I have been doing BPOs for Bank of America (previously for Countrywide) through their system and then at Landsafe for quite a few years. They have paid $55 for an exterior BPO since day 1.
Yesterday I got an email that Landsafe is switching to InspectionPort for orders in June 2011. I registered and was horrified to discover that each order I get through the InspectionPort system will cost me 10% of my fee for the privelege of using their system.
I sent an email to email@example.com to request that they increase the fees paid to us to make up this difference. Jeez.... with gas at nearly $4.00 a gallon and the cost of everything else rising, why should we agents bear a 10% reduction to line somebody else's pocket?
Time for us to go on strike?
