    Hey all,

    I just got set up to accept credit cards, and I'm itching to send out the letter to all my customers to let them know, but a quick question first.

    Do you process the card weekly or monthly? It would give more consistent cashflow to do weekly, but I'd save 3 transaction charges if I did it monthly. Although that's only gonna be $.69 per customer per month. Less than 1% of my minimum mowing price.

    I'm leaning toward weekly (day of service). Anyone think I'm an idiot for doing so? If so, let me know why.

    No I don't. Collect weekly to maintain good cash flow. After seeing other post on this sight, I have started the process to take credit cards. Plus you don't have to chase homeowners for payment.
