Filing Fees

All inquiries submitted by, or on behalf of, companies that are not members of the Electronic Retailing Association (ERA) shall be filed together with a check, made payable to the Council of Better Business Bureaus, Inc., in the amount of $3,500, as a filing fee to help defray some of the administrative costs associated with the advertising review process.

All inquiries submitted by, or on behalf of, ERA member companies shall be filed together with a check, made payable to the Council of Better Business Bureaus, Inc., in the amount of $1,000. The President of ASRC shall have the discretion to waive the fee for any challenger who can demonstrate economic hardship.

If a review is administratively closed, the filing fee will be $1,000 for non-ERA member companies and $250 for ERA member companies. The difference between these administrative closing fees and the initial filing fee will be refunded to the challenger.
