Re: [Scouter_T] PowWow Scheduling
- An update to my previous posting...
I just spoke with someone from 123signup and their website pricing is
out of date. For the small size event, there is no one-time setup fee.
It would be strictly the $1 plus the rate charged by the credit card
processor (2-4% of the transaction). For a $10 course fee, I would need
to charge approximately $12.
Hmm... This might just be reasonable to allow my volunteers to register
and pay on-line for district training. The only trick will be the
payment. Since the district isn't a legal entity, I would need to go
through my Council.
(p.s. I am not affiliated with 123signup nor benefit in any way.)
