Selling and Tracking Memberships #

Open the Sales screen. Follow the video instructions to sell a membership and set up billing:

Recurring Billing #

When you sell a membership in the Sales screen, Insight will prompt you to set up a recurring billing for that membership automatically. You also have the option to add a standalone recurring billing that is not linked to a membership. Please note that Insight does not have the capability to prorate automatically and any prorating must be done manually.

NOTE: Although recurring billings are set to bill the client on a certain day of the month, you have to run the billing utility on that day for the clients to be billed. See Section 3.2 for details.

Adding a standalone recurring billing #

Please note that these instructions are for a recurring billing that is not linked to a membership. To learn how to sell a membership with a recurring billing, see Section 2.

  1. Go to the Clients screen.
  2. Choose the client you’d like to add a billing for.
  3. Click on the Rec. Payments tab (top-right).
  4. Click Add Billing (bottom-right).

You will see this screen pop-up:

  1. Choose an existing card on file or select Add New (it will prompt you to store their card after you click ‘Add’ at the bottom).
  2. Choose a description for the charge.
  3. Set the payment amount and what taxes will be applied.
  4. Choose the date that the billing will start.
  5. Choose the billing frequency and the day that they will be billed.
  6. Choose when the billing will end.
  7. Click Add when finished to save the billing.

Running Recurring Billing #

Insight does not bill clients automatically on their billing date. The reason for this is so that if a billing is declined, you will be aware and able to contact the client to rectify the issue in order to bill them successfully. Insight will automatically generate the list of clients who need to be billed. Follow these steps to run your billings:

  1. Go to Utilities → Management → Bill Recurring Payments.
  2. Insight will load the payments that are due on today’s date as well as any past payments that are still outstanding.recurring billing
  3. Click Run Billings to charge the people in the list. You will see the outcome under the Success column.
  4. If you have any unsuccessful billings, Insight will show a date under the Try Again On column. This is when the client will pop back up in this screen to attempt the billing again.
  5. If you’d like to try the declined billing again right away, you can go to: Clients → Select client name → Rec. Payments → Actions → Pay Now.
