    Don't know about the annual fee. Maybe volume related, maybe BS. I want my wife to shop this again. She handles that end of things.

    Who is your provider?

    Gotta guy coming Tuesday, claims they have 1.59% per trans, but non specifics on anything additional. I've checked this out before and it seemed prohibitive then. We'll give it another look and I'll keep you informed.
  4. We pay 2.35% + 52 cents per transaction. The bank gave me an imprinter to use in the field, but most transactions are done by phone. There is a minimum $25 in fee's per month. I don't see where it helped with once/twice a year aerations etc. but about 50% of new mow customers choose to pay by credit card. Its real handy for deposits on bigger $ jobs.
    I find offering and advertising credit cards (using the visa/mc logos on flyers) gives me a competitive advantage in customer perception over those who don't.
