1 Standard Features
All listed features are supported by a self-managed Content Management System (CMS). Simply put, each member with an active password may log into the general members area on the website, and into his own specific area. The exact options and information appearing to the member are controlled by the administrator or an appointed moderator, either individually or via the various member groupings. Additionally the member may be granted permission to self moderate. Many features may be turned on or off by the administrator

12 Third Party Advertising
The memberships of most societies or associations can be very attractive to advertisers as it gives them a highly defined vertical market. 360 MembershipTM administrators may allow third party advertisers to post ads to their members and collect what could be substantial fees.
13 New Member Signup
Members can sign up online anytime.
The online application form is controlled by the administrator and displays the current fees at the time of signup.
The sign up process will vary from society to society. Generally payment and confirmation of successful application follows administrator approval
Additionally, members can be signed up, invoiced and receipted via a mobile device, thus allowing member recruitment at field days, events and expos.
14 Common Interest Groups
If the organisation so wishes, new (or existing) members may choose to also join other societies or organisations. Often this requires an additional joining or membership fee, thus offering another opportunity for revenues, by a share of these fees.
The fine print.*
Payment gateway implementation incurs an additional fee, as all sites have different providers and requirements. Coconet has already implemented gateways from all the major vendors, hence little additional work is required if a common gateway is chosen.
All features marked as optional may occur an additional fee to implement and execute.
