"A former consultant" wrote an entire post complaining about the credit card processing offered by MK.
If you wade through the normal "throwing money at the pink cash cow" BS, it seems that she had processed a credit card through propay that later turned out to be invalid. Apparently, even though they had already accepted it (the card) they refused to give her credit for the transaction and even sent her to some form of collections.
Having dealt with customer service at many places (cell phone, cable, dmv, web-hosting, etc.) I have no doubt that this could have happened.
I know that my wife has processed many transactions with this service and loves it. I don't know what kind of arrangement has been worked out between MK and ProPay, but often this sort of exclusive arrangement is made to offer a lower rate. I don't know if that is the case, but it does seem possible that if MK has at least x number of consultants using it, they all get a price break. It is also possible that MK just researched the best payment processing system for what MK does and set it up so that it is relatively intuitive.
My questions are:
Has anyone else had problems with ProPay?
Has anyone tried to use another vendor (notably Pay Pal)?
Does anyone know if there are rules about using another vendor other than ProPay?
Does anyone know if consultants get a price break (over non-consultants that use the same service).
