82North Optimum

82North Optimum clients either have their own merchant account or apply for one through the 82North designated account providers (Metro Merchant Services or QOS Merchant Solutions). The designated providers have agreed to waive application fees and set the discount rate at the same level (or lower!) than 82North pays. The monthly rate for the merchant card is currently $12.50-$22.50 (includes the online gateway) and Your funds will be available to you immediately in your DDA/checking account.

One time events: $150. If your event has more than 400 registrants, Road Rally registration rates apply.

Additional (though modest) fees for nametag creation. Talk to 82North about pricing for multiple event registration.

Donation/annual giving/capital campaigns: $200/yr with annual contract.

Membership signup or renewal: $200/yr with annual contract.

OR

MULTIPLE SITES! for an annual fee of $500 . If you expect to use 82North for event registrations, donations, memberships, surveys and other types of sites (and why wouldn't you?!), you can create as many sites as you'd like for the flat fee of $500/yr.

There are NO ADDITIONAL 82NORTH FEES OF ANY KIND.

Bank Fees: The merchant bank fees range from 2.19% plus 25c for each Visa, M/C, and Discover transaction to 3.5% plus 25c for AMEX. These prices are subject to change - we are at the mercy of the merchant banks. Please note that our software requires name, address, zip code and CVN validation so your rate is the best possible one. Corporate and Reward cards carry additional add-on fees, per your merchant account agreement. If you wish to bring your own merchant account, please ask what the rates for Authorize.net as your online gateway.

82North also ties in with the Sage Payment Gateway, yet another service you those of you who use the Sage donor management software.

Because most services show charges per month, here's the math:

$200/year works outs to $16.67/mo for one site

$500/yr works out to $41.67/mo for multiple sites:

Say you have 3 events/sites for...

...those three sites are most cost-effective under our Multiple Sites option. ($500/yr = $41.67/mo divided by those 3 sites = $14/yr/site.)

Setup Fees: Never works out to $0 - nothing!

Rate Matrix

As a service to our prospective clients as well as to our current ones, 82North has put together a matrix of rates charged by our Industry Competitors. To be fair, we are putting the disclaimer up front - PLEASE CHECK THE COMPANY'S SITE FOR RATE VERIFICATION. These rates are effective as of September 2009. If you see an error of any kind, please let us know so we can make sure this information is correct.

Also, you'll see we tried to do some math for you so you can compare apples to apples. The first thing to notice is that you have to ask yourself how important is having a custom site; a generic site is cheaper for the donation, though your marketing department might argue!

There simply isn't anyone out there providing the same types of services 82North provides, period. If they do, they are charging you WAAAY more than we do and they still can't touch our personal service.
