This change affects many Wild Apricot members who are not using their Affinipay solution - per a Wild Apricot Team email: 

"We’re introducing a new Payment System Servicing Fee on April 2 for paid plans. You will not be charged this fee if you use Wild Apricot Payments as your online payment system.

The fee will only apply to paid accounts that use a third-party online payment system. The fee is equal to 20% of your chosen Wild Apricot billing plan.

Currently, this fee applies to one or more of your Wild Apricot accounts, and so a 20% fee will be added to each billing plan on the next renewal on or after April 2. However, if you switch to Wild Apricot Payments, this fee will no longer apply."

Fact#1:  Most non-profits struggle with budgets.  Fact#2:  Most non-profits struggle with costs.  Fact#3:  Most non-profits and their members struggle with change.  Fact#4:  Most non-profits cannot easily (or quickly) adapt their standard business model to accommodate this 20% fee on or before 04/02/2019. 

We standing members of Wild Apricot community hereby request the cancellation of this pending change & fee immediately. 

We further request future opportunities to discuss these type of changes with Wild Apricot - well before they are implemented - to help our non-profit groups understand any significant change thus helping them plan accordingly.
