Join It provides multiple options for integrating your current website with your Join It membership database.
One of the most popular options is to link directly to the checkout page for each respective membership type. This enables members/potential members to stay on the Organizations site to browse/learn about the organization, and then seamlessly go to the Join It checkout page (a simple/modern 1-page checkout experience) when they are ready to purchase.
Additionally, we've enhanced this experience even more by allowing for the organization's site to append query parameters to the checkout URL to pass through values for the member's First Name, Last Name, and Email.
For example, we have a demo organization with the following URL: https://www.joinit.org/o/try-it-out (in this case, 'try-it-out' is the Organization's customizable slug).
The checkout page for the respective Membership Type has a URL of: https://www.joinit.org/o/try-it-out/p5nWADCXoSWTdNKwe (This direct URL can be found in the details of each Membership Type from your admin dashboard).
If the Organization's site knows the First Name, Last Name, and/or Email of the member/potential member, then these can be passed as the following variables in query parameters:
So, a final URL for Alexander Hamilton (email@example.com) would be: https://www.joinit.org/o/try-it-out/p5nWADCXoSWTdNKwefirstname.lastname@example.org
Note: These query parameters will only work for users that are not logged-in to a Join It account (if an existing user is logged in, their user information will intentionally override query parameters). If you're attempting to test this feature, make sure you're logged out or using an incognito browser.
This feature came through feedback from a customer and we're always interested in hearing additional enhancements that we can build to improve your experience. Let us know what you think!
