What is a club?

In many club management systems, you may have a large number of clubs, each one comprising a single transaction with a customer, or a specific combination of features such as wine type or shipment date. In Λctiv8 Manager, a “club” refers to a list of customers (members) who will receive a periodic shipment of merchandise in regular club releases. The contents of each release may be a defined package that is the same for all members, or a club may offer each member a choice of the items to be included. A club may include types, or “subclubs,” such as “Reds only,” and each club can have its own structure of discounts, pickup/delivery, and other options. Clubs are typically named to reflect these characteristics, for example, “Four Bottle” or “VIP Club.”
