Most Notaries prefer to be called with a Notary job. That way they can negotiate the fees. However, you can also negitiate with a text. It is just as easy. It just involves more back and forth plus waiting.
If you are offered a $50 signing with 400 pages, just text them back asking for $400. You won’t get a response as your price is too high. But, if you try to be reasonable and ask for $80, you just might get it, especially if you get back to people quickly.
If you read Zen and the art of negotiating notary prices — it’s just like anything else. If you really want the job, bit a little low like $70. If you don’t care that much, bid $85. If you don’t want the job, but will go if they are desperate, then bid $120. Keep your prices proportional to your level of desperateness.
