Crdit Cards

Looking to see what merchant accounts you use.....Who's the best, who has the lowest rates, etc.

Is it even worth accepting credit cards or should I stick to traditional billing and accept only cash, checks, etc.?

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

We use quickbooks. Had chase as for our merchant account, then it was transfered to intuit (one of their companies). No problems with them either.

Check out COSTCO they are great. I wouldn't push the whole we take cridit cards unless you charge a little more across the board to cover the cost.
