Membership fees

Recommended Posts

I am managing a club membership website on SS. We wanted to add a simple $40/yr online annual dues option and have used Stripe and PayPal. Stripe proved to be too expensive so we dropped that option. The way I have it setup now both PayPay and SS take a cut of the $40 (over 10%). Are there other less expensive options someone could recommend that works with a SS website?

Thanks ~ Jack

I think SquareSpace Member Areas is what you're looking for. It has an additional monthly charge to add to your site but you can customize the Member portal which can only be accessed by those who have an active membership. Well worth it though to keep everything in the same ecosystem and give your customers the ability to manage their subscription.

I have the same question, Jack. We have a $10 annual fee for membership dues to a flower society, which helps us pay for our room rental at the rec center. It seems so expensive to us to have the high % cut. I want to use Stripe, so we can be as easy as possible for our older members. From what I gather, I have to pay a monthly fee to upgrade to having the Stripe connection and then Stripe and/or SS take a percentage off every $10 dues payment.
