A word about credit cards.

I have had some complaints about the 5% service charge we put on credit card usage.

Credit cards are a lot of work! But they are also a convience for the players, particularily the Canadian players.

I have attempted to put notices and even line items for the charge, so it is clear, before you click the button to charge the event on your card.

If you call me to do this on the phone I attempt to make that charge clear, however, if we get off on some conversation topic I may forget, and I am sorry if you were not aware of the service charge.

I don't like this service charge, but if we were to remove it we would have to raise the entry on all players, 2-5 dollars for singles and $15 for teams just to cover the overhead for accepting credit cards for some of the players.

So if the service charge is worth the 5%, please use it. If not, send us a check.

Credit Card Policy

It seems like all I do is make comments about credit cards. They are a real convenience for a lot of players so we want to continue taking them.

For the most part I haven't had much trouble other than people forgetting that NorSoft Consulting does the credit cards and that is what shows up on the statement.

There has been several incedents where players have tried to get the charges reversed. Well this is a pain since I need to get receipts and send them to bank, not to mention the forms that accompany them.

The thing that these incedents all have in common is that they were using someone elses credit card. SO this year the name and billing address for the credit card being used will need to match the name and address we have on file for the player. The only way you will be able to get around this is to call us with the credit card information and explain why the names do not match.

When you get a minute.

So if you are an individual or a league operator make sure you understand the sanctioning rules for the upcoming by reading the 2014-2015 League Operators Manual.

Finally
