247Toolset is awfully close to having the ability to process payments. Each client will have the option of the following payment methods:
That's a big deal, especially when coupled with the fundraising module.
- Online Credit Card processing (via Authorize.net)
- Mobile Credit Card processing (via Intuit's GoPayment)
- And good ol' checks, manually received and entered
I was asked if we'll skim a fee off the service we provide through our framework...
Nope. Not a dime. Our clients will process payments at cost. All of our revenue will come through the $19.95 a month we charge for the framework.
After hearing that, one political strategist said, "You'll beat everyone - no one will be able to compete with you."
Yes, that's correct. My intention is to own the market fully. Which market? Every organization that needs to coordinate and manage its members... which is, well, every organization.
Payment processing will be available for events, membership dues, donations, and perhaps items sold by the organization.
Should be wrapped up in three weeks.
