This is certainly an issue with the on-line system.
It would not be so bad, if there were a place to at least also indicate the unit's fee structure ...
$24 to National for Registration (is it prorated for months to recharter?)
$12 (optional) for the Boy's Life Subscription
This will be collected on-line, today
Additional Fees (units could have a place to enter the information)
$XX Council Insurance Fee
$XX Unit Dues
some dens may have additional "Den Dues < $XX/year
some pack activities may have additional activity fees
With your unit dues payment, the unit will provide (book, neckerchief, unit numbers, or whatever they do/don't provide).
Application Fees for accepted adult leaders will be reimbursed by the unit (if your unit does this)
These will be collected by the unit at your first meeting, please make checks payable to "Unit YYY")
National doesn't want to add this to their system because it is too hard to keep track of all the individual unit fee structures and they don't want to collect the money belonging to other organizations (unit/cor) and have to reimburse or write out a check for it
The Units don't want to lose the ~3% credit card processing fee that would also happen (plus any additional fee national might put on as a convenience fee).
However, until these challenges are addressed, I doubt that either the units I work with are likely to turn on the on-line registration option.
