How do I accept credit cards?

I want to start accepting credit cards and would prefer to do this through my website. Being a servie based biz, having a shopping cart does not work because customers are not buying anything. I would simply like for a customer to go to my site,type in their name, invoice #, payment amount and hit submit. Is this possible? I think I have seen some of you guys sites set up like this. Any info would be appreciated.

1st national processing... 7 bucks a month plus the transaction fee. Based out of California, all you need is a phone line,

Does anyone know how to set it up with paypal so the amount owed will be posted on their bill, or do I just have to go with the invoice we leave with the customer?

There are 2 ways to do it.
1. instruct the customer to send payment through paypal from invoice you mailed, emailed, or left with them.
2. Send a invoice from paypal to your customer with the charges on it.


Do you leave an invoice after every mowing?

We allow you to accept credit card and e-check payments for no monthly fees. We only charge a 3% + $0.40 transaction fee if your customer pays you online.
