Allow a Bundle Member to Renew, Not Just the Bundle Administrator
In our club, couples are full members. There is no concept of a primary member. The ONLY reason we use bundles and give the couple two logins is because WA doesn't permit two fully independent email addresses. (There are 453 votes for that. Please finish the job.)
In the meantime, we have members trying to renew and emailing us because the Bundle Member is trying to do it, and you don't let them. (We try to tell them to log in as the Bundle Administrator, but the email macro for that doesn't work.)
Please let the Bundle Member renew. If some organizations have a reason not to do it that way, make it a configurable option for the organization.

We use bundles for Organization/Corporate memberships and run into lapsed memberships when the bundle administrator leaves the job and their transferring their association membership bundle administrator status is the last thing on their mind. Allowing any bundle member to renew would be better for our finances and better for ensuring the other members stay active.

Any member of a bundled membership should be able to renew their membership. It should not have to be the administrator. Or at the very least couples should have a different classification than larger groups so that either of them should be able to renew. I realize larger groups need an admin but it shouldn't be that way for couples.

As I said, we have to use bundles because WA doesn't permit two independent email addresses. With the secondary email, both addressees must have the same email preferences. Many of the couples in our club want to have different individual settings.
As I said, there are 453 votes for that feature. Whoops - now it's up to 462 and at the top of the wishlist by a huge margin.
I'm getting tired of the constant emails inviting us to seminars about how to run our organizations. WA, please put those resources into giving us the features we are telling you we need in order to do just that.
Hi - just wanted to share this WA article on secondary emails in case it helps your situation
