I'm considering getting one of these myself, but some of them are not compatible with my tablet, namely the Square. I know PayPal offers one and I may go that direction since I already have an account with them. Most seem to have around a 2.7% per transaction fee.

The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come over and cut their hair.

I use the Square and it works great for me. 2.75% swipe fee or you can do a monthly rate if you have a whole lot of customers. My money is in my account the next day if I swipe before 4:00pm CST but never been more than 2 days.

We use square. Mainly because when we began they were the better one offering the service.
Look around as there are a. Bunch of companies offering this service now. Many with better rates.

I have been using square because of the rates. Time to start researching again since more companies are doing them now.

Square too. When I got it, it was the cheapest to use. Not sure if it still is.

Paypal for us. Had Square too. Prefer the PP as we already used it for online cc invoicing. PP offers a visa, mc for easy access to funds. PP also has far greater brand recognition with consumers compared to Square. Had an identity theft issue last Xmas and they siphoned off almost 10k before it was caught. PP refunded all my money within 48hrs with minimal hassle. Customer service is top notch too.
