Captains: Tired of fronting the team fee?
Players: Want an easier way to pay than bringing cash or a check to the game?
TeamPayer is an online solution for sharing a team fee. In addition to inviting players, the Captain can assign a dollar amount that the player owes. When the player accepts their invite to join the team, they can also pay their fee online directly to the league. The amount the Captain is responsible for is reduced as each player payment is made. When the Captain is done collecting money, they then pay the remaining balance online.
Can you still exchange money the old fashioned ways, offline by cash or check? Of course! TeamPayer is an entirely optional online tool.
A $1.95 transaction fee is added to each player fee when using TeamPayer. For example, if you request $100 from a player, they will pay a total of $101.95.
If you're a fan of online services that let you do things like send party invites and manage online banking, you'll like TeamPayer!
I have no problem getting checks or cash from my team...do I have to use TeamPayer to play in the league and pay my league fee now?
Absolutely not. TeamPayer is just another option to use if you think it will help you get reimbursed more quickly or easily as the Captain. You are in no way obligated to use TeamPayer.
So, are my team members paying ME with TeamPayer, or the league?
When one of your players pays a TeamPayer request, that amount goes directly to the league. The league fee balance you are responsible for as the team Captain is then reduced accordingly. In other words, the players are paying the league directly, so that you don't have to collect money from them in person.
Jack and Jill gave me checks right after I sent them TeamPayer requests... can I cancel those requests?
No problem. If you send a request out, but a player then pays you with a check or cash... just set the amount they 'Owe' to zero in your team manager panel.
I don't want to use TeamPayer... but I DO want to pay my team balance online. Can I just pay without making requests?
Yes. You can pay the remaining team balance at any time you like... leave the Fee Shares blank, and just click the 'Pay Balance' button.
