3.6% CREDIT CARD PROCESSING FEES:
All Membership Types and Levels have credit card fees added as a voluntary option, that will appear at the bottom of the second page of this application. This is due to our system not allowing a line item to automatically tally up the processing fees to your total on this online form. This is our "workaround". There are two options to pay for your membership dues: To be Invoiced and pay by Check or Cash; or to pay at this time with a Credit Card. The options are on this form, on the bottom of the second page, where the total payment due is located.
If you choose to be invoiced, please UNCHECK the Credit Card Processing fees line item. A box will pop up if you uncheck this line item, to confirm that you want to uncheck it. and click the "Yes, I confirm". The system will then deduct the 3.6% Credit Card processing Fees. Chamber staff will then email and US Mail you the invoice. Please note: Your membership will not begin until we receive your first Membership Investment Dues payment or Annual Payment.
If you choose to pay your membership dues via Credit Card, LEAVE THE LINE ITEM CHECKED. If you uncheck it, and proceed to pay via credit card, you will be invoiced for the 3.6% credit card processing fees plus another 3.6% in additional Administrative fees, based on your original Membership dues total. Your Membership with us will not begin until all fees are paid in full.
