Midtown Festival of the Arts

Posted on November 15, 2010 at 4:13pm 5 Comments

Being a resident of Atlanta I was very gratified to see all the positive comments on the inaugural Midtown Festival of the Arts held in September. I attended both days and it was wonderful seeing the huge crowds that seemed to be totally interested in the work and were also buying. It is a perfect demographic for a new festival with thousands of young professionals living right in the neighborhood.

But the main reason for my post is to clarify and add to some questions that were… Continue

Hey Dan - no problem promoting Go Payment.  I only promote products/services I know work and I love the go payment system.  My only question is (do I get a commission). Just joking.  Glad I can help and am happy to promote Go Payment. 


Thank you for your initial information and getting me directed in the RIGHT direction.


Have an awesome day

Hi Dann - not technical - and perhaps this should be added to one of the other discussions.  I don't have a smart phone yet and probably won't get one till I can upgrade in October.  My 19 year old won't lend me hers for the weekend, even though she used my upgrade. 

The website mentions, as did you, that one can access the service from a computer or phone with internet browsing.  My old phone can have internet access so I am interested in more info about that.   (I'm not sure if you get credit for referring folks and wanted to keep you in the loop) Thanks - Jeanne

Dann - should I address "gopayment" questions to you, or call the number on their website?

Thanks - Jeanne

Hi Dann... I don't know what smart phone I am going to have.  I am getting one in April and that is when I will probably sign up for the service.

The PCI fee is an 'insurace payment' charge that most of the credit services are now charging to insure against damages due to unsecured credit card data being misused. For me with 1NB the fee is $129 annually.


Now, I just need to figure out which smart phone to get and what service to go with... I know I will have it all figured out by April.


Thanks for your help,


Chip Bingham

Hi Charles, I have to plead ignorance with your question. I've never heard of a pci fee. What exactly is it.? But, I can tell you this, with GoPayment you don't have to worry about any hidden fees whatsoever. Starting this month, you can choose between the no monthly fee plan with a 1% higher rate or the $12.95 a month plan with the 1.7-3.7% rate. And that's it! No set up fee, no cancellation fee AND no contract. Tell me what type of smart phone you have and I will send you one of the new free card readers. If you go with the $12.95 a month plan you get 2 months free anyway. So you can 'test drive' it and not have any money invested except for the % rate and .30 transaction fee .I recommend the 12.95 plan if your avg. credit sales are over $1500.00 a month. You'll save money that way.
