    Ive recently bought aMember for our club to use as a membership management system only to find now that it may not actually suit our purpose due to the way it handles invoices.

    We have a basic subscription depending on the type of membership you own but also there are two other components to the invoice we send out each year.

    One is a bulk fees component which is optional. The person can either pay each time they attend or pay a bulk fee at the beginning of the year. In the current invoice this is optional.

    The other thing is a Busy Bee Levy. If the member attends 2 busy bees in a year they are exempt and each year we remove this component from their invoice by ticking a box that the mail merge picks up.

    So my question is: Can aMember or any of the payment providers accompany this functionality? Can we adjust their payment options before the renewals is sent and can we setup the renewal to have optional extras on top of the basic subscription?

    Unfortunately, aMember cannot handle this and most payprocessors do not support this mode. Once recurring subscription is started, you cannot change subscription terms.

    What about the coupons? Could we perhaps charge the highest rate for everything and dish out coupon codes to those who wish to not pay for the extras? Can we have more than one coupon code per transaction?

    For example.... Charge everyone for everything and have a coupon code (that is available to everyone) to discount the bulk fees and another coupon code that discounts the busy bee levy that we only give to those that qualify?

    Would aMember handle this?
