Northland gym in NZ now offering flexible payments, thanks to Debitsuccess
Regional Sport Trust, Sport Northland (New Zealand) has joined forces with Debitsuccess, the country’s leading billing solution company, to offer members payment plans as an alternative method of paying. The alliance sees members able to pay for a Sport Northland, Kensington Fitness membership in regular instalments across any day and any frequency, rather than in one lump sum.
Henrietta Sakey, ASB Leisure Centre Manager, Sport Northland says flexible payments means more options for members.
“Sport Northland’s core purpose is ‘Enriching lives through sport’ and endeavours to entice people into sport and recreation through all its areas of operation – having another payment choice makes memberships more affordable, giving individuals a greater opportunity to get out and get active,” says Ms Sakey.
“The partnership with Debitsuccess has also made a considerable difference to the pressure on our team. Instead of chasing membership payments; we’re focusing on making Sport Northland’s Kensington Fitness even better.”
Serving a population of over 77,000, Kensington Fitness offers a range of classes from Tai Chi to Body Attack and is home to other facilities including a café, physio, childcare, the latest cardio equipment and the largest gym floor in the region.
“Support in setting up the payment solution system has been very helpful and while the process has taken a little while we are just about there, says Ms Sakey. “While the service is relatively new for us, being able to offer flexible weekly payment options has definitely made memberships easy to sell because of increased choices around affordability.”
Jesse Harris, National Sales Manager, Debitsuccess says the approach is a win-win for both organisations and makes life easier for members.
“Offering an instalment approach makes memberships even more accessible to an increasing number of individuals, thanks to greater flexibility and affordability.”
With an integrated credit control offering and a commitment to data security, Debitsuccess is the only full-service payment processor in New Zealand. The organisation is part of Transaction Services Group (TSG), a leading global payment solutions provider with a presence in Australasia, the United Kingdom and the United States.
