Who pays the fees with MemberHub?
All convenience fee charges are paid by the payer, not out of the proceeds of the PTA. The PTA does NOT incur the cost of the convenience fees.
How are the PTA dues routed electronically?
Upon electronic receipt of payment of any PTA dues, the portion that goes to the state PTA is automatically routed to their account and the amount to your local PTA is routed to your checking account. All donations go directly to your PTA. The PTA member record is also updated real-time so sending checks to the state PTA is a thing of the past when payments are received electronically!
