There’s a “free soccer billing software” scam being used by almost all the top players in the sports billing software industry today but this scam is 100% legal. Whether it’s ethical is a different story but there’s a lot of gray area to be debated.
The truly shocking aspect of this sports industry billing scam isn’t that it exists… after all, it’s 100% legal… the shocking part is that this type of billing scheme was uncovered and all but eliminated 17-years ago in the e-commerce world.
Used and promoted widely in the early 2000’s, it was quickly replaced by a more cost efficient model and once this other model was in place, nobody was willing to go back to the “loan shark” rates charged by the “old school” e-commerce billing systems.
But just as “get rich quick” schemes seem to reappear in different venues, from the back pages of magazines to the high-tech venue of the internet, and then back to direct mail… this insane billing scam has reappeared in the sports industry without anyone really noticing.
I suppose it’s not that surprising since soccer coaches are not known to be e-commerce experts and e-commerce experts are typically not running sports businesses. I’ll admit that I had no idea this even existed any longer and was shocked to discover the scheme still lived in the far corners of the sports industry.
Worst of all… there are still many that actually like this billing model, even when they’re paying exorbitant fees, for a commodity service.
Many believe that since these fees are added onto the “back-end” of the transaction, that their customers (i.e. sports parents) do not even notice that they are being charged above and beyond what they agreed to pay.
Nothing could be further from the truth. They all “notice” but they do not blame the billing software for the extra fees, they blame the soccer club because that’s show they think they’re paying.
The end result is that the soccer club receives the “hate” for the fees but the billing software receives the money… not a good deal for the soccer club!
But there is a better way if you can spare 9-minutes!
Soccer clubs can easily follow the exact same model that all the online e-commerce businesses follow. Investing 9 minutes of work -1 time – into setting up their billing system will allow them to dramatically reduce those fees and keep that money for the club versus giving it to another company.
