Shared Memberships

Shared memberships provide an easy way to allow two or more members to access a space for one membership fee. For example, many coworking spaces allow members in an office to give access to their employees at no additional charge.

How Shared Memberships Work

  • A shared membership includes one 'parent' member and a certain number of 'additional' members. 
  • The 'parent' member is the member that pays for the membership and any resource reservations. Additional members do not receive a bill and cannot be custom charged.
  • Space Managers can set a limit on how many additional members can be included in a member's shared membership, but that limit can be exceeded by the Manager.
  • Additional members use the monthly free time and the payment source of the parent membership when making resource reservations.

Setting Up a Shared Membership Type

  1. To create a shared membership type, use your dashboard and go to Manage Members > Membership Types and select a membership type or create a new one.
  2. Check the box that says Allow this membership to be shared with multiple members?
  3. Enter the maximum number of additional members that you want to allow.

Adding Shared Members

  1. Use your dashboard and go to Manage Members > Member List. Edit the member you want to add additional memberships to.
  2. If the member does not have a Shared Membership Type, change their membership type and save the changes.
  3. Click the tab that says "Shared Members."
  4. Type the email address of a shared member into the field and click the "Add" button.

Upgrading a Shared Membership

  • If a member wants to upgrade their shared membership, the new membership must have the capability to be shared. All members will be carried over to the new upgraded membership.
