Mind Geographic operates most of its services on a fee basis. The fees are set in order to cover expenses, support my livelihood so as to allow me to concentrate on this work (while also furthering my education), and to fund free services to the general public, such as educational media contents.
In order to make this service accessible to all who need it, I have established an equity-based pricing as follows. Please note that these tiers are self-reported. I do not require or collect any supporting documentations, in the interest of upholding client privacy and to safeguard personal data.

How to make a payment
Payment methods: Cash (in person), money orders, cashier's checks, or major cryptocurrencies (BTC, LTC, or XNO only). Contact me for alternative payment methods or barter options if either option is not possible. (As of September 2021, I am no longer accepting payment by personal checks or PayPal. This is to ensure that your personal financial data is safe, and in case of any data breach I would not be exposed to liabilities.)
Those paying with cryptocurrency will receive a 15 percent discount on invoices to offset any exchange spreads.
When making an appointment, please specify which payment method you prefer. An invoice will be sent to you by email.
