Credit Card Processing ???

Has anyone out there tried the little Square credit card reader by Apple and the one by Intuit that you plug into cell phone ?? If so is it worth using or just a gimmick? Thanks in advance.

So do you guys using square do you swipe the card or are you putting them in manually. It gets kind of costly 3.5% to do it manually

Most the time manually. Since customer not home. Dont eat the cost. Let them know that there is a fee... nice thing is most the time money is in account in one or two days later....

Yea it's nice not to have to wait. But are you allowed to charge a fee we have a convenient store and the agreement with the CC co states that you can't charge a fee. I know the government can charge a convince fee.

Just adjust your price, don't call it a fee! be assured companies aren't eating CC fees!

Yea that's what we do when we can. If they state paying with a CC in the middle of the year we just add 3% to next years renewal.

In our store we add 3% to every thing we can but some things are pre priced and cigarettes are on a contract they tell you what to charge

I was just asking if they tell people up front that there is a fee for using a CC
