Sorry, I was in a hurry to make a lunch appointment so I should have clarified
this a bit:
CP Will require a payment method (like our bankcard), so we can do the one
year regardless of what we have "made". My reluctance in signing up for a
whole year is in case someone is unhappy with that commitment. (to be
strictly legit about it, the current board could easily agree to a year, but
if the new board is unhappy with that then they are out the money, albeit in
this case the money is really not that much).
While we are on the topic of CP and money, any commission we make gets held
for something like 45 days. This allows the payment to clear, the order to
ship, and CP's 30 day return policy. This is cool with me as I don't think
we will be in a "dire need" for sale funds (and if that ever happens we can
put a call for help and use paypal to get funds quickly).
