Deposit policy: Events booked at 25 or more hours of total massage require a 50% deposit to hold and guarantee event date(s). Remaining balance is due within one week of the event (unless alternate payment arrangements are made with Event Coordinator and MBD).
Acceptable forms of payment are: Corporate Check, Credit Card, EFT banking transfer. Online payment options are offered through our secure, Intuit QB invoicing/payment system.
Credit card payments over $2000 will incur an additional percentage fee. Please discuss with your event coordinator if you wish to pay by credit card.
Pre-payment policy: All new client accounts/events are required to guarantee their event date(s) and reserve therapists with pre-payment. If pre-payment is not possible prior to event date due to client accounting process, payment options will be reviewed by the Event Coordinator and alternate payment terms will be negotiated.
Payment with terms: Upon approval, MBD will accept a corporate check, no longer than Net 30 from Invoice date, unless otherwise agreed upon.
