Wigan St Patricks Amateur Rugby League Club has over 20 teams making up the player base of its club from Under 7’s to Open Age, the traditional method of collecting membership fees was by using our Team Managers, a volunteer who forms the link between the coaches and players and the Management Committee. Despite the best efforts of our fabulous volunteers we realised that not everyone was paying membership fees resulting in a loss of important revenue and it was complicated for the Team Managers to manage.
To alleviate the situation, ensure regular cash flow and also in response to our members requests for a pay monthly Direct Debit scheme, we began to look at what easy to implement and manage systems were out there.
In effect FastPay ticked all the boxes, they were more than helpful in the beginning and were on hand every step of the way to assist us with the process of getting members signed up to the scheme.
It has certainly helped us as an amateur sports club in ensuring that our membership income is paid and its really easy to follow up should a payment fail! All I need to do is pick up the phone and they are ready to help.
With more than 100 of our members now using the scheme and more signing up each month! we would recommend it to anyone in the world of amateur sport, with the submission of a monthly spreadsheet, my work is done!! Additional payees are really easy to set up too!!
FastPay are highly recommended by Wigan St Patricks ARLFC as a Direct Debit provider.
