What happens if I prorate our fixed term membership fee? How does it work? Javier Vegas May 30, 2017 19:38 Follow Enabling the prorate membership fee feature allows BigTent to prorate your membership fee for new members joining after the beginning of your membership term. Prorating allows your group to collect the exact amount of fees to carry your new member through to the end of your fixed membership term. You can only prorate membership fees for fixed term memberships. Fees are prorated on a daily basis. To prorate a membership type, just follow these steps: 1. Go to [group name] > Utilities >Manage > Members > Invite Members > Member Types & Forms. 2. Click on the "edit" link next to the membership type in question. 3. Ensure the member term has a fixed date so the prorate option appears. 4. Click the prorate box and click save.
