    I may be wrong but I am 99 percent positive that you can't charge the customer the credit card fee. Atleast not in nebraska. You can try rewording it by saying its someother fee.

    there is an option to charge them tax so you could always add that in there to try and bump up the charge

    I think the best thing is we can offer more for our customers.

    If you guys are interviewing your customer properly before you give them a bid, you can always ask how they will be paying. Adjust your prices accordingly for the job. But whatever you do, don't add a surcharge for using a credit card. If it's a $200 job who cares? 10 grand is a different story.

    I have the phone swipe one and works great. I give the customers a 3% cash discount. And I no longer take checks from anyone its cash or card only.

    My chimney sweep company told me last month that there would be a 3% surcharge if I paid by credit card. They accepted checks but had a hard time with cash because they didn't always have change. I am in Michigan.
