Credit Cards

Does any one have one of those mobile crdit card units. They dont require a phone line.

It cost
$899 for the unit
1.25 for swiped cards
1.62% for numbers punched in
$0.23 per transation
$20.00 per month

Does this sound like a good deal.
I know for snow removal during snow storms it would come in handy but what about the lawn care season.

I used to have a mobile unit. Was connected to a mobile phone. Lots of cost when combining the 2.

Now we have a unit in the office.

Looking into handling the sending of invoice and payment via internet.

We use a knuckle buster out in the field...and run them at the end of the day..we have softwear on our computer (ICVerify).

Gives daily, weekly, monthly reports..works great.

The software was less than $200.00 and we use Sam's Club for processing.

Haven't needed it for lawn care yet.

Hi Pelnuts,

What kind of costs are associated with having Sam's Club handle your processing? How has that worked out for you? Any links to their service website?

It is not the best deal in the world...but it works for me!
