    5% in 10 days does the job for me. You give options and time and they'll be screwing with you and not making decisions. They take 10% even if they don't respond on time. 10% is too much to give them anyhow.

    i give 10% off if paid in full by march 15. the only other choice they have is to pay half by 3/15, and the balance by 6/15, with no discount.

    I use 7% by March 1. Which is probably to much. In the past I have received about 15% of income this way for the year.

    they almost always choose to prepay and save 10%

    i usually receive about 25% of my annual fees via prepay. then, in august or so, i wish i hadn't offered prepay, because the money gets tight.
    but, it gets me out of whatever debt i incurred over the winter. like this winter without snow in the plains states, it's tough to make ends meet.

    :blob3: Whats up Ant? i go with 10% if paid in full by march 1 and 5% if paid by march 15. Tony
     
  9. 7% max

    5% mid

    3% for the low end

    only use one.

    Better yet give em a TGCL scam get $20 off pre pay for the year.

    They see the $20 before they have to figure what % are.
