We would like you to think of the Member Assembler as an investment in your farm and your members. Here are some different ways to think about the cost of the service. At less than 1% of the cost of a CSA membership for most CSAs, we know it's a great value, but you may wonder how to justify the extra expenditure.
Charge a Technology Fee
This is our top option -- by using our "Charge/Discount" option you can add a technology fee to each membership that goes through the system. Whether you decide on $3, $5, or $10, your customers will be happy to pay a few extra dollars for a system that allows them to sign-up online, keep their information secure, and make sure their membership goes smoothly. This technology fee pays for the Member Assembler.
This kind of service is simply part of the cost of running an efficient CSA. Your customers will be happy to pay a little extra to have the best service and keep their farmer farming instead of stuck behind the computer screen.
Save a Staff Member
Our farmers tell us that the Member Assembler does the work that took a whole staff member (at least during the busy time of year), so the investment in Member Assembler means you can have one less staff member devoted to CSA data entry and they can do more important work.
Sign up Extra Members
So now you have online sign up; this reduces the friction of signing up folks for your CSA. One extra person signing up for your CSA simply because it is easier to do pays for a whole year of Member Assembler service.
Sell Items Online
Use the Member Assembler to sell weekly "extra" items and your Member Assembler is paid for.
