    I know this has been discussed but I can't find it. Can a host use her debit card for the whole show? TIA :)

    No...you have to use at least two forms of payment. That can mean two cards, part cash and part cc, etc.

    Yes, they can. I've done it plenty. I just enter it as one charge under the host's order.

    Me too. I have never been questioned about in the last several years. I know that when I first started I would get calls saying I could not do that and up to about three years ago but not since then.

    I had a show put on hold and declined last October because the host paid with one credit card.
    It was very frustrating - because it was a catalog show, and she lives about 4 hours away, and gathered orders and payment from everyone (checks made out to her) and then she paid w/ a CC - everything was done over the phone.

    I called, talked to a solution center rep, and then a supervisor, and then someone in finance, and was told NO by all three. There must be at least 2 types of payment.

    I asked why I had been able to do it before, and was told that it's not always caught, but if it is, it's denied.

    This is exactly the same situation, but now that I think about she had 2 web orders that were CCs so I guess I'm safe!! ;)

    Yes - my understanding was that if at least one other order had a different form of payment, then the show isn't questioned.
