Q: How much will it cost?
A: SignOnline is totally free, and we will even set it up for you!

Q: Why do Pendle offer SignOnline free of charge?
A: SignOnline is another addition to the big club package for amateur clubs. The SignOnline system is integrated with the Club Shops and in doing so creates a 1 stop shop and market leading service to amateur clubs. Further, as player registration and Manager reports are accessed on the Club Shop, the SignOnline system advertises the Club Shop to all members and consequently has a positive effect on Club Shop turnover.

Q: Where will my players find SignOnline and how will they register?
A: Your players will register via your own club shop, if you haven’t already got a club shop don’t worry about it! Pendle will also set one of these up for you completely free of charge. Click here to view an example club shop.

Q: Can players pay in instalments?
A: Yes. You have the option to customise your payment instalments. Players can pay in full, monthly or you can choose one other instalment plan (eg pay in 2, 3 or 4 instalments). You can choose which of these options you would like to be available and all of your players will then be able to choose which payment plan they would like to use.

Q: Can we request to receive payments for other things such as clubs trips or kits?
A: No. Currently SignOnline can only process subs payments.

Q: Who processes the payments when our players pay online?
