This option allows you to sell a membership option that has a total membership fee, with a payment plan or paid in full, has an end date or expire date. Does not auto renew. Let's review basic setup details first then below we cover the specific details to setup this type of option.
Make sure that you are adding this membership option to a membership category -- such as Tiny Tigers or Kickboxing Fitness -- instead of making each membership option its own Category.
The Agreement section of the Membership Category is where you can provide legal language for customers to sign, agree to your membership agreement terms, the auto-renewal policies if applicable, and cancellation procedures (consult your legal representative for help with your agreement).
When users register for any membership, a copy of the agreement that they sign and accept will be attached with their registration confirmation.
Click on Step #5 Membership Options within the Membership Category set up to add a new Membership Payment Option.
Click "Add Membership options".
