Costs for wildapricot payments - James?

Must decide by end of April

We currently pay $160/mo

Increases to $192/mo on July 5 (extra $32/mo)

Pay by year: $160 * 90% * 12 = $1728

Pay a month at a time at the new rate, $192 * 12 = $2304

Pay for two years: $160 * 85% * 24 = $3264 ($1632 per year)

Payments Paypal rates: 2.2% + 30 cents per transaction WA: 2.9% + 30 cents per transaction

Member dues: 400 transactions, $25/ea so total = $10,000 mo or Paypal fees: $220 + $120 = $340 WA fees: $290 + $120 = $410 ($70 difference, or pay the 20% penalty of $32/mo)

James moves to pay for a full year, starting with the payment in May. Malissa seconds. 6 in favor, 1 abstains, motion carries. @DECISION: MakeICT will pay for a full year of Wild Apricot in May and keep using Paypal.
