Online payments is a quick, easy and secure way to collect payments from parents. Say goodbye to chasing payments as the system will automatically remind those that don't pay!
Finally, I no longer have cheques and cash turning up on a Wednesday night. Since implementing OSM, subs "compliance" has gone up to 100%. In the past we were losing around 20% of subs through not having sufficiently accurate records to know who had/hadn't paid. At the start of meetings I now have time to talk to parents and prepare for the evening rather than trying to note down who is thrusting piles of notes at me and what they're for. Parents pay online, our treasurer logs in and consolidates, I spend, simple!
At 12th Airedale Scout Group we have only just started with online payments. Within two weeks, all payments for our Scout Troop have been received and so we will be rolling it out to all our sections. It's fantastic, and many thanks to OSM for allowing us to focus on what us leaders really need to do!
