SBPS is purely built to share information and help facilitate your contests.

As a core facet of that fundamental mission, SBPS has absolutely nothing to with the collection of entry fees or the disbursement of prize money. It is entirely up to each commissioner to use external tools to engage in any desired financial transactions.

Note: This is a repeat of the answer above regarding entry fee collection.

Please see above answers regarding the SBPS role in financial transactions.

While SBPS does not directly handle finances, we can recommend a few popular methods for collection of entry fees and payment of prizes. These are merely suggestions. Please examine each option thoroughly, as SBPS will not be responsible for anything financial related.

All SBPS contests are free to create and maintain.

Our contests have always been free to create (for the last decade) and I don't anticipate changing that.

SBPS has two revenue streams that offset tha costs and provide a small amount of positive revenue.

You will likely notice the digital advertisements throughout the site. These yield a tiny amount of money with every click.

SBPS also receives generous contributions in the form of donations from wonderful contest commissioners and players just like you, who appreciate the services SBPS offers and feel the desire to reward us.

All donations we receive are entirely optional, yet thoroughly appreciated by my family and me.
