Fantasy Football Commishs– Having Trouble Collecting Money? FSG Has the Solution!

As a fellow commish I always have those stragglers that promise to pay you and then weeks go by and the check never comes. How obnoxious is that? You have to front the fees to CBS Sportsline and wait for the money. Owners always have those creative excuses— 1) The check is in the mail 2) I get paid Friday 3) Will you take an I owe you? 4) Just take it out of my winnings 5) You gotta wait I can’t tell the wife 6) Just wait till I get my fantasy baseball winnings 7) John will vouch for me I’m good for it, etc, etc… Well, here at FSG we have stumbled upon the ultimate solution.

Ever want to call out the “cheap” and “forgetful” owners in a poltically correct way?  Pay It Square is a service that is built on the Paypal backbone. It is the perfect collection system for fantasy football commissioners. Everyone that plays fantasy sports has a credit card or Paypal account. So lets get that friend to shell out the dough on their Mastercard! Every “guy” has got that credit card the wife doesn’t know about. The fee is minimal and that fee can be passed to the delinquent players. 99 cents per transaction shouldn’t make anyone blink. If the poor soul only has a credit card he has to pay an additional 2.90 % + $0.30 USD per transaction. Still, not my problem— at least you as the fantasy football money man got the bank!  Heck, that is well worth piece of mind. It can be stressful collecting money from “people you sorta know.” At the end of the fantasy football season no one cares who hasn’t paid— the winners just want their mula! Pay It Square’s system enables the commissioners to get the CASH! How much easier is this then trying to make the “finances page” on your league home page make sense?

Payitsquare displays who hasn’t paid on your collections page. So people feel “pressured” to get their name off the list. If there are only two guys left on the list that haven’t paid they look like tight wads. It also gives you the subtle ability to embarrass the cheapo. In addition, they have automatic pay reminders. It sends out automated emails reminding people to pay, so commissioners don’t have to keep nagging. Ahhh, an automated nagging system. Its almost as annoying as robocalls or spam that gets through your email filter— priceless!  There is nothing worse then saying in January that “Mr. Cheap” didn’t pay and the prize money is 100 bux light. That puts a bad taste in everyone’s mouth!

Pay It Square also works well in other guy activities in which dollars are needed like bachelor parties, football tailgates, March Madness brackets, or football pools. This system makes money collection simple and smooth while enabling the organizers to focus on more important tasks and not being pinned down by money collection.
