    PayPal still charges you just like a merchant account does

    That's true, and their fee structure is pretty comparable with a Merchant Account, too. The only place a person can really save by using PayPal over a Merchant is in the initial setup (PayPal does not yet charge for this) and monthly "statement fees", etc.

    I still prefer PayPal for a lot of eBay trading, but in all honesty, they have had a questionable reputation before eBay bought them out (in the opinion of some folks). Couldn't that actually reflect back on an LCO who is using them for a payment solution?

    Anyhow, I would be uncomfortable using them to accept payment for lawn care services.
