Hoping for some creative input on an issue I have inherited. Currently we offer individual memberships and couples memberships for our venue. The individual memberships are pretty straightforward, but the couples memberships have been giving us some trouble.
To our patrons we advertise a couples membership as costing $50. Internally when we sell a couples membership, we are actually selling two $25 memberships and putting one on each of the couples profiles. We do this so that when we pull up a list of memberships we have both names on the list. We need to have both names available as they each get a vote at our AGM.
This has created some really finicky workarounds for our box office which I would love to streamline. Our more skilled volunteers will sell both on one profile and then transfer one, others will do two transactions - one on each profile, some will take the $50 payment and leave me a note so that I can organize the memberships. Can anyone think of a better way to do this?
My 2nd and related question is is it possible for me to set up an alert where I get an email any time someone purchases a couples membership online?
