Where does the money go?
When you pay your Rantoul Press carrier, you help an independent business person earn money. In exchange, the carrier provides you with weekly delivery of local news and advertising. Your carrier is paid in many ways due to your monthly voluntary payment of $2.50 or $30.00 per year. They earn their money by the number of papers they deliver each week. They get added pay for each customer they collect from monthly and they also get promotional prizes for customer satisfaction through excellence in service and collection.
Want to prepay?
For your convenience, the Rantoul Press also has a prepay program. Your carrier still will get a percentage of this pay. Readers may pay for six months at $15.00, 9 months for $22.50 or a full year for $30.00. You can pay by check or credit card by calling our circulation department at 892-9613 or mailing it in to the Rantoul Press, P.O. Box 5110, Rantoul, IL 61866.
