Do I need to do anything to run the app?2019-08-24T14:16:35+00:00

No, once you go through the simple setup, SaaS runs in the background. You can check all entries and charges within the Merchant Portal pages.

How do you bill?2019-08-24T14:34:31+00:00

We take the monthly estimated fee that you setup during the install steps as a deposit towards future sale charges. All sale charges are taken from that amount until it reaches an agreed level which you also setup doting install. Once you reach that level we charge you the estimated fee again.

You can pause the app at any time and you will not be charged for any sales while the app is paused. In the unlikely event you uninstall the SaaS app any balance is returned to you

How do you choose a winner?2019-08-24T14:35:04+00:00

We have a 3rd party that makes sure that our drawing process is 100% legal and the winner is truly chosen randomly. We use  random software algorithms to make sure that each draw is truly random.

Not only will each person entering a sweepstakes be encouraged to post that they are entered into the draw onto social media, they will receive emails directly with information on the draw.

How much higher conversion rate can I expect?2019-08-20T03:18:38+00:00
