The Membership module is free* to use for all LTA Registered venues. You can use it to keep your membership databases up to date, stay in touch with your members and also keep track of membership payments.
Choosing to take membership fees online via ClubSpark has shown to increase the number of active memberships. You can offer one off payments, staggered payments and direct debits to your members. This is done via a authorised payment provider -GoCardless.
*To accept payments online there is a small fee for each transaction.
- GoCardless Transactions
1.0% + 20p (capped at £4.00) + 0.8 % (not capped), per transaction
E.g. for a membership costing £150.00
GoCardless: 1.0% + 20p = £1.70 (this is capped at £4.00)
ClubSpark: 0.8 % = £1.20 (not capped)
Fee = £1.50 + £1.20 = £2.90
PLEASE NOTE: from the 1st August 2020, Gocardless fees are increasing from 1% to 1.2% as they are now charging for VAT. If your venue is VAT exempt, you will be able to claim back these VAT charges in your end of year tax returns. Gocardless is building a functionality to download the VAT charges from within the Gocardless dashboard. Further information on how to do this is available from Gocardless FAQ pages here and here.
The updated prices from the 1st August 2020 will be as follows:
1.2% + 24p (capped at £4.00) per transaction and ClubSpark charge 0.8% (not capped)
