From the “if it’s too good to be true it is” files. Many charities depending on the Give to the Max day, in Minnesota, were left to fend for themselves when the donation web service Razoo crashed.

Razoo, which touts free transactions, evidently doesn’t pay enough for their web hosting provider.  

We ran into a similar issue with a service called Widgetbox. We paid an unrealistically low $1 a month for unlimited widgets across our platforms.  Guess what?  Widgetbox is going out of business in March.

We’re all guilty of it.  We’re spoiled by the insanely low price points for valuable online services.  Thank you, Google.  

But ultimately, the “stuff” required to host a reliable online service costs money. If you as a customer are not paying for ‘it’, then there is a great chance that ‘it’ will go down or disappear altogether.

Caveat emptor.
