Actually many senior notaries behind the back are accepting any and all rates that comes across just to meet numbers for the days earnings. I know quite a few who do that.
I don't get volume, but get quality.
After accepting a signing , If I find the time/ distance/ traffic, package size varies, I go back and ask for more and we settle for in between. "NEGOTIATE BEFORE THE CLOSING NOT AFTER."
Lowball offers I pass along to the desperate. I can't dictate them, but can decide for myself.
Just don't get desperate and bend down.
I had a snapdoc request for $45 for 100 page loan app, that said NO notarization. I wrote back asking them " ARE YOU F**NG Crazy and lost your mind and insulting notaires with these lowball offers"
I am ok if they never wanna contact me,.. I don't want to be contacted by these CHeapA $$ anyways."
For the Very low ballers, I respond back with a verbal barrage to embarrass the requester..
Now you NOTARIES GOTTA HAVE a spine, STAND UP : CURSE & HISS Like a cornered rattler, Attack like a cornered wolverine. Rip EM to shreds !! Don't just decline , but also protest in what ever language you choose to use.
The message will get thru.
