Member Assembler - Make a member type optional

Jun 24, 2011
Posted by: Small Farm Central

Member types allow you to model your CSA and pricing structure with the Member Assembler. For example, a member type might be "2011 Egg Share" with the following options:

  • 1 dozen per week ($75)
  • 2 dozen per week ($150)
  • No, egg share ($0)

That last option "No, egg share" has been our recommended way to create an optional member type. An optional member type is a share that you are selling to your members that is not a requirement to join the CSA -- it is an add-on. We have gotten some feedback that having to select 'No, egg share' was not a preferred solution for our farmers and there is a need for optional member types.

We just made some changes that will allow this and if you go to edit your member types, you will now find an 'optional' checkbox.

We hope this change streamlines your sign-up process!
