ListingWare and every IDX vendor in this market have recently been notified that First Multiple Listing Service (FMLS) is imposing a mandatory data access fee to all IDX vendors effective November 1st, 2013. We regret that for the first time in our 13-year history of providing IDX service to our customers, we will have to pass this charge directly to you as the end-user. There will be an additional line item on your invoices dating from the first of November.
If you wish to opt out of this monthly FMLS fee, you can choose to have only GAMLS listings displayed on your website, provided that you are a member of Georgia MLS. If you select that option, your monthly charge will remain at your old rate.
YOU MUST LET US KNOW BY NOVEMBER 15th IF YOU WISH TO OPT OUT OF FMLS so that we can remove the data and the charges effective December 1st. You must also make sure we have the correct agent/office ID in our records for GAMLS on order to pull the correct agent rosters and listing information. If you need assistance with any changes, please contact us.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with one of the following requests:
- Please change my data feed to GAMLS only, and remove the $15.00/month fee for FMLS from my account.
- Please leave FMLS active on my website, I understand and agree to the additional monthly fee for FMLS of $15.00/month.
- Please contact me directly about my options.
We appreciate your understanding of our need to manage this unexpected change in our cost of doing business. We will closely monitor phone and email messages throughout the weekend to respond in a timely manner to your inquiries.
Thank you so much for your continued business and support.
