I was shocked to find out that over 20 million people play fantasy football every year.
Most fantasy football commissioners collect money from participants using cash, checks and PayPal. Being the commissioner of a league can be very rewarding, but hounding your friends for money is a pretty crappy part of the job. And holding that money safely for an entire season is a liability that most people would like to avoid.
As football season kicks off (pun very much intended), I invite you to use WePay. Just create a group for your fantasy league, invite your friends, and fill out one form to collect money. We handle the rest — we remind participants to pay, and allow them to pay by credit card, bank transfer or paper check. You can easily monitor who has paid, and who still owes.
And the best part? The money can sit securely in your FDIC insured WePay account until it is time to pay out the winners at the end of the season.
Use WePay for your next fantasy football league, sign-up is free.
