Merchant Registration Video
Below is a short video demonstration outlining the steps to register your business as a CommUnity Merchant including how to complete all the required fields. The registration process for any merchant is quick and simple. Just remember to have your business bank account name and number handy so you can enter these details in the account fields in order for you to complete your business registration. By entering your business bank account details, allows the CommUnity platform to ‘tag’ member transactions made at your business and calculate the funding from your % contribution e.g 5% on every CommUnity Member purchase to be paid out to the groups chosen by your customers (CommUnity Members only).
This video shows the initial two step registration process and once complete you will receive an email confirming your business is now a registered CommUnity Merchant. There is one final step to complete and as outlined in the confirmation email that you will receive, there is a link to take you through to the final simple step. Here, you need to select your method of payment for the $1000 + GST annual listing fee (choose between credit/debit card or pay by invoice) and lastly you need to enter your % contribution for all CommUnity Member purchases. That’s it, your business can now start maximising your involvement from the multiple benefits CommUnity offers along with no other costs or extra administration to manage unlike traditional costly and time consuming loyalty programs. It’s just better business!
