Long-Term Contracts For Event Payment Processing Eliminated!

Northwest Software Technologies, Inc. and No Late Payments, LLC. partner to deliver an Internet-based, card-present processing solution and eliminates long-term contractual obligations.

Everett, WA (June 29, 2011) - Northwest Software Technologies, Inc.r, the pioneering and leading developer of event fundraising management software, designed specifically for non-profit organizations, announced today that it has partnered with No Late Payments, LLC of Boise, Idaho (NLP) to expand it's service offerings with the addition of Internet-Based card-present processing.

"For many nonprofit organizations, card processing is unfortunately consuming a significant percentage of their event budget. Much of this cost comes from the contractual agreement: account aggregation, annual fees, monthly fees, percentage service fees based on how much you process and more", stated Jack Wilson, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of Northwest Software Technologies, Inc.. "This morning I am pleased to announce a new card processing service, in partnership with No Late Payments, LLC, that eliminates the long-term contract and all of its' excessive fees with a per-event agreement. This per-event agreement does not obligate the nonprofit beyond the immediate need and has no early termination fees. I welcome No Late Payments, LLC to our community!"

iExpressPay Advantage!, integrated with NLP processing, goes beyond the standard retail terminal in providing not only ExpressPay registration and processing, but one-time and split card payment processing that is approved in real time. Eliminate multiple merchant accounts and capture registration payments, event sponsorship payments, online auction payments and more from a single merchant account, from any computer with Internet access. iExpressPay Advantage! also eliminates the need for repeated terminal rentals and associated shipping costs, further reducing the overall cost of doing business.

No Late Payments is proud to partner with Northwest Software Technologies to provide the electronic payment processing reach, scale, and solutions needed by non-profit organizations of today. "It is rewarding to provide payment information management and processing solutions that roll up their sleeves and go to work, making the auction experience more simple, streamlined, and user friendly both for those managing the events as well as those participating." stated Dan Harrington, President of No Late Payments. "Reducing event participant frustration during the check-in and checkout process as well as providing an easy to use system for the event volunteers has been a multi-year undertaking for No Late Payments. This partnership with Northwest Software Technologies represents a giant step forward to achieving that goal. Many organizations have felt that they were forced to choose between relationship, price, convenience, and technology when it came to processing payments for their fundraising events. We are pleased to provide fundraising event managers a payment processing solution that combines a relationship-friendly agreement, fair pricing, convenient data storage and management, along with contemporary and forward-looking electronic payment technology.
