Every January as weary parents return their kids to school for another year, you know it’s not too long before the winter sporting membership drives will kick in, followed by the invoicing marathon.
It’s a great time for sporting clubs and associations to take stock of your processes and to ensure the fee collection model you’re using is working to make your life easier.
Could direct debit billing work for your club?
By offering your families a direct debit billing option, you allow them to make payments weekly, fortnightly or monthly over the season or year. This system not only means that your club receives a steady and reliable flow of cash across the season, but it can also provide the opportunity for those families who find it difficult to pay fees up front, to also participate.
Benefits of direct debit billing for sporting clubs
Once you get your members or families signed on through a simple join online system, fees are paid automatically through PaySmart’s direct debit billing. You don’t need to worry about monthly invoices and following up late or dishonoured payments—PaySmart handles all of that on your behalf.
It’s easy for sporting club management and volunteers, and it’s easy for the families. Plus, if you or your members ever need a hand, we have a great Customer Service team who you can contact for support.
