  • Why is there a fee to import contacts?

    • Checking your membership structure looks good

    • Checking that the data has been imported correctly
    • Answering any questions you have during the process
    • Advising you how to communicate with the contacts you have imported

    We do all of this for a simple fee of £0.50 per contact.

    You can set your system currency to any of the following:

    Whatever your system currency, you can receive payments from anywhere in the world due to our powerful integration with Stripe.

    When you start a free trial the system currency is set to £ GBP by default. If you need to change this please email us at support@whitefuse.com.

  • Can we keep our current website?

    White Fuse provides all the the tools you need to build your main public website and using these tools provides members with a fluid and integrated experience with all member content held on the main website.

    However, if you need to keep your current website for some reason you can use White Fuse to build a separate membership website and then point members from your main website to the membership website at appropriate points such as to join, book events or submit feedback forms.
