desk staff.

Day-Pass Plans

                                 A Day-Pass Plan requires that the member pays for each visit individually. For example, a Day-Pass plan might be useful for a rock climbing gym where each member must have a signed waiver on file. A Day-Pass plan can be used by members or non-members(walk-ins). A Day Pass sold to a walk-in will record the visit and                                     the revenue, but that visit will not be attached to any member (basically anonymous).

Membership Add-Ons

Monthly Add-Ons

                             A Monthly Add-On can only be added to a monthly membership. The amount of the add-on is simply added on to the member's regular monthly dues. For example, a club might charge $10 per month for locker rental. Those members with Locker Rental added to their memberships will have the $10                                   per month added to their regular monthly membership fees.

Punchcard Add-Ons

                             A Punchcard Add-On provides a way to sell packages of credits and then count down the number of credits left for that member as they are used. You can use Punchcard Add-Ons to sell aerobics classes, personal training sessions, tanning, equipment rentals or almost anything that would be                                           tracked  with a counter.

                             Note: A Punchcard Add-on is different from a Punchcard Plan. With a Punchcard  Membership Plan one visit credit is deducted automatically when the member enters the facility. Punchcard Add-on credits are not deducted automatically, but must be registered individually at the front desk.

Working with Membership Types 

  • You must specify your pricing structure by creating a set of Membership Types.
  • Every member will then be assigned to one of those types that you create.
  • Think of your list of Membership Types as a "price list", as it will determine how often members pay, what method they use to pay and how much they pay
  • Any change that you make to one of your membership types will be applied to all members that are assigned that membership type.
  • You can define up to 128 membership types.
  1. To edit your Membership Types, select Membership Plans from the Settings menu.
Note: This lets you easily change your pricing structure without having to modify all your member records
