    Square up is the cheapest and easiest way to take credit cards. No set up fee's, no monthly fee's, nothing. The fee they charge is 2 3\4% per transaction and that's it. The only draw back is you have to have a smart phone. I will report back later on how it goes.:cool2:

    QuickBooks now allows you to allow your customers to pay with credit cards. All I pay is 50 cents per transaction no matter what the size of the transaction is. I've told this to several companies peddling credit card services and they didn't know what to say.

    I have Squareup as well for my Iphone, but if intuit is cheaper, I will go with that. They have a card reader for smartphones as well.
