Chorus Connection has always given chorus administrators the option to make payment plans for their chorus members. Now with the arrival of our new AutoPay feature, this process has become even easier for your members on a payment plan.
Members can now choose to have payments automatically withdrawn from their bank accounts and paid to the chorus on a monthly basis.
Why Choose AutoPay?
Never manually add recurring payments again
Dealing with third-party merchant accounts to manage recurring monthly payments can be a PITA. AutoPay now allows you to manage all your member payments, scholarships, and payment plans in one place. With this new feature, administrators will see only one deposit to the bank every week, making bank reconciliation a breeze.
Know who owes
Auto-Pay is directly linked to your members' payment status. Anyone on AutoPay receives a green checkmark on your member payment reports allowing you to quickly see the payment status for all your members.
Puts member payments in your members' hands
Your chorus members will be able to manage their own recurring payments inside their Chorus Connection accounts. They can enroll or cancel their AutoPay with just the click of a button. Members can resolve their own card declines and switch cards any time they choose. Plus, they'll be able to see a history of all invoices, past deductions, and upcoming payments.
How AutoPay Works
System Option to Enable AutoPay
Chorus Connection account administrators have the option to enable AutoPay on their store items for the organization. Choristers will not be able to sign up for AutoPay until this option has been enabled.
Member Option to Enroll in AutoPay
Once AutoPay has been enabled for a store item, members will have the option to choose manual or automatic payments for that item. Once enrolled in AutoPay, the chosen payment method information will be stored (securely saved using Stripe Payments) and the payments will be automatically deducted from their card every month.
With AutoPay, you can completely eliminate the hassle of manually collecting member dues!
