Membership & Renewal
The Membership page displays current membership status and current/previous subscriptions with links to invoices. Membership status messages will vary depending on the subscriptions chosen and their expiry date.
If the user’s membership has expired or they are within the Prepayment Interval (see below) they are offered the chance to renew. At this point they can choose to change their Membership Type and select any Journals (if available) for the year.
Katalysis Membership is designed to allow subscriptions to be renewed at a fixed Annual Renewal Date.
The system will send out Advice emails at intervals prior to this date and Reminder emails at intervals after the date.
On receipt of the emails subscribers can login and click a PAY NOW button to complete payment for the following year’s subscription(s).
A period of time is allowed prior to the Annual Renewal Date after which subscriptions will be sold for the following year. For example if the subscription runs for the calendar year and the Prepayment Interval is 31 days purchases up to 30 November will be for the current year’s membership and those on or after 1st December will be for the following year.
Any price changes required for the following year must be put in place immediately prior to the Annual Renewal Date less the Prepayment Interval. FAILURE TO UPDATE IN TIME WILL MEAN SUBSCRIPTIONS ARE SOLD AT THE PREVIOUS YEAR’S RATE.
