Pricing and FeesThere are categories of fees involved in the usage of our competition software:
The only required fee is $1.85 per skater. This per-skater fee is charged to you (the LOC) and applies only when an initial entry is processed for a skater. We believe this pricing mechanism is the most fair for our clients, as it allows your total cost to be determined by the number of skaters in your competition. This per-skater fee is automatically deducted from the skater's credit card payment when the payment is completed successfully.
Skaters may sign up for additional events at a later time (prior to your entry deadline) at no further cost to you. There is also no per-skater fee charge when skaters purchase practice-ice sessions online with a credit-card.
And, you can make changes to a skater's entry at any time with no charge at all.
(Optional) Configuration Fee
In order to properly present your event offerings to skaters, the system must be configured to your specifications (events offered, levels supported, event fees, refund policy, liability waiver, etc). Our setup screens are easy to use; however, for a small $50.00 fee will complete your entire competition setup for you.
Your entry monies will be automatically deposited to your bank account, from Stripe.com (or other Authorize.NET enabled merchant provider if you prefer to use your own credit card merchant account). In any case, your merchant will deduct a per-transaction fee from the charged amount. For example, Stripe.com charges 2.9% + 30 cents per transaction.New information about Stripe fees (February 2015)
EntryEeze has negotiated reduced merchant fees with Stripe. As of Feb 16, 2015, Stripe is reducing its fees for EntryEeze customers to 2.2% plus 30 cents per transaction for all Visa, MasterCard, and Discover payments. Fees for American Express payments are changing to a flat 3.5% per transaction. If you wish, EntryEeze will disable American Express payments for your competition.
If you want us to enter your competition schedule, we can do that for a nominal additional fee. The fee amount is based on the size of your competition. This service can be purchased after your entry deadline.
We require an opening deposit of $125.00 at the time that you register your competition with us. This deposit will be used to cover the per-skater fee on any "paper entry" forms that you process through the system -- this is necessary for entries that are not paid via credit-card.
The remaining balance of your deposit will be returned to you when we finalize your account activity -- approximately 45 days after the actual date of your competition.
