3) No long term contracts. We open and close events based on the organizations needs without entering into contracts.
4) Spire Payment Solutions are turnkey solutions. When our boxes arrive, they will have your specifically configured netbooks ready for your use.
5) When your event is over, all you will need to do is place the systems back in the boxes and send them back to us using the preprinted return UPS labels.

Step 1) Contact Spire Payment Solutions and we will explore what solution will best meet your event needs. (Please allow at least a 6-8 week lead time in scheduling your event)

Step 2) Spire Payment Solutions will send you our starter application which provides us with some basic business information to establish your account.

Step 3) After the application has been processed, Spire will send you the final agreement documents.

Step 4) 10 days prior to your event, Spire will UPS your equipment to you configured and ready to go.
