- Point-Of-Sale (POS) for Product Programs
Thanks to our partnership, Cheddar Up is reducing point-of-sale transaction fees for our council. Starting in February, when troops use Cheddar Up’s new bbpos card reader (available for purchase in January) and mobile app, point-of-sale processing fees are only 2.6% + .10 cents. If troops use Cheddar Up’s magstripe reader, manual entry or scan card options, fees are only 2.6% + $0.30. Learn more about Using Cheddar Up for Product Programs.
- Offline Cash or Check Payments:
FREE! For a no cost option, you can accept and track cash/check payments paid to you offline (in person). You would then deposit the cash/check in your troop or service unit bank account and then log the payment as received in Cheddar Up! Make sure to toggle this option "on" in your Cheddar Up account settings so you can log and track these types of payments.
NOTE: GSNorCal receives no financial or other compensation or benefits for offering Cheddar Up. GSNorCal is working with Cheddar Up to offer this service to make collecting payments easier for both leaders and parents. By developing this relationship, we have been able to offer premium functions on the Cheddar Up platform free of cost to troops and service units and also to build custom templates and collection assets that will make Cheddar Up even easier for our leaders to use. Activation of your account and use of Cheddar Up is entirely optional for troops and leaders.
