    I said no because the only way I would do it is by paying after it's all said and done, 10% of gross Deposits, not 10% of bills and certainly not 10% of forecast. I know for a fact I'd lose 10% of them myself right off the bat, another 10% throughout the year, and with another Lco's contracts, I'd be surprised if half of them stay with me for the whole year.

    Because I find contract-based customers are far pickier than per cut, so there's no guarantee the whole lot isn't a bunch of non-paying eccentric pitas that call me every day to talk about stupid stuff, etc, etc...
