Subscriptions, Invoicing and Payments Option
Software to Manage your Membership Subscriptions
The Subscription, Invoicing and Payments option is an addition to HandicapMaster that has been designed to save you time, effort and reduce your costs! You can manage your membership subscriptions and payments with the same software that you use for your competitions and handicapping removing the need to maintain a separate list of members in a spreadsheet or similar product.
With the same familiar, easy to use HandicapMaster ‘look and feel’ this option allows you to use your existing membership records to raise subscription letters, manage payments and issue overdue subscription letters. Letters and receipts may be sent directly by e-mail from within HandicapMaster to those members who wish to receive subscription details by e-mail saving time taken to fill envelopes and reducing your postal costs.
In addition to managing subscriptions you may also raise invoices for non-subscription related items and record payments for non-subscription items. This allows you to manage both subscriptions and other income from members within HandicapMaster.

Simple to operate
HandicapMaster is a windows-based application that has been designed to be intuitive to use, straight away! The Subscription, Invoicing and Payments option has been designed using this same approach.
'Wizards' walk the User through the complex operations such as raising subscription letters and issuing overdue letters.
Flexible by design
Members pay subscriptions, either annually or at other periods. Although the details of payments could be applied to each member individually, there will be many factors in common. These common factors are built into Subscription Templates, which can be associated with more than one member. Once they are set up they can be applied to each members account.
When you receive subscription payments from members you record them using the Record a Payment facility.
Reports allow you to get financial information and to help you manage overdue payments.
Some questions and answers:
