Thinking about accepting credit cards this year. Has anyone used the nextel credit card services
Check out paypal. They can accept credit cards for you.
No..... I use quickbooks.....seem to be the best rates
I use Quickbooks, so do most of my customers
GMAN I don't know if cape savings bank is up your way but they have a pretty resonable merchant service setup. I had mine set up last month it cost about $350 for setup and machine with a printer. It runs almost 3% because we dont usually have the card to swipe we just manually enter the number. We are very satisfied sofar and even had a customer call at 10 pm to prepay their bill for the season.
I do admit that Quickbooks does have some nice rates. Even though I use Gopher, I sitll process credit card payments through QB
if you have a Sam's Club, they offer very reasonable merchant services. i'd assume Costco would as well.
I saw their info, but it only shows the rate for the swiped cards...whats the rate for the keyed? For Sams Club?
I have a merchant account through Costco. It is 2.02% + .27 cents per transaction. Only drawback is that you must process enough cards to have $20 or more in fees every month, or they take the difference out to make $20. If you have enough volume, the rates are excellent. If you dont have enough volume, I would go with PayPal until you see the need to switch over to a real merchant account.
Quickbooks is the same way, and you have to pay the 18 dollar monthly fee. Just to have it! Its a damned if you do, damned if you don't type of scenario for me as I do mostly landscaping.
