Equivent offers Barrel Racers the convenience of being able to securely enter many of the races currently featured on www.ebarrelracing.com. When they submit their entries online, they receive a receipt with an order # insuring that their entry was placed and received by the producer.
It provides professionals the perfect opportunity to keep up with their Equine expenses at the show by using their Credit Card. It allows many of us to hang on to our immediate cash and even to divide entry fees up into several payments if desired.
Equivent charges a 8% convenience fee to the contestant for handling their entries electronically and insuring it is received by the Producer. Any Vet Outs or Entry Cancellations processed through Equivent will be refunded (with approval from the Producer) minus (-) the Equivent convenience fee. In the case where the Producer takes on the Credit Card processing fee and the contestant doesn’t pay any convenience fee then the Producers’ Rules for their event will prevail on Vet/Medical releases.
The beauty of the service on the Producer’s side is that they receive an email of all the online entries (with relevant entry information) without ever having to physically process those entries. We can also provide a rooster so the producers can check in and keep an eye on the number of electronic entries coming in at any time. An excel file will be provided once books close on the event. Entry fees are then transferred to the Producer via, wire transfer (wire transfers cost $15) or check.
Since Equivent is providing the service as a alternative for Contestants the Producers don’t pay any merchant fees, Equivent takes on the Merchant fees. Producers will also have the option to receive late entries up until four days prior to the Event. This service will work hand in hand with the current method of paper entries.
