*Placester’s IDX solution is included in the NAR edition subscription. That being said, we must pass along a data surcharge for some MLSs. For this reason, we require credit card information to be submitted when you add the free NAR edition subscription.
In the event your MLS charges Placester for data access, you will incur a data surcharge which will be billed by Placester. This surcharge is intended to offset the high fees that certain MLSs charge Placester for access to the IDX data. The surcharge is processed on the day that your integration is completed, then is charged monthly. Keep in mind, some MLSs charge their own setup or annual fees for access to IDX data. You will be billed directly from your MLS for any direct MLS Fees.

Upgrade options
Many agents choose to use a Placester site not only as an IDX search solution for their clients, but also as a tool to capture and nurture leads. Placester has other subscription offerings that will give you access to additional front end features and site editing options along with a backend suite of lead management tools. If this makes sense with your business plan, Placester and exclusive pricing for REALTORS®.
