I do not. There is a method to my madness besides the cost and hassle of accepting credit cards. If the customer is more interested in airline miles vs. what his property looks like I am not interested in doing business with this type of person.

Now if you are in the landscape construction biz that's another story.

But for myself who does full service lawn and landscape maintenance I look for customers that have money in the bank and can cut me a check 8 months of the year until they die or move out of my service area.

Many of you guys need to qualify your customers and stop working for people with cash flow issues. When looking at new job the first question that should come to your mind is:

Does this account have the means to go the long haul?
