Due to many inquiries from members, we have made some advancements to our billing system. We have added a new feature that allows you to securely store your credit card information for automatic membership renewal.
Your credit card can be safely stored with our credit card payment processor through a secure connection on our website. This means when your AGFC membership comes up for renewal it can automatically be charged to the credit card on file and you won’t run the risk of forgetting to renew and having your membership lapse only to be put at the bottom of our wait list. Please note, at no time will your credit card information be stored by Abbotsford Fish and Game Club, it will only be accessible by our current payment processor.
This new feature is of course optional. If you don’t choose to take advantage of it, then payments are still your responsibility to be made before May 1st. We still accept cheques mailed well in advance so that they arrive in time and in-person payments as we always have done.
If you would like to take advantage of the new automatic renewal feature, please follow the instructions below.
Log in to your online profile. You should do this sooner than later in case you encounter a problem. You can find the link to Update Profile under the Membership tab.
Once you select the Update Profile you will be taken to the log in screen. Enter your registered email and password. If you can’t remember your password use the Forgot your password link to reset it.
After successfully logging in select the View Profile / Edit Profile link.
Once the profile page has loaded you can scroll down to see the following:
The default setting is to not store your card, but you can now select to store your card for future purchases (note, this option does not setup automatic renewals) or select the second option to have your membership automatically charged when it’s due. By doing this you will be brought to the manage your credit card details screen where you will enter the appropriate data. Select Verify Card and once verified your credit card information is securely stored.
What happens next?
You will receive your renewal email in late March as you always have. If you have done the above and decided for automatic renewal you will get a reminder in April that your credit card will be charged on April 30. Then on that date the transaction will be completed.
Please remember that this is all optional but we highly recommend it so that your renewal in not forgotten.
