ONLINE PAYMENTS BY CREDIT CARD

If your club wishes to offer online payments by credit card, you will also require two additional services that are separate from Uplifter:

1) A Payment Gateway account by Bambora (formerly called Beanstream)

The cost for the Bambora Payment Gateway account is: $49 one-time setup fee and then $10/month + $0.10 per transaction.

Bambora also has a new ‘combo’ $0 Monthly Account option for Payment Gateway + Merchant Account. That account is much faster to setup, has no setup fee and no monthly fee, however, it does charge a slightly higher credit card rate of 2.6% and a payment gateway transaction fee of $0.15/transaction (which is usually still lower than most other providers).

2) An online merchant account (bank account) with either Bambora OR another major North American financial bank provider

Your online merchant account can be with any major North American merchant account provider, however, it’s worth noting that we have pre-negotiated preferred rates with Bambora for Skate Canada clubs at 2.4% for Visa/Mastercard transactions. By comparison, most other club management software providers typically make you use their own merchant bank provider and charge between 2.75%-3.75%!

For more details and to ask any questions related to merchant accounts, please contact our dedicated sales representative at Bambora:

TESTIMONIALS

“Implementing the Uplifter system has been a win-win experience for our members, coaches and office staff. We now serve our members in a more efficient and eco-friendly manner with payments being processed in a timely and automated fashion. Our members are able to access their online personal skating calendars, details of their skater’s test and program levels as well as upcoming payments. Benefits to our coaches include being able to sign-in from anywhere to access their skater’s schedules and current test levels. By implementing Uplifter, we have been able to streamline the administrative side of our club, which has freed up resources to focus on our skaters and skating programs.
Doug Shelley, President, Skate Oakville, ON

« Concernant Uplifter, il n’y a que des bons mots à dire. L’interface du système est extrêmement intuitive, et la grande variété de fonctions nous permet d’offrir nombreux options d’inscription pour nos programmes du club. L’inscription en ligne n’a jamais été si facile! Le système est impressionnant, mais encore plus incroyable est l’équipe d’assistance technique. Ils sont EXCEPTIONNELS! Toute l’équipe est qualifiée et instruite en plus d’être patiente et agréable de travailler avec. Merci infiniment d’avoir amélioré notre club! »
Véronique Servant, Administratrice & Entraîneuse, CPA Saint-Laurent

“Uplifter has turned registration into a fast, convenient and painless process for everyone involved. We’ve greatly improved our club financials and made significant cost saving decisions because we now understand where our finances are at. Best of all, with less time spent on administration we can focus on more important things.”
Al Ogrodniuk, Past President, Streetsville Meadowvale Figure Skating Club, ON

“I’ve been looking for tools to help me track skater development for years. To have these features purposely built into Uplifter’s club management software is a huge benefit. I’ll be able to accurately track all my skaters and use it to motivate them to achieve their goals faster.”
Allen Carson, Coach

“Our club’s board was very excited to adopt the integrated website platform from Uplifter. One of the best features is the registration and payment systems that are integrated into the website under the same domain. They made the registrar of the club – the toughest job in the past – so much simpler. That’s a huge benefit over some of the other solutions in the past. We love many functionalities of the Uplifter system, but if I had to pick another one to highlight, it would be the integration with the Skate Canada membership system. Best of all, what makes working with Uplifter a pleasure, is the prompt and friendly support by the people behind the product. The Uplifter team has done an outstanding job and I would recommend the platform to all the clubs.
Tom Stachura, Vice-President, Burnaby Skating Club, BC

“It was a big job at first, but you gave us so much help that it didn’t seem impossible. The system has given us a lot more freedom having reports and programs accessible to the executive members and coaches. Our coaches are taking advantage of seeing their class sizes with current live data, and our online attendance sheets are always up to date… The website is fantastic and easy to set up…and integrates perfectly with registration. There is consistency and simplicity and that helps busy parents navigate the site… And you are always making improvements so I am excited and look forward to seeing what is coming next!”
Corinne Morriscey, Administrator, Lake Bonavista Skating Club, AB

“With some dedicated work by a small team of four, we were able to create and launch our website with online registration in about three weeks! Uplifter’s support during this was key as they responded to our questions very quickly and helped us overcome some hurdles along the way. We now enjoy a customer-facing tool that helps us capture new members quickly and easily, market the club and communicate with members. The tool will be a great time-saver for our volunteers now that we have this deployed and in operation.”
Stephen Komarnicky, Past President, London Skating Club, ON

Uplifter is a great system and I highly recommend it, very user friendly. It was an easy transition to automate our paper registration system. Within the system you have access to so much information – many helpful reports – ie financial, programs, membership, events, and a direct link for submitting Skate Canada memberships. The Uplifter staff are extremely knowledgeable and respond quickly to any request, no matter how small. They excel at customer service… which is a rare experience these days!”
Penny Lee, Club Administrator, Vancouver Skating Club, BC

“I can attest to the passion this company has for our sport, and I have to assume sport in general. In my many and ongoing interactions with their team, I have found them to be not only involved with our sport through their club management platform, but also extremely active and engaged volunteers within the sport. It has been both a personal and professional pleasure to work with the team from Uplifter.”
Norm Proft, Director Member Services, Skate Canada
