Once your clients start doing business with you, ServiceChannel charges all providers a nominal usage fee for each approved invoice (one percent (1%) per approved invoice, but no more than two dollars ($2.00) per approved invoice). These small fees help us bring you Provider Automation, our mobile application, and various benefits and services.
