St Chad's Broomfield is the oldest and claims to be the biggest and best club in Headingley!
Leaving Yorkshire CCC aside, they certainly have made strides in increasing their membership by embracing Pitchero Payments and allowing their members to pay their annual subscription online.
How did it help them?
Before adopting Pitchero Payments, St Chad's collected money like most clubs, by cheque or cash, given directly to a club official.
And like most clubs this was a time consuming and stressful task, requiring diligent club members and officials.
At the start of the 2014 season, St Chad's decided now was the time to make a change and moved all of their club payments online - using the Pitchero Payments feature.
Having set up a number of payments products; St Chad's are now collecting membership fees, sponsorship money, fees for winter nets and charitable donations, all through their club website.
Paul Berry, St Chad's Webmaster, is delighted with the new feature.
“Really easy to set up and our members are finding it easy to use. This is now our preferred option for payments at the club!”.
One of the best things about Pitchero Payments is that members can pay any time 24/7!
There is no waiting, missed cheques or forgotten subs. Just one web page, open and accessible 24/7 from a computer, smart phone or tablet.
Plus, with live real-time reporting, the club can instantly see which members have and have not paid.
“It helps that members can pay in instalments instead of paying in one lump sum."
St Chad's has also managed to use the Pitchero Payments to offer their members a degree of flexibility in paying their membership.
Offering a recurring payment option has made the fee more manageable over the course of the season, and with no extra management required by the club.
