We know for a fact that many of our users will thrilled with our newest integration – because they keep asking for it!
Document storage and collaboration has been the most asked for functionality to be added to the MemberPlanet platform.
We’re excited to announce that MemberPlanet has partnered with Box.com to provide a document storage solution that is second to none.
You may already know, but just in case you haven’t heard, Box is currently used by over 35 million users and has over 45,000 groups, companies, and nonprofits on their platform.
Best of all, we have been working with the Box.org philanthropy team and they have offered to donate a document storage package with an annual value of $600.00 to every 501 (C)3 on the MemberPlanet platform.
We believe this package contains all of the features you will need in a document storage solution for documents, images, directories, manuals, bylaws, or waivers.
To take advantage of this and receive your donated account all you have to do is complete this form and document storage will be added to your MemberPlanet group. We’ll also shoot you over a confirmation that you’re all set and ready to go-it’s really that easy!
We are also in the process of adding even more integrated sections within each module on MemberPlanet, so keep your eye out for our next email announcement.
Have any questions? We’re happy to help, you can call us 888-298-8845 and ask for a Success Team Member or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you charge monthly or annual membership fees it can be a hassle keeping up with who has paid and enforcing restrictions on those who haven't. The new "lapsed" feature automates this process by temporarily removing or deactivating members who fail to pay their dues in a timely fashion.
"Lapsed" members are technically removed from the group, but their information is stored and they can easily be re-added if you receive payment.
Our default settings allow members a grace period of up to 7 days to pay their membership fees past due, at which point they are switched to "lapsed". You can customize if/when "lapsed" status is implemented in your membership level settings. Some groups may choose to implement "lapsed" status as early as 1 day late, other groups may choose to disable the lapse settings altogether.
You can manually un-lapse a member as an administrator (if you had a verbal agreement that they would not owe for this period), or you can re-invite the member to re-opt in to the group independently, at which time they would be invited to purchase a renewed membership.

Here at MemberPlanet, we’re committed to delivering the flexibility and choice your group needs to succeed. We’re proud of our safe & secure payment processing, but we understand that some groups may need to collect payments in a different currency, receive fund transfers internationally, or want to leverage their existing PayPal account. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce that MemberPlanet and PayPal are partnering to give you and your members yet another excellent online payment option.
If you decide to switch from MemberPlanet’s default payment processor, linking a PayPal account to your group is easy - even if you’ve never used PayPal before. With our new Payment Processor dashboard and PayPal’s quick-onboarding system, you can be processing payments directly to your PayPal account in minutes.
Need to sell t-shirts in pounds, pesos, or euros? Are your membership dues priced in francs, lira, or yen? PayPal integration brings new currency flexibility to your group. With just one click, MemberPlanet dynamically updates every currency symbol across your fundraisers, events, forms, and membership dues, and PayPal handles the currency conversion for you if your payers don’t happen to share your time zone, or even continent!
Seamless reporting integration
Just because you’re processing your payments through PayPal doesn’t mean that you have to leave MemberPlanet to check your latest sales numbers or find out who’s a little late on paying their dues. Every report on MemberPlanet is connected to your PayPal account in real-time, all the way from your site-wide transactions report down to the RSVPs for a specific event.
We’re excited to see how teaming up with PayPal can simplify your group and expand your possibilities!
