We've ran about 20K through Square in the past year. I have no complaints about them.

Square is great. If you decide to go that route, have them send you a free card reader when you sign up on their site. I've seen them in a variety of large retailers for $10-$20. (Apple Stores are $10) If you need additional for crews, I've had no problem getting additional at no charge.

If you're disciplined it's awesome. I, however, am not. I want my money in a lump sum at the beginning of every month.

For one time jobs it's awesome. I have a paypal link on my website that customers currently use, but I'm thinking about getting this. I may be too tempted to have ppl swipe (if they're home) after each mow and go buy a beer or 5, though. Could be trouble.
