    Paypal and square. No monthly, just a small transaction percentage.

    Depends on the amount. I generally figure on 4%

    Paypal, I offer other options, Per cut by mail or month in advance. I make it clear in my agreement that there is a 3% e-pay fee.

    for the guys who have added a fee for there customers who pay with paypal, how has that worked? i'm gonna do that soon. don't have to many customers that use it yet.. but it seems like the 4% they take could really add up.
