Sharon Seller replied to Anila's discussion ATM Machine
"As a client, I would be upset with the ATM because then I would incur fees for using it which would add another 3.00 - 5.00 to what I already paid for the massage.  I accept CC's and just absorb the cost of the fees.  I would…"

Prodigy vs Square

I have been using Square for some time now and love it.  Easy breezy!  I have a salesperson with Prodigy offering 1.45% on CC transactions vs 2.75% I currently pay with Square.  Says Prodigy is ENV compliant; says Square is not (yet).  Has anyone had any experience with Prodigy and if so, what is your opinion of it?  Sounds like a no brainer but you know what they say about if it looks to good to be true . . . . .Thanks for any input you can give me.  See More

Sharon, Sorry that the link was posted below. ooops

Please help me compile this information. I'd like more than a 1,000 if possible. Sure it is!
Your participation is MOST appreciated.
Remember you do not have to answer all the questions and Page 2 is "optional". Page two is for those employed only, NOT Self Employed!The survey company automatically includes Page 2 and I was unable to edit or delete. SO it IS OPTIONAL!
Pass it on to your colleagues too.

The intention is to publish this research to assist
Future LMT's, educators, employers and anyone else interested in the statistics of the massage industry!
I want to give you a voice to share your thoughts and experiences.

The Survey will end November 29, 2009

Hi Sharon.
Would you please participate in the massage survey and tell your colleagues too?

I was just teaching a Lomi CE course at MTTI a couple of months ago. Used to live in that area for a short time. Will be back next year too!

Thanks for participating. Here is the link:
