Introducing Cheddar Up!

Posted Jan 25, 2015 | Category: News

Hauser PTO is trying out a new online payment system called Cheddar Up.  Unlike some other payment systems we’ve tried that charged us transaction fees, Cheddar Up is always free for the collector (PTO)!  It’s linked to PayPal, so if you’d like to buy Family Dinner tickets, for instance, you can pay via your PayPal account and you won’t incur any fees.  If you don’t have a PayPal account, don’t worry, you can use a credit/debit card and only incur a small fee (2.9% + 30¢ per transaction).  Of course, you’ll still be able to make traditional cash or check payments.

The good news is that we can accept online payments without incurring fees that dip into our profits!! Look for a Cheddar Up link in conjunction with our upcoming fundraiser. If you have any questions about this, please contact Carol Barlow at carol377@att.net.
