Adding a new member to club

New member can be added to club in two ways. When member applies to club via MyCats start page form membership application, the application appears for the club to the MyCats start page, where membership secretary will need process it. Membership secretary can also directly add the user to club, or add new club for existent member.

You can access the member’s information and invoice details by clicking the member’s name. Invoice details you can see in member’s Invoices – tab. You can accept the membership in this view (Approving the membership payment manually). If your club processes the payments via reference material (Importing reference material), the payment is allocated automatically. After the payment is received, the membership can be approved.

Membership paid by the breeder creates a similar membership application as if the member itself would create the application. The membership type is Membership paid by the breeder and the breeder’s information is added to the additional information field
