Auto-Pay versus Paying Online

You have 3 options when paying dues and fees with your credit card.
1. You can call any administrative staff person to pay your invoices over the phone. 2. You can go to the MANAGE ACCOUNT section on our website and use your credit card (or check) to manually pay any outstanding invoices. Please note - this is a manual function that YOU initiate. This will not automatically pay your future invoices. 3. You can complete and fax to us the Automatic Credit Card Payment Authorization Form from this website. We will keep this information attached to your membership file and will automatically charge your quarterly dues and fees to this card on 3/15, 6/15, 9/15 and 12/15 each year. No other charges will automatically be charged to this card. You are responsible for letting us know if the card has been changed or the expiration date extended.
As always, you can stick your check in the mail too!

Did you know...

The difference between a Courtesy Notification and a Violation Notification from Data Verification?
A Courtesy Notice is simply a notice to let you know that the info in our tax database differs slightly from the data you input on your listing. Please double check your info. There is no need to contact the GFC CMLS office. No fines will result from a Courtesy Notice.
A Violation Notice is a notice informing you that your listing info 1) differs greatly from our tax info and/or 2) requires your immediate attention. All Violation Notifications require you to either change/fix your listing OR contact us via phone or email BEFORE the noted Grace Date. If the Grace Date passes and no changes have been made or no reply is received, a fine will be issued to both the listing agent as well as the listing office. If the issue is not resolved, additional fines will accrue every 30 days.
