    Hi everyone,

    First of all, I want to congratulate Sean on building a great resource for landscape business owners - well done, obviously this must've been a labor of love for quite some time before it took off (forums always require a lot of maintenance before the userbase begins to run itself)...

    Secondly, I want to point out that I'm not a landscape business owner - I'm a partner in a service that enables mobile business owners - such as landscapers - to accept credit card payments on the spot using any touchtone phone or cellular.

    My question is twofold:

    1. Do you think your business would benefit if you could accept credit cards as a payment method for lawn care/landscape invoices affordably and efficiently?

    2. Though I've already contacted the ad rep on this site (Don) about advertising, is there a place on this forum where I can specifically mention this service legitimately, and without breaking the forum rules?

    Thanks in advance,


    Chris Rempel

    Do a search in this section. The topic of accepting credit cards has been discussed often.

    If you could get some good rates like 1% for us you would be a millionaire, but for the most part we don't feel like paying 2.9-4% of our hard earned money to a credit card company.

    Send me a PM if you have a some good deals for accepting credit cards.
