Credit Cards Forever

Credit Cards Forever
I tell all my new clients that I ONLY take CC , nothing else .
They seem to love it , no turn downs yet.
With Quick Books , I can automate everything from automatic invoicing to automatic payments via Visa & MasterCard .
NO MORE HOURS & HOURS IN THE OFFICE .

Now , getting my existing clients to swith is another thing .
My sucess rate is about 60% to 70% .
I'm not complaining , you see .

Life is getting easier .

Awesome! I'm thinking of doing the same. Are you using paypal or another service? What do you find is the easiest way to actually take the payment, phone, a web site, in person? Do you just automatically bill their card the day you mow?
Thanks

We started taking Visa, MC, & Discover this year through Nova systems, I think we got a pretty good deal through our Costco membership, so far we only have a handful of people using it but it is pretty sweet, most of them just give us the info and we run it through after each service, wrote that option into our service agreement, they just check a box.
