Joining JAMKO has renewed

Obtaining JAMKO’s membership, getting a student card and renewing membership sticker have renewed. From now on students can join JAMKO via JAMKO’s webshop at Kide.App.

The New webshop is a modern, safe and extensive system to serve students even with other Student Unions in different cities. In addition to JAMKO’s membership, students can purchase event tickets and other products from JAMKO’s webshop in the future.

The most significant difference is the change of passwords, payment methods and digital student card. In addition students can collect their membership stickers from certain Student Unions in different cities. 

Purchases at JAMKO’s webshop in Kide.App require signing in. Students can use existing KideApp – credentials, make new ones to the app or use their Facebook – passwords.

All payments are done only in the webshop by submitting your debit or credit card details or using MobilePay. Also new payment methods Pivo and online bank payment will be available later in the Autumn. The memberships can not be paid at JAMKO member service points.  

In addition to their actual student card JAMKO members can get a digital student card via Pivo – application. With Pivo students can identify as student, get discounts, pay online and use handy services. In order to get the digital student card, student needs to obtain JAMKO membership first. Pivo application requires a Finnish personal identity code. Read more about Pivo

Due to a joint membership register, JAMKO members can collect their semester stickers from certain Student Unions’ member services in different cities, after they have paid their membership in JAMKO’s webshop. These student Unions are ASK, Helga, HUMAKO, Laureamko, O’Diako and TUO
