Recurring (EFT) Billing from Jonas

Grow Your Revenue Stream and Speed Collections While Retaining Members

Jonas Fitness delivers unsurpassed value in automatic EFT payments:

Benefits to your club:

  • Predictable cash flow – Membership dues are automatically collected in full on the due date and deposited directly into your account, improving cash flow and eliminating float.
  • Increased member retention – There’s no reason for you to “resell” your service to your members with every invoice and less impulse for them to leave your club if they don’t have to write a check every month.
  • Increased revenue – Since pre-approved member dues are deducted on a regular schedule, your revenue stream will grow as your locked-in base of EFT members grows.
  • Reduced billing cost – EFT eliminates invoicing costs, postage and late payments
  • Expanded payment options – Open your doors to every member when you honor popular payment options: Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express® and Discover®, in addition to checking and savings accounts.
  • Faster and more reliable collections – Member payments are made automatically, every time, on time

Benefits for your members:

  • Convenience – Members eliminate the time and hassle of paying by check, month after month- we also offer options for bi-weekly billing as this may be a more convenient payment schedule for your members.
  • Control – Members maintain complete control of their payments – they confirm the payment date, amount and account when they sign up.
  • Flexibility – Your members can choose their preferences: checking account or credit card for their payments.
  • Security – Unlike checks, EFT payments cannot be lost, altered or forged
  • Confirmation sent email to new member with link to club location using Google Maps

Account Updater by Jonas Fitness

In today’s business environment, club owners/operators need to increase collections, but member credit cards are declining at ever-higher rates due to fraud alerts, lost or stolen cards and account changes.

This is where Account Updater by Jonas Fitness steps in.

Account Updater automatically updates Visa® and MasterCard® credit card numbers and expiration dates without having to contact your members. On a quarterly basis, all EFT MasterCard and Visa credit cards that had payments during the last 5 months are sent by the Jonas Fitness Payment Processing system to the Visa Account Updater system for review.

Then, the Payment Processing system sends new and consumer-updated card numbers to the Visa Account Updater system for verification.

Our flagship product Compete, even allows you to run ad-hoc reports detailing which member accounts have been automatically updated!

Member credit cards are declining at ever-higher rates due to fraud alerts, lost or stolen cards and account changes.
