We accept Visa / MasterCard / Discover.

Processed with the unit in office. By spring we should have it available on website along with PayPal or just PayPal.

DO NOT mess with PAYPAL - they are worthless!

I get paid just fine via check right now. Why would I pay a percentage to a card company to accept money when I get it fine anyway?

We accept credit cards, good rate through our bank, works well for us.
I would add pay-pal to my business anytime if there was a call for it. Good thing about it is no monthly minimum. My wife uses pay-pal for the online part of her business, 2.5% and .35 per transaction. Good rate for what they offer. When I did the set up it was very easy. No problems to this point.

We are considering a mobil unit for snow removal hers the link

http://www.paynetsystems.com/Equipme.../Nurit2085.htm

$329.00

It stores upto 100 Transactions. You take it out into the feild swipe the cards print receipts. When you get back to the office you plug it into the phone line a conect to the server uploading the charges.

We think it would be a good idea for the snow removal. Charge on the spot.

Any ideas or comments on this please help
