Okay. In our area, we have an issue with bad checks, and it seems to be happening more and more. A lot of DS gals I know won't take checks at all now, which can make some customers upset (trying to not use credit cards, etc.) So, I've been thinking, and this is what I've come up with. Wanted some input. I will gladly take checks; however, you must also provide a credit card. If your check is returned due to non-sufficient funds, your credit card will be charged for the total amount of your order, plus a $20 NSF fee. You will be contacted by telephone to notify you of this occurance. I will have a slip of paper with the above statement (or something similiar...haven't worked out the exact wording yet) and have them sign it acknowledging my terms for accepting a check. I know you can call HO and have them manually run a CC if someone pays that way after the show is submitted, so that wouldn't be problem. BTW, I have never been comfortable with asking the hostess to have checks written to her, so that is not an option. Okay, that's it. What do you think?
