Member Assembler Plan FAQs

What's up with the 25 member MA account?

The free version of Member Assembler is free for up to 25 members.  It includes all of the features of our other Member Assembler plans with the exception of e-commerce.  This means you can sign members up for shares, accept online payment for those shares, send emails, run pickup reports, export data, and more. If you’re interested in selling additional items through an online store or running a buydown style CSA, the “Small Scale” package is available for up to 50 members and only $38 a month!

How are member counts calculated? How does that affect my pricing?

Pricing for the Member Assembler is based on the number of members in the largest season of your CSA. For example, if you have 250 members in your summer CSA and 50 in your winter CSA, your total cost for that year will be assessed at 250 members. No additional fees are charged for weekly "extra" sales or any sales you put through the e-commerce system. 

A membership may have multiple contacts associated with the membership (like in a split share), but that still counts as just one membership. If you have multiple seasons open during the year like a Summer and a Fall season, you pay the amount of your larger season and the Fall season is just included in that price. If you have questions about pricing, let's chat about it during your consult call!

I only do a CSA during one season - can I put my account on hold while I'm not using it?

Member Assembler pricing is based on an annual cost, split into 12-monthly payments. There may be some months of the year that you are not delivering CSA shares, but you are likely accessing data, doing sign-ups, or delivering most months of the year. We bill this way to spread the cost of Member Assembler throughout the whole year, so hopefully this billing method is mutually beneficial to your farm and Small Farm Central.

What if I need to cancel?

The initial contract is for a 12-month subscription and then you may cancel your subscription at any time after that if you need to. If you must cancel your subscription before your first 12 months are over, we charge an early termination fee of three months of service at the time of termination. This protects us in this pricing model because we have spread the cost of the service over 12 months.

However, if the service is not working for you for a technical reason, we may allow account cancellation without instituting the three month penalty on a case-by-case basis. We want you to be 100% satisfied with the service that you receive from Member Assembler

What if I donít know how large my CSA is going to be?

You may upgrade your plan level as you go through the season to 'right size' the Member Assembler in the control panel (Member Assembler / Billing). We allow a 10% cushion on all subscriptions, so a 400 member plan will allow 440 members before Member Assembler asks for an upgrade.

How does Member Assembler compare?

Many other services similar to Member Assembler charge a flat 2% of your CSA income for their services. Member Assembler charges a flat fee based on your member levels. In most cases, Member Assembler fees are below that of our competitors with many of our farms fees accounting for only about 1% of their CSA income.
An example: We have a farm with 544 members for their 2014 Season and their share income is $387,604. If they used one of our competitors, they would pay 2% of that income or $7752. With Member Assembler they would be enrolled in our 600-member level plan at $250/month. This is a total of $3000/year or about .77% of their CSA income.

With Farm Fan, only pay for what you use. Pricing is based on how many FarmFans you have (in other words, how many customers sign up). You are only charged during months when you send messages to your FarmFans, so you pay nothing during the off-season. 

How is the number of FarmFans calculated? You are only charged for "active" FarmFans - those FarmFans who either receive a message or checked in during the previous month. FarmFans who unsubscribe or who are not participating in a particular month are not part of your monthly cost. 

Plan Type Number of FarmFans Monthly Cost
Free  25


Text Only 100 $25
Text Only 250


Text + Loyalty 500
