New members are created in the tags (see screenshot 4):

Installation from Safari

Some versions of the Safari browser may block the installation of the app. Then you can change a setting in Safari and try again. 

Go to Safari > Settings and click Privacy. Disable "Prevent tracking between websites" / "Prevent cross-site tracking". Then try it again.

In the unlikely event that it still doesn't work, try installing in one of the Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox browsers. 

Note! That this block from Safari can only mess up at the time of installation. No special settings are needed in Safari or any other browser for the app to work for your customers when buying.
