    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?

    :confused:

    we accept visa & mastercard and also accept paypal. But we are going to get rid of it because of the high charges when we use it. It's totally nutz!

    Thanks for the info on PayPal.
     
  9. 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.
     
  10. We are considering a mobil unit for snow removal hers the link

    http://www.paynetsystems.com/Equipmentsoftware/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
