Add The Club To Your Site

Once you have created your clubs on the admin panel you will want to create your club page on the frontend of your website to showcase your clubs and allow customers to sign up. The following video will show you how to setup your club page and link it to the club signup forms that are automatically generated by the Vin65 platform:

 

To add the club you just set up to your site, you need to link a picture, button, text, etc. to the marketing URL for the club. And example of this is on our demo site, Pine Wine’s club page: /clubs/Red-Club. The marketing URL (found in the 'Marketing' tab of in the club set up screen) is /clubs/Red-Club. Your marketing URL will be different, so make sure you copy and paste correctly. Also important, you need to have a "/" before your marketing URL otherwise the link will break. If you forget the '/' you will receive a 404 error page or web browser error message.

Welcome Package

You have the option to add a Welcome Package to the club for your new members by selecting Has Welcome Package from the Welcome Package drop down menu.

Shipping From the drop down menu, you can select Use a System Shipping Rate. Shipping Rates can be created through the Shipping section of your admin panel. If Use a Flat Rate is selected, an additional field will appear that will allow you to input a dollar amount for the shipping cost.
Shipping Strategy From the drop down menu, you can select a Shipping Strategy that you have in place.
Shipping Type Once you've selected a Shipping Strategy, you will see Shipping Type options appear from the drop down menu that correspond to the Shipping Strategy chosen.
Allow Gift Cards on Welcome Package If this box is checked, your customers will be able to use a Gift Card to pay for the Welcome Package.
Allow Coupons On Welcome Package If this box is checked, your customers will be able to use any Promos/Coupons that are applicable towards the shipping or product costs within the Welcome Package. Promos will only apply on the Welcome Package if the price of the products within the Welcome Package has not been overridden or modified from the default retail price when setting up the package. 
Add Item Click this button to search for active products that you would like included within the Welcome Package. Once the product(s) is chosen, the Item Description, Price, Quantity, Total, and Subtotal will appear. You can delete the products by clicking the [x] Remove button next to the product.

PrePay Options

You can set up multiple PrePay options for the Club by selecting Club Has PrePay from the Allow PrePay drop down menu.

No Of Shipments The amount of shipments your club members will receive before the membership is cancelled. Ideally how many times will you ship to them in a year.
Description The description of the number of shipments within the PrePay option (Example: Quarterly Shipments, Monthly Shipments).
SKU On Invoice The SKU that will appear on the customers invoice for the PrePay option. Once the PrePay option is purchased by a customer, it will appear in your Product listing as a PrePay product type under this SKU.
PrePay Rate The subtotal of all of the combined shipments for this PrePay option.

Best Practice for Prepay Membership Setup

1. Ensure your prepay option is setup first. Check this by navigating to Store > Clubs > Club List > select the prepay club > look at the prepay section > ensure SKUs are in place.

2. In the Club Description, explain the prepay option(s) where the costs are listed. Make sure to note that when a customer signs up, they will pay for the entire set of shipments right away. 

3. If the customer is already signed up for month-to-month payments for the same club, you will have to manually cancel their membership in the admin panel to proceed.

4. The customer will select the desired Club Membership to purchase. In the Cart page, a Prepay amount needs to be chosen from the Club Options dropdown on the Cart page. When Prepay is selected, Vin65 charges their card as soon as the "Process My Order" button is clicked.

Club Setup FAQs

  1. How long will PrePay members retain their privileges?
  2. Can I have a unique welcome email for each club?

How long will PrePay members retain their privileges?

Once the last shipment for the PrePay membership is processed, the PrePay membership will be cancelled. As a result, the membership privileges associated with the account will be lost. If you ship quarterly, you will want to make it clear to your customers that this means their membership during the 4th quarter (not necessarily after 1 year).

Can I have a unique welcome email for each club?

Yes. Vin65 has one default club signup confirmation email. However, you may create new general email documents, and select those from the 'Email' field of the general information area when setting up the club. If you do not see the email drop down option you will need to reach out to support@vin65.com to have that enabled.
