Within SilkStart you have the option to create both individual or organization plans.
In general, individual plans are meant for those signing up for a membership for themselves. Whereas organization plans are meant to be representative of an organization and possibly shared with members of an organization.
Individual plans give member status to a single person.
A person purchases an individual plan for their own personal use. They are responsible for purchasing and renewing their own plan.
A member with an individual plan can complete their personal profile and may choose to add information about their company. No other person is able to use this individual's membership to access your organization's member resources.
If you have members who are companies, non-profits, clubs, or other types of groups, you should provide organization plans for your members. In most cases, Organization Plans will have different rates and benefits from Individual Plans.
An Organization Plan can either grant a single representative of the company access to your member resources, or it can be purchased by a company for use by all or some of their employees.
To create an organization plan that gives membership to all employees of the company:
- Navigate to Settings > Plans > Organization Plans in your admin panel
- Select an existing plan or create a new plan.
- Under the option, 'Grant Membership Access To' select 'All Employees'.
Which type of plan should I use?
In most cases, it's very easy to decide: If the purchaser is a single person using their membership for their own personal benefit, they should be able to select an Individual Plan. If the purchaser is a company, group, club, or other organization purchasing a plan for either their organization or for the members of their organization, they should be able to purchase a company plan.
