We work with GoCardless and Stripe to allow you to collect online payments for membership, court bookings and coaching programmes. Here are our Top 10 reasons why accepting online payments will help you run your club/business…
- Saving you time
When one of your members/players pays for their membership online their membership and payment records update automatically, taking any administration away from you.
- Improving the customer experience
Offering online payment methods makes it easier for your members to join/book and pay all in one seamless journey.
- Faster processing times
Online payment methods offer fast processing times. Rather than having to wait for a cheque to clear, online payments allow clubs and coaches to access their money within a couple of business days.
- Avoid missing payments
This helps to reduce the risk of missing any membership, court booking or coaching payments or having to chase members for payments. The system will prevent members from booking courts until their payment has been made, ensure the clubs fees are paid in a timely manner.
- Attracts more members and players
Offering a range of payment options (i.e. monthly direct debit) opens up your club to a wider client group.
- Eliminate carbon footprint
Saving time heading to the bank to deposit the checks and cash and reduce paper.
- Quick and easy setup
Both GoCardless and Stripe are quick and easy to set up, we also have some great support guides to help you through the process.
- Secure and reliable
Online payments offer the best security for transactions. Banks and large companies use technology such as encryption to keep clients’ details safe. This isn’t possible with other transaction methods.
- Immediate confirmation
As soon as a member/player joins and pays online their profile is updated accordingly, this isn’t the case if you’re only accepting offline payment methods.
- Convenient storage of data
Keep track of your members and players details and payment records all in one place so you’re not reliant on one person at your club.
Did you know? Debit card payments account for 44% of all payments in the UK which demonstrate how important it is tennis clubs and coaches offer the ability for their players and customers to pay in this way.
