Monthly Hosting Fee

Don’t be fooled by misleading pricing comparisons on competitor websites!

They charge for every contact in your database. RunMyVillage only charges for active members; there is no charge for expired members and non-member contacts. We also don’t charge for family members who don’t need to login.

And our fees include unlimited telephone and email support. None of our competitors offer this!

What We Don't Charge For...

Website Hosting
It's included!
Disk space
Your web site can be as large as you need.
Photos & Documents
Upload as many high-res photos on your site as you want. Documents and videos also.
Technical Support
RunMyVillage includes unlimited toll-free support!
The non-member mailing list
As long as it's reasonably in proportion to the size of the active primary member database. (Our cut-off is 5X. For example, if you have 200 active primary members, you can have up 1000 entries in your non-member database without a charge. Over that amount and we charge $0.02 per month for the overage only.)
Internet traffic (bandwidth)
Make your web site as busy as you want.
Send as many emails to members and non-members as you want.
Expired members
Their information stays in the database in case they renew.
There are no limits to the number of people with administrator or coordinator rights.

Monthly Hosting Fee - Additional Notes

Our Competition
When you compare providers, ask if they include expired members and non-members in their database counts to determine rates.
No Login, No Charge
With RunMyVillage, only active members who need the ability to login are counted! RunMyVillage does not charge for members who do not need the ability to login to the website (for example, children in a family membership.)
No Long-Term Contract
With RunMyVillage, there is no long-term contract. Our Subscription Agreement is month-to-month!
Minimum Monthly Fee
There is a minimum monthly fee of $30.

One-Time Setup Fee

Extra-Cost Functions

The following modules and functions have additional one-time or annual fees. Over the years, we’ve built a number of modules to handle special or unusual club and association needs. Many of these modules were actually paid for by other clubs and associations. These modules are not part of the basic ClubExpress product but they can be enabled at any time for your club or association for an additional one-time setup fee. Half of this setup fee is rebated to the other club or association, to reimburse them for fronting the initial investment. (The other half is retained by ClubExpress to cover our time to install and configure the module for your club or association.)

And please note that this option is available for any kind of customization. If your club or association needs a special function and you think that clubs with a similar purpose might also be interested, we can build this module for you, for a fee, then make it available to other clubs for a fee that is then partly remitted back to you to reimburse you for initially sponsoring the development cost. Who knows: if enough other clubs are interested, you end up getting the feature for free, which is exactly what happened with some of these modules!

ClubExpress Accessibility Toolkit, providing WCAG 2.1 AA Compliance - $439, Annual Fee
Making your website accessible to people who are differently abled (blind or visually impaired, motor-impaired, users with epilepsy, cognitive or learning disabilities, seniors, etc.) is increasingly important. Some experts suggest that 20-25% of the general population has some kind of difficulty using typical websites.

Website accessibility is governed by the WCAG 2.1 AA standard, promulgated by the W3C. This standard is referenced by the Americans with Disabilities Act and other national and international laws. Compliance with this standard also protects you against demand letters and lawsuits.

ClubExpress has partnered with a firm that provides a fully-automated, AI-powered tool to make your website WCAG 2.1 Level AA compliant. This tool seamlessly attaches to your website, and is accessible by clicking a floating icon in the lower right corner. See the example on this website. It uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to dynamically analyze a website page and apply the current settings to it. So once users make an adjustment, these settings are carried forward for as long as they are accessing the website.

Our partner normally charges $490 per year for this service. But we have arranged a 10% discount for ClubExpress customers.
Ad-Hoc Reports - $200 or $300, Annual Fee
The Ad Hoc Reporting module allows you to create and run your own reports. ExpressView allows you to quickly create reports that can then be further customized, or use the Advanced Reports function to create a complex report from scratch. Ad Hoc Reports also supports CrossTabs (pivot tables), Dashboards, and Chained Reports (multiple reports output as a single report.)

Ad Hoc Reports can use data from many parts of ClubExpress, including member and non-member information, transactions and payments, events (including individual events), donations, the E-Commerce storefront, committees, member interests, etc. You can create and save as many reports as you want and organize them into separate folders. We have also built a collection of shared reports that are available for you to run, or to copy into your private area to modify.

The higher-priced option allows you to schedule reports to run automatically and be delivered by email to a pre-defined set of users.
Banner Advertising - $12/month
Many organizations use ClubExpress because we don’t put advertising on your websites. But some clubs are interested in signing up their own advertisers who want to promote their business to club members and website visitors. This module allows you to define one or more panels that appear on every public and member page of the website. Advertisers then provide a banner ad in a pre-defined size that is then installed in the system and will then display in the designated panel as pages are viewed.
Classified Ads - $12/month
The Classified Ads module allows members to post ads on the website for items they want to sell to other members (or non-members, depending on whether the module is visible on the public side of the website.) Ads can be organized into categories and can include full descriptions, location and condition information.
Continuing Education & Certification - $40/month
This module allows associations to define courses that members can take to earn continuing education credits toward a certificate, generally by requiring users to view one or more videos and take a corresponding quiz. Courses are presented online with a member side to select and pay for courses, view videos and take tests, and print a certificate upon completion of a course; and an administrator side to manage courses, videos, tests and other member completions. Quizzes are created in the built-in ClubExpress Ad Hoc Forms module.
Expense Reimbursements - $25/month
This module provides a way for members to submit reimbursement requests on the club’s website and for administrators to approve the requests and record payment information for them. It is fully chapter-aware; requests are made for a specific chapter and a specific project or event. Each request consists of one or more detail lines and any number of supporting documents. Approvals can be configured for an officer or an administrator at the next highest level.
Group Directory - $20/month
This module displays chapters and interest groups in a single list, allowing members to sign up or leave a group. For some organizations, chapters are geographically based. But for others, chapters can serve like interest groups that charge a fee. So a club could have interest groups that members can join and leave at any time; it can also have chapters that members can join if they pay the chapter fee. This module was developed for a large seniors community with thousands of members and dozens of interest groups and clubs within the community.
Jobs Board - $15/month
This module allows professional and trade associations to post available jobs that members (and optionally non-members) can view. Members can post jobs that may or may not immediately become visible. There may be a fee to post a job and jobs will be visible for a defined period of time, with the option to renew a listing. Note that the module does not collect and distribute resumes, cover letters or applications. It does not serve as a clearing house or intermediary in any way. It does not provide an “anonymizing” service (to protect people against applying for jobs at the same company where they work.) It is not intended to replace Monster or Career Builder. Rather, it lists the jobs and provides the details on how to apply (usually the company’s website or an email address.)
Resource Scheduling - $20/month
The Resource Scheduling module allows clubs and associations to define physical resources that can be rented or reserved by members. This module is suitable for many different types of clubs:
  • Tennis clubs that allow members to reserve a tennis court
  • Sailing and yacht clubs or canoe/kayak clubs, with a fleet of boats that members can rent
  • Ski clubs with a lodge where members and their family can rent rooms
  • Clubs with a clubhouse that includes meeting or banquet rooms
Resources can be rented hourly, daily (such as for a sail boat or canoe), or overnight (such as for a ski lodge room). Each resource can have different properties and rental rules. The club can define a setup period before the reservation starts and a cleanup period for after the reservation finishes. Resources can have different fees at different times of the day, week, month, or year. Clubs can define a resource setup fee and different fees for members and non-members. Resources can also have blocks of time where the resource is not available, perhaps for maintenance or repairs. A reservation can include more than one resource reserved at the same or at different times.
Virtual Membership Cards - $400, One-Time
Virtual Membership Cards with Embedded Member Photo, -$600, One-Time
ClubExpress provides a feature that allows members to download a virtual membership card. This card can have any design the club wants and can include many fields from the database, including first name, last name, member number (optionally as a bar-code), member type, date joined, date expired, etc. Cards can also be made available for spouses, and secondary and tertiary members.
Volunteer Self-Signup - $600, One-Time
This module lets Villages display select open Service Requests to vetted Service Providers on your website for self-signup. Member volunteers sign in with their existing username and password and can select Service Requests from an option on your menu. Non-member volunteers are assigned a special username and password to allow them to access the feature and sign up for open Service Requests. The module also allows member and non-member volunteers to manage their own weekly and vacation schedules, and their own emergency contacts.

Volunteer Self-Signup is a "pull" model, where volunteers for requests are "pulled" in to view and sign up for open requests. This model differs from the "push" method in the built-in Automated Open Request (AOR) emails. AOR allows Villages to send ("push") automatic emails to volunteers with links to sign up for open Service Requests.
Web Services - $200, One-Time
This is a membership verification service. It can be used from a separate website to verify whether someone is an active member of the club or association, based on either their username and password, or their email address and first name, or their email address and member number.

The Web Service also makes available a JSON file that includes basic member data. Experienced developers can use this to create dynamic custom pages showing member data in different formats.

PAYMENT Processing

For most organizations in the US, a merchant account is built into the website, allowing you to accept credit cards online for memberships, event registrations, donations, and other charges. The funds flow to us and then we securely deposit them directly into your bank account, three times a month (on the 10th, 20th, and last day of each month.)

Merchant Processing Fees Per Transaction:
All card brands (Visa, MC, Discover, Amex): 2.99% + 20¢

RunMyVillage also supports PayPal. When members and/or non-members select the PayPal option the funds are transferred from the user's PayPal account or bank account or a credit card, into your PayPal account.
Direct Funds to Separate Accounts
A powerful RunMyVillage feature is the ability to split credit card payments into different bank accounts for you. For example, payments for the annual conference registration, or payments distributed to a chapter or region.
No Per-Transaction Fee
RunMyVillage does not charge your village a separate "per transaction" fee, as do some of our competitors! (Their pricing suddenly gets a lot more expensive when you add in the per-transaction fees charged for each member signup, renewal, event registration, donation, etc.)
You Don't Need Your Own Merchant Account
But RunMyVillage does support villages that have or want their own merchant account.

Custom Programming: $CALL

Once you have approved it, we will provide a fixed price quote to implement this functionality.  

Custom modules written for other villages can be added to your RunMyVillage website for a one-time fee (which is shared with the village that originally paid for this functionality to be written.) For a complete list, see the Extra Cost Features list.
"Webmaster for Hire": $CALL
RunMyVillage provides all the tools you need to perform the ongoing tasks listed below, without needing a programmer. But some villages want help performing these tasks on a day-to-day basis. So we also offer optional monthly maintenance to help you manage the following types of tasks:

  • Updating other website content
  • Posting news items
  • Uploading photos and building photo pages
