Neither do I. We rent year round. But offering discounts proved fruitless. So I no longer offer them. Other than discounts, is there anything else that urges customers to open emails?

I am just curious how does it work if no one opens emails? Ken above said he does not either. Glad you have 80% open rate.

I guess market dependent. In our market too much fraud so renter prefer to pay by CC. As far as credit card fees - cost of doing business and tax deductible. Or just build them into your rates.
