Credit card service for quick books/service autopilot

Over the winter I'm gonna look hard at accepting credit cards. I'm currently using quick books and service autopilot.

Is there a service that works better with either of these? Low fees? I hope to require most to be on file and not swiped or entered.

Quickbooks lets you use credit cards. They even let people pay right from the invoice, not sure on everything else as I don't accept credit cards, but I am thinking about it.

You have 2 easy to use options already. Why look to find another that does not integrate into the software you already use?
Which program do you email invoices with? That's the one to accept credit cards through.

I use square and the fees are 2.5% per transaction. Just remember that if you decide to keep any customers credit card on file you better make absolutely certain that zero percent of this credit information is compromised in any way.
Having and maintaining this information is a serious responsibility and should not be ever taken for granite.

The only processing companies you can use wit SA is BluePay, PayPros, or Authorize.net. I use BluePay no complaints. We autocharge about 30-40 cards weekly.

I recommend BluePay. they work very well with the software you have and their fees are reasonable. I have used others as well. With my volume I pay about 2.5% effective rate

I was told bluepay has an annual certification fee and possible monthly fees in addition to processing fees. There is nothing on their website.

The authorize one has a monthly fee also.
