Auto-Renew Payments

  • Credit/direct debit card information is stored by Member Jungle payment gateway via Stripe.
  • Once the member chooses the membership subscription to sign-up for they will see a screen outlining the subscription payment schedule and terms. These must be accepted to continue.
  • On the payment screen the member will need to enter their details and click confirm.  This will store their card against their account in readiness for when the subscription automatically renews.  "Store my payment details" is greyed out to ensure the card details are saved.  This is not optional. (Please note, the cash, cheque, direct deposit and even credit/debit card are types of payments are Manual Pay methods described below).
  • Members can manage their payment details by logging in to the admin area and going to the My Payments tab (see below)

  • Members can edit the card information or cancel auto-renewal and replace it with a Manual Pay option if needed.
  • Payment security in Member Jungle's payment gateway is robust (see under My Payments at the bottom of this page)

Manual Pay(ments)

  • Credit/Direct Debit Card - a new payment for members who enter the card information (Name, Card Number, Expiry Date, CCV) which can be saved for next time. Saving your card information does not make it an auto-renew payment.
