Fonzip offers a very wide and easy system for your membership fees. A fee is simply a payment made in return for a debt you add to a member. In Fonzip, you can add debts to your members, add their payments or collect online.

Some debts in the current account movements of the members appear red, some white?

What is open dues payment?

If one of your members has made a subscription/dues payment from your open subscription page and your paying member has not matched in the system, you are expected to associate these people yourself. You can easily access these payment records from the Notifications section above. If your open dues payment notifications are open, you will be notified by e-mail and push by the system when there is an open subscription payment.

When making a payment on the open subscription page, the ID number entered by your members on the subscription page is checked for matching. If there is no matching ID Number, the relevant payment is recorded as an open fee payment.
