    Few things I trust less than the Govt... but paypal is on that list!

    People complain, your money gets seized until a verdict is reached.. great way to have cashflow problems.

    Needless to say.. I recommend against it

    What's the benefit of this for the business, I fell the customer should put it on a credit card so we can part ways. Credit card companies are in the finance business, not landscaping companies.

    Best to just accept credit cards. I'd speculate to say that this year approximately 50% of my clients have paid via credit card, which is a record high for me. Soon checks will be obsolete.

    I pay for everything with a debit card. About the only time I write a check is for the payroll.

    Same here except payroll, I've written 2 checks in the last 5 years.

    I use paypal but they pay up front, and I add $5 to cover the paypal fees and the time it takes me to send an invoice. I only do it for two accounts because they travel constantly.
