Future proof your QR Codes for Reciprocal Rights

3 June 2021

It is great to see that some clubs have been getting ahead of the curve by adding a QR code to their plastic membership cards.  To be compatible with the future reciprocal rights system, this QR code should include your Clubs New Zealand club number followed by the members number.  

See example below:

Using the QR code on your cards and in app

The enhancements to the digital membership card are all about making it easier for members and club staff. We want members to be able to visit clubs with one less card to worry about and we want to help your staff be confident that they are serving authorised customers and authorised visitors.

Clubs using SwiftPos can start scanning the in app QR code for your members in just a few easy steps.  We are hoping to work with other point of sale providers such as BePoz, and the Clubs New Zealand POS will be able to scan the QR codes.

These updates to the app are all about setting the ground work to enable clubs to be able to scan the in app digital membership card to confirm that the person is a member of a reciprocal club i.e. when you scan the QR code it will check the Clubs New Zealand National Database.

Get your members on board with the app

The last week or two has been busy with clubs getting on board and sharing their membership list with Clubs New Zealand.  Previously we have required clubs to share a whole heap of information in order for members to be able to use the app straight away, that is changing. 

The new update which will be released shortly, which will mean we only need Clubs to share a simple membership list containing each members:

  • first name,
  • last name,
  • email address (if possible),
  • member number,
  • expiry date, and
  • membership type (if not "ordinary").

We invite clubs to give your members a jump start on signing up for the app by sharing your clubs membership list with Clubs New Zealand. 

Memberships lists should be emailed to lucy@clubsnz.com 

If you have any questions about the QR codes and setting these up to work with your POS please give Leigh a call on 0800 425 87=27 or email leigh@clubsnz.com
