Accessing the Tool

Online Member Statements and Payments may be located in several places on the website. The most common placement is in the Quicklinks on the member home page, which is usually titled Online Statement, Member Statement, or My Statement.

Many clubs also have a link located in the main navigation bar under My Club, or another navigational item that was determined during the site build.

Click the online member statement link to open the statement window.

To view a member’s statement, type the member number in the search box of the statement and click OK.  (Note, in rare instances where a Member is not seeing what you are seeing in this view, Impersonate the Member, and then view the Payments/Statements as that Member instead of entering the Membership number to help troubleshoot.)

This will launch the member’s current statement.

You may access past months history by clicking on the month links on the left hand side.

Click Bill Pay on the left hand side beneath Payment Center to view scheduled payments.

The Bill Pay button at the bottom right hand of the interface will also launch the scheduled payments interface.

If the member has a bank account or credit card associated with the account, you will be able to view their billing information.

The Payment Center on the interface allows management for a Single Payment (one-time), Auto Payment (recurring), or to Manage Accounts.

Best Practices

  1. Customize the Header and Footer of the statement window in order to cross market to your membership. Be sure to update this often so there is new material that is relevant to your members.

  2. If a member has an issue with their statement, first check their statement on the website for accurate information and balances. If balances are different in the accounting system compare to the website, contact Clubessential as updates may need to be made to the sync.
