Everyone has a smartphone these days.

That’s why many clubs and associations are switching from paper-printed membership cards (which are a big waste!) to digital membership cards.

WildApricot, an all-in-one membership management software, offers the ability to do this for free, while also saving you hours and hours of entering member info manually.

Here are the steps to get started yourself — the entire process only takes about three minutes:

How to Create Your Own Digital Membership Cards in 3 Minutes:


Step 1) Start a Free Trial of WildApricot’s All-In-One Membership Management Software.

When you start your free trial, you’ll also create a WildApricot website. This is where your members can log in and find their digital membership cards. Your members can also choose to print out their cards.

Step 2) Save Your Contact Database as an Excel File and Upload It to WildApricot. 

Once you do, WildApricot will automatically generate every member’s individual membership card on its own. You won’t need to lift a finger. 

To import your contact database into WildApricot, go to Contacts > Import > Choose File.

Step 3) Customize Your Membership Card Template.

It's very easy to customize the design and information displayed on your membership cards. Simply navigate to Members > Card and click “Start creating card”.

Next you’ll come to this screen, where you can choose a pre-existing template (recommended), or design a new template yourself. If you pick a pre-existing template, all your members’ details will be automatically filled in.

If you choose to create one on your own, you'll be able to manually add each of the member fields you'd like to include. There's even a field for members' photos, which will populate automatically:

Designing your own template from scratch is a chance to get creative. Here are some examples that we've created to get you inspired:

Step 4) Ask Your Members to Login to Your WildApricot Website and Access Their Cards in Their Profile Page.

Once you've completed the above steps, your members' cards automatically generate on their own.

To get your cards to your members, simply email them a link to your new WildApricot website and ask them to login with their email address (you previously imported their emails in Step 2). 

Since your members will be logging into your WildApricot website for the first time, ask them to click “forgot password”, which will generate a new password that will be emailed to them.

Now they can login and access their membership cards, which they can display on their phones, or print out.

We have also created a member app called, WildApricot for Members, which your members can download to access their member card, update their profile, view your full member directory, interact with other members, and more. See here for more information and to download the app for free.
