    I take payments via paypal on my website, also majority of my customers receive their invoices via email so I have a paypal button attached to my electronic invoices so that they can go straight to paypal. I also got setup through Square to take credit/debt cards at the jobsite also via my iphone (mainly used for the one timers that request a mowing because they saw me in their subdivision,this avoids getting bad checks from one time customers)

    Do you get a notification of who has paid? I have been considering paypal, but I wasn't sure if I would be able to know if/when someone pays?

    I just went to their website, and I don't want to pay $3-6 for each transaction. What free options are out there?

    It costs a quarter to receive payments, and senders is free, but they will need to sign up for an account to pay you...

    I have been told about intuit that works with quickbooks. it is 50 cents per trans, no matter the size, and works as a electronic check.

    any of you use this? or know about it?

    Yes I get a notification email and it auto updates my invoice system (Working Point) to show that the balance was paid.

    yes, and they have this program for accepting checks online thru your website, something. have not gotten too into it, but want to throw out the quesitons and mentions about it.

    seems a good deal to me, the main reason we dont want to accept credit cards is the loss of money from the transaction. i dont like that much at all.
