Your Annual Fee
You only pay for the resources you use. These are: the people in your database (i.e. the online version of your contact list), the signups people do (e.g. volunteer for a phonathon, reserve a tennis court), and Email Announcement recipients.
Charges accrue as follows:
If you like, determine your own fee:
After you adopt PRESTO (click here), you are entitled to a free 90 minute phone consultation. During this conversation, we will setup your group and first event, and/or answer any questions you have. We offer this free consultation and our free ad hoc support because we are committed to your success. Of course, we also hope that you will share your success with other groups.
To take advantage of this service, just email email@example.com some times you can meet. We will reply with when you should call and what number you should call. (If you prefer that we call you, just let us know that in your email).
If you know what you want, we can usually setup your group and first event in less than an hour. Taking the guided tour and/or reading the following material might help you settle on what you want.
Example Book Sale Announcement
Reviewing your last event announcement or creating a draft of your next one is a good way to prepare for the setup consultation. For example, an announcement like the following makes setup a breeze:
Dear Friends of the Library,
Can you volunteer a bit of your valuable time at the February 5-6 Book Sale? If so, please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) which schedule item(s) you'd like to do.
BOOK SALE JOBS:
SALE SET-UP: Thursday, Feb. 4
BOOK SALE: Friday, Feb 5
BOOK SALE: Saturday morning, Feb 6
BOOK SALE: Saturday afternoon, Feb 6
The more things you decide ahead of time the better, but we will help you choose whatever you are unsure about.
Long-term Direct Access to Events
You can keep around events for 5 years for FREE. After that, an event is archived. This means PRESTO will automatically remove the event, its schedules, and its signups from your database and email you an Export file for the event. You may re-import the event at any time (e.g. to do a special long term report), but it will be automatically removed again in a week.
You may setup a longer dont-archive period. If you do, each whole year of extra storage is 2/10 of a cent for each schedule item and signup in the event. For example, if you run 4 events per year, and each event has 100 signups spread across 25 schedule items, then each extra year you keep these events around will cost you 4*125*$.002 = $1.00.
We will bill you at the end of your fiscal year for any long-term event storage you have setup.
Send us email if you are interested in contracting for any of these services. We will contact you, discuss what you want, and then email you a statement of the planned work and its price. The prices we quote are based on a labor rate of $100/hour.
Before the work starts, a non-refundable payment of 50% of our price is required. The balance will be billed upon completion of the work.
Basic ad hoc training is provided for free as part of Support.
If your group needs more focused help, a phone training session can be arranged — with an agenda of your choice. Also on-site training, which would include trip expenses, can be contracted for on a case-by-case basis.
This includes things like:

At our discretion, we can make such changes available to everyone.
Your fiscal year starts on the date you adopted PRESTO. You will be sent a usage report at the end of each quarter there is anything to report. If your total Amount Due is less than $5, it will be rolled into your next bill. Otherwise there will be a Pay Now button in your quarterly report.
When you click on the Pay Now button, the PayPal payment page will be displayed. If you have a PayPal account, login and pay from it or via your saved credit card info. Otherwise click on the Don't have account line and pay by entering your credit card info. Either way, PayPal guarantees the security of the transaction, and none of your financial information is made available to prestogem.com.
You only need to pay if you plan to continue using PRESTO. However, to prevent accidental disablements, we do remind you about what you owe. Conversely after 28 days, we will not trouble you any further.
