New Credit Card Field

Image
Our new and improved credit card field makes it faster and easier for your customers to input their cardholder information and even safer for you to collect and process it. With the release of this new field, we alerted customers that we would be discontinuing the old credit card field block in March 2019. When the old credit card field was removed, historical data collected from that field was also removed.  Field Features A unified, compact design
Instead of three separate fields, we’ve created one, responsive field that allows customers to enter all three pieces of cardholder data (credit card number, expiration date, and CVC) without stopping to tab or click into the next field.

The Dire Consequences of Workers Compensation Scams

Image
Every type of workplace—from warehouses to retail floors and office spaces—includes a specific set of risks. With so many moving parts, accidents happen. Workers' compensation insurance exists to mitigate the financial fallout in case an employee is injured or takes ill on the job.


 Regardless of the accident's cause, workers' compensation covers these expenses for workers injured on the job: Cost of medical careCost of post-injury rehabilitationLost wages due to post-injury downtimeDeath benefits for dependents (if applicable) In exchange, employees waive the right to sue their employer following an accident. The idea is that the insurance policy handles the payout, safeguarding the finances of all parties involved. Currently, every state besides Texas requires this coverage for companies surpassing certain thresholds. The National Federation of Independent Business gives a rundown of state-by-state requirements here.
It sounds pretty straightforward, right? Unfortunately…

Image

Recent Juice Bar Robbery Shows Importance of Security & Insurance

Image
One juice bar owner in Henderson, Nevada woke up to an unexpected surprise on Thanksgiving day. During the wee hours of the morning, a band of burglars broke into the Juice Standard. They proceeded to find the safe, smash it open with a sledgehammer, grab the cash inside, and flee on foot. The owner knows this to be fact because a security camera caught it all on tape.

While the owner says it's the first time her store has experienced such an intrusion, she's thankful for the outcome. Why? Because, as KVVU Las Vegas reports, "[The burglars] only got away with a small amount of cash." Additionally, the owner is "thankful that none of her employees were hurt."

4 Lessons Small Medical Practices Can Learn from Larger Organizations

Image
Running a small medical practice gives leaders great autonomy and control over day-to-day functions, which can be very rewarding. But overseeing responsibility for a medical office is no easy feat—especially with the livelihoods of your employees at stake. Good news: It's possible to balance the flexibility of a small practice and the efficiency of a larger one. Just keep these four lessons from larger medical organizations in mind when you're managing a private or small group practice.



Minimize Risk Like a Pro
Larger organizations tend to understand and aggressively mitigate risk. After all, one lawsuit resulting from a freak accident can set a medical establishment back tens of thousands of dollars. The price tag for a "slip-and-fall" accident alone can be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, depending on injuries. Medical offices, just like any other commercial spaces, have a responsibility to uphold principles of ordinary negligence. This means patients and vi…

Image
Come January 1, legions of people will have promised themselves to get their fitness acts together. In many cases, these promises will be well-intentioned but empty. However, a certain subset of those individuals will put forth a sincere effort. Here's how your fitness business can help those clients achieve their New Year's resolutions. By the way, with a host of new clients signing on, it's a great time to review your business insurance for fitness professionals, too.


Focus on a Goal Instead of the Resolution
A resolution can be a fleeting thing, particularly when it's made in the heat of a moment. Meanwhile, a goal is a proposition toward which progress can be assessed. Helping clients set specific, measurable goals that are achievable within a certain time frame gives them the incentive to follow through. However, within that goal setting, there are some key tasks.
Institute Short-Term and Long-Term Goals
In most cases, the 20 or 30 extra pounds clients have vowed to…
