Memberz.Org + MPower = Awesomeness

We’ve been hard at work behind the scenes trying to improve Memberz.Org in many different ways based on feedback from you our cherished users and we believe you should find many new updates to make things easier and more comprehensive to use.

So here are a few updates released in our 1.09.0 update.

1. Payment Platform Integration (MPower Payments)

We have integrated the MPower Payments Platform with Memberz.Org. Simply add a payment platform under your Account Settings -> Payments section, and provide your MPower API Keys and store information. You can provide either TEST or LIVE credentials for either testing or taking LIVE Payments.

2. Online Member Contributions

With the MPower Payments Platform now integrated, you can start taking contributions from your members. This functionality is currently pretty basic but members will be able to see the various Member Specific contribution types setup under your Finances and be able to make a payment towards to your organization via Credit/Debit Card, Mobile Money or MPower Mobile Wallet.

Members will receive E-Receipts via Email and/or SMS depending on your Finance Settings and your administrators will also receive notifications of payments. Contributions will reflect immediately under the “Income” section under Finances.

3. Improved Organisation Public Spaces

We’ve begun a redesign effort for the various organization public spaces to provide a cleaner presentation and options for interactions with members. These spaces will now show Upcoming Events as well as other relevant information for the organization. Logged in members will also be able to make contributions from this screen and manage their members in upcoming updates.

4. Search Memberz.Org:

You can now search for people on Memberz.Org and Invite them to join your organization. This should speed up the process on getting new people to join new and existing organizations as long as they have platform accounts.

7. Improved Contributions Charts

We improved the Finances Dashboard and changed the backing logic behind our charts. Chart information is now calculated based on Receipt Date instead of Period of Payment, which ensures the chart data is consistent with our Financial Reports
