Should 123notary sell background screening?

Notary Background Screening

We normally like selling items with a high profit margin otherwise our time gets zapped for minimal profits. Carmen doesn’t work for free and her sales commission could eat up profits from selling books from other vendors or other acquired products. Then, the credit card companies want their fees. And then there is shipping, handling, and charge backs on 1% of our average sales, but perhaps more like 2% of new sales. I guess background screening doesn’t have shipping thank God, but you do have to get people’s information and shuffle forms around. For this reason, I am not doing background screening at this time — maybe later.

But, do you guys think we should sell Notary Public background screening?

The other issue, is that NNA and Notary Rotary sell good background screening. We just refer people over to them. NNA offers good one stop shopping and Notary Rotary has advertising, supplies, and more. It seems very efficient to get background screening through these other companies. If we offered it, how would we differentiate ourselves from the competition? I don’t even know anything about it and wouldn’t know where to begin. But, maybe one day I’ll learn.



  1. My vote is no. Why do it? Most all title companies will only accept NNA or Sterling based upon my experience. You would have to go through the process of getting all Title companies to accept your screenings. Allot of extra work for no real profit to you.

  2. Yes ! Jeremy , you should at-least offer links to various background checks online via url or via api.
    Earnings via click based revenue. or click and convert revenue. Nothing bad.

    Meanwhile !
    Read my post on NotaryCafe.com about alternative to Sterling or NNA BG checks.
    Many title companies and even fidelity now accept CrimCheck.

    I hate NNA for the blatant lack of service to notaries welfare and doing squat about it. They just want your money and their lame email are about what other notaries said in various instances, package it and send as a news letter.

    OH BTW.. I tried to use IE and the captcha does not even load on IE and could not submit these comments
