I am wondering of anyone does this and if so have the results been good? More customers from it?
YES, alot of us.
Nope, very few if any use it and I would say that 95% or more of the LCO's on here that offer it would agree with that. The only ones that have a leaning toward using it in my experience is multi-thousand dollar jobs.
Have to agree 100% and add that those multi thousand dollar jobs make it worth accepting CC
Friend of mine has it. Says its not worth it. I was looking into one at the time.
I just have a business paypal account that I can send invoices and customers can use theie cards. Have only used it 5-6 times last year, but I had one estimate I lost because I did not accept cards back then. THe paypal is paid with a small percentage each transaction, not monlthy. It's small enough that I add it to the bill and it doesn't get questioned.
We offer CC payments to our clients and many, many of them use this option. Although, i am in a different field, I was actually surprised at how many clients preferred to pay by CC. We use QuickBooks to run the CC's.
We don't offer it and have never been asked to. Just more work for everyone.IMO
Most people would not use it for a 1 month maintenance bill but give the ones that want to add 10-20k in installations the option and they take advantage of perks THEY receive from using CC. Plus there more likely to buy extras. The extra percentage that the card company charges the co, is added into the price and spread out among many customers.
I actually just cancelled my quickbooks merchant account today after a 1 year trial with CC's. I thought alot more people would be interested than actually were. The increased revenue didn't justify the monthly fees for me.
