Would this be a one time fee of $500 or an annual one? Would there be
insurance required? There are just so many facets to this.
Let me give you an example. I am a massage therapist in Texas. Each
state decides it's own rules. Some states even decide the rules by
county(parish, township, whatever), some states have no rules at all.
Here, I had to pay to go to school to take the classes the state
mandated($2500). Then I had pay to register for the test($90). I had
to drive to the state capital to take the test because they only
offer it there.(gas, hotel, food...$200) Then I have to pay $40
annually to the state. I have to have insurance($350 annually).
Finally I am required to take 6 hours of continuing education every
year (from $200 - $500).
So, technically, my license costs $40 a year but....
Oh, so would I pay for one? I don't do it enough. I would just henna
for love offerings. Techinally, as long as you don't get paid you are
And on your merchant account fee... If you just need a merchant
account you can shop around. Places like Costco offer a good rate. My
bank(my business account) is running a special where they waive the
set up fees. It pays to shop around.
