I was approached by the kansas trade exchange to become a member. Does anyone participate in such a program. I told them that I would come to a meeting on thursday about it, they I went and looked at their website. They require a $395 membership fee. And then a 12% cash fee on all sales. This makes it sound like every job that I sell through their system I will basically lose 12% of the sale to them. Thats a huge chunk of change! A 12% fee is nuts...not to mention the $395 membership fee. I can get customers for a lot less than 12% of the sales fee.
