ClubPress is unashamedly built on WordPress. Open source, stable, completely flexible, and lets us build a whole host of features on top of it – it’s a no brainer.
Our features at a glance
A rock solid website – powered by WordPress.
WordPress is the backbone of 26% of the web, relied on by millions. We build our features on top of WordPress, rather than trying to reinvent it. It’s a much better and simpler experience for the club.
Stable, and super fast hosting – included for free.
We take care of the website hosting, and host it in our secure cloud. We add to this with the best from companies such as Amazon and DigitalOcean to make page loading fast, all the time. We also map your custom domain name to ClubPress (e.g. www.yourclub.com) as standard, and free of charge.
HTTPS (SSL) on every page
We encrypt every page on your site with HTTPS (it’s the padlock you can see in your address bar). This means that the page you load can’t be intercepted or modified before it reaches you, and prevents sensitive information being lost in transit.
Thousands of themes (or use your own)
Being used by 26% of the web, there are literally thousands of WordPress themes to choose from. Or, if you already have one that you like, you can use your own!
Support loved by clubs
ClubPress is built by clubs, so it’s only right that you get support suitable for that. If you have any question about your site, or even an idea that hasn’t occurred to us, we’ll be more than happy to help. Depending on what plan you’re on, we’ll give support by email, or give us a call!
Flexible membership database
A membership database, but not like you’re used to. We don’t just give you a simple list of members, we’ll connect it to anything. If you want to email your membership, then we’ll connect it to MailChimp, or even if you want to connect another app, we have an API for that. Make it as simple or complex as you like.
Take payments from your members, or anyone else, for anything.
Connect to Stripe or GoCardless, our credit/debit card and direct debit providers, and take payments for subscriptions, kit fees, or events. You’re not tied down by any restrictions, charge for whatever you like (providing it’s legal). Payments are an extra service, and cost from 1-3%, depending on your plan.
A reward scheme for your members
This part is new… we can connect a reward scheme to your site, which means that your members can get rewards from a whole host of other shops, like Ticketmaster or Sports Direct, which then earns money for your club.
SMS and a phone number for your club
Send SMS text messages your members, and get a phone number for your club. We can direct calls to your number to a committee member, and receive voicemail messages by email.
