Joining Fees, dynamic pricing and membership upgrades

When a dynamic pricing field has been added to membership fields to act as a one-off joining fee, this should not appear if a member upgrades from one level to another.

Furthermore it would make much more sense to add a one-off joining fee to the membership level itself and have check boxes to determine if it is on new application only or also on renewal and also when member changes level. Simple and easy to administer.

        This is absolutely necessary for us to operate! It takes a lot for us to onboard new members and we really need to recouperate costs.

        Yes! We would like to add an application fee to help offset the costs of Wild Apricot. We have made a work around by adding a new Membership Level called Probationary Member and made the Membership amount, $25. Please add a feature for us to charge a fee upon application.

        Please add a joining fee ASAP. We charge a fixed £15 joining fee, then a pro-rated £100 per year membership fee.

        We're using the "Multiple choice with extra charge" workaround at the moment that isn't ideal.

        Many membership organizations have initiation fees associated with the first time a members joins. The fee could be either one term of a membership or a set fee. There should be an option to waive the fee.

        Our organization does not have such fees but we have been considering using them as a means of testing prospective members of their commitment to the organization. We do know that a similar organization to ours does use initiation fees.

        Thanks for posting. This makes good sense, especially making this a special separate option on the membership level (so that it can be separate from other possible one-off fees)
