Give members special treatment at your events

Automatically offer your members exclusive benefits at your events, such as discounts, free attendance, guest passes, or early access—just turn on the features and you're set. If you’re not already organizing events, we make it easy to create, promote, and manage member gatherings. These events are a fantastic way to strengthen your community and grow your membership. Our member events pages are designed to be shareable publicly and can sell memberships automatically during the RSVP process.

Grow your memberships automatically

Focus on what you do best – running your bookstore – while we handle membership growth. Our platform seamlessly integrates with your online store to offer one-click membership upsells, automatically applying member discounts during checkout or following up with enticing email and text message offers. For in-store shoppers, we integrate with your POS system and provide eye-catching posters with QR codes that offer exclusive deals for joining your membership program. Based on our data, an average of one in fifteen customers convert to members, potentially boosting your monthly revenue by as much as 60%.

Elevate the member experience with add-ons

Give your members the power to personalize their shipments with add-ons. Want to offer international delivery? Easy. Want to add extra books or premium merchandise like long-sleeve shirts? Done. Members receive a friendly reminder email before each shipment, showcasing available add-ons and allowing them to customize their box with just a click.

Advanced membership management for your bookstore

Complex membership program? No problem. With our advanced features, you can effortlessly manage multiple membership tiers and products. Our platform supports membership drives (similar to Kickstarter but for recurring payments), proration settings, annual discounts, and the ability to set commitment periods that do or don't renew, restricting members cancellations during those periods. Members can gift entire memberships or individual shipments, skip shipments, or pause their membership. You can also delay shipments for a certain number of months. Use Withfriends to design the membership program you've been dreaming of for your business! We'll take the pain out of running it.
