Networks

If you operate more than one location, you may wish to organise them into networks. Networks allow you to organise your sites into groups that share common options and policies (pricing, tax details and so on). They are particularly useful where you operate sites within different tax or legal jurisdictions. For example, if you operate sites in the United States and Canada, you might define a network for each of these countries, with a different configuration according to the pricing plans, offers, tax rates and so on that you apply in each.

Sites within a network can share the following elements, allowing you to apply a consistent configuration among those sites:

Element

Notes

Products

You can sell a product to a customer in any of your sites, even when the product was defined in another account

Plans

You can add a contract to a customer, no matter which of your sites that contract was issued in. This is true even when the plan the contract is for is linked in another account

Passes

Passes assigned to a network account are valid in all child locations within that network, unless you choose to restrict them to a subset of the network

Tax rates

Tax rates from one location in a network can be assigned to items in any other location

Financial accounts

Financial accounts from one location in a network can be assigned to items in any other location

In the members' portal, publishing products, plans, events or news articles in a network account will show these elements in every child account in that network.

Networks can be nested, allowing you to manage your site settings in a way that is most useful to you. For example, you could have a network for each country you operate in, and, within each country, a network for each region, state, or city.

Networks are a useful way to organise multiple spaces, but they are not mandatory, even if you operate multiple sites. If you don't want to use networks, then you don't have to.

Setting up a network

If you would like networks in your account, we can define them for you, based on your requirements. If you would like us to do this, please contact us with your requirements.
