Bookyoursite Contracts and Fees logoAs stated in our last newsletter we are asking everyone to sign a license agreement and fax over to us. We have  had lots of people respond to that. To those people I say thank you!

 We really need to have those signed and faxed back to Christina at 904-374-4493. Seems our legal people are demanding such. To reward those people who sign and fax back their contract we will freeze their rates at $3 per transaction until May 1, of 2008. Otherwise all non signed accounts the rates will increase to $5 January 1/2008. Thank you for your understanding on this.

If you are not please give it some thought. Pass the fee along to your campers and cut your labor, postage and long distance bills.Contact Chris Rhodes or myself. Or fill in our contact form and we will get back to you. Most of all, give the consumer what he wants or he will go somewhere else.

To our current Campground Manager SoftwareŽ users who are not on what are you waiting for? In order to encourage you to sign up we are offering free setup and the first 50 transactions for free!($249 value). A signed contract is needed and a link to your own website in order to qualify. So call us and let us show you the advantages of using!

Did you know that you can go to a person's transaction through the check in list? Here's how, just hold down the "Shift" Key on your keyboard and double-click on the customers line. This will take you to their transaction screen for applying money and checking them in.

Till next month, thanks for your time and trust.

  • No need to worry about upgrades to your system. We handle all that.
  • No need to worry about backups. It is stored on our secure server. You will never have to worry about fires, floods or theft in your campground office because your data is not there.
For as little as $1 per site per month the system can work for you. Works especially well for taking after hours reservation phone calls from your home. Also is ideal for off-site owners/manager who want to be on the "live" system at any time from any location.
