Using Group Membership For Businesses


Untitled design (83)

The Member Jungle Group Membership functionality is a great solution for organisations that sell memberships to businesses.

Group membership allows the main contact of a business to sign up to the membership and pay the appropriate fee. The new member can then add and manage their own secondary members such as employees or partners.

Administrators can set the limits of the maximum number of allowed secondary members per membership product. This allows the membership products to be priced accordingly. For example:

  • Corporate membership with 1-5 employees $100

  • Corporate membership with 6-10 employees $200

Settings also allow the option of giving the secondary members login access to the website and mobile app. Should this option be turned on, the employees will be emailed as they are added to the membership and asked to set their password. Secondary members will then have access to any membership areas on the website and have the ability to login to the mobile app to view their membership details and member card. Secondary members have full membership functionality, they only thing they can’t do is see membership invoices or receive renewal notices, therefore if the primary member lets the membership expire theirs will also expire.

If an employee leaves the company, it is simple for the primary member to archive them to make room for additional employees to be added to the membership in their place. Administrators can also archive the employees on the company’s behalf, or unlink the employee from the company membership so that they may retain their login details to purchase a membership of their own.

If the business structure or contact changes and the primary membership holder is no longer the main contact for the business, an administrator can swap another employee into the primary position, to take over the membership.

Untitled design (82)The primary member will have the added functionality of:

  • adding, editing and removing employees in the membership

  • receiving all automated renewal reminders when the membership is approaching expiry

  • access to renew the membership or sign up to a different membership type.

  • access to all membership invoices

  • the ability to register the employees for events 

  • a dedicated button on the mobile app where they can view the full details of each employee along with their member card.

To assist administrators in managing group memberships, additional functionality gives administrators the added ability to:

  • Create membership levels that allow group memberships.

  • Add group membership products and set limits to the amount of secondary members each product is allowed

  • Select whether the employees will have login access to the website and mobile app

  • Add, edit and remove primary and secondary members

  • Link and unlink employees from their company membership

  • Swap an employee with the primary member to make them the new main contact for the membership

  • Transfer an employee to another company membership

  • Carry out an advanced search to filter just the primary or secondary members 

  • View the list of secondary members i.e. employees for each primary member in a dedicated tab in the members profile.

The group membership functionality brings together the ease of automation that makes administrators jobs easier, along with the added functionality of self managed business memberships.
