In the Money tab of the Admin Console, use the Dues Settings to customize a page for your school to market its PTA and accept online dues payments. Great news: since the payments are processed by Heartland there is no need to use personal social security numbers! Using this function has the added benefit of automated upload of membership info and routing of dues to your state PTA and your school's PTA.
After you submit your Merchant Processing Agreement and it is activated by the online payment management company, you will see a link titled Public Web Address of Dues Payment Page. Use this link in membership drives, newsletters, on websites, etc. to help increase your PTA membership.
Begin by giving your page a Name and writing a Dues Description about your PTA and why people should join. When people go to join online they'll see this text and learn what makes your PTA special. For instance, what programs does your PTA fund? How will joining benefit their child? Let them know how important it is to be a PTA member.
You then enter your specific Dues Amounts in the fields below. You can choose the first option if all of your dues are the same or the second option to allocate different amounts for different member types.
Lastly, make sure to click Save Changes at the bottom of the page.
Here is an elementary school's public Dues Payment Page for your reference:
Note: Please use the Add Members option under the PTA tab to add new members who paid by cash or check.
