    I use Concord EFS. But there are several companies available. You can search for Credit Card Processors on any search engine and find some. Some people on this board use the service through quickbooks.
    You have a machine at the office that you can slide the card through or punch in the number by hand, if the customer just calls in the number to you. You are charged a higher rate when you don't have the card in hand.

    Good luck,

    have you checked out paypal? The CC machine processor is pretty expensive to lease per month.

    I ran into a lady about 2 years ago they actually have a wireless credit card machine that you can put in your truck and actually do your transactions that way. It sounds like a good idea but I wasnt to fond of the price so i siad screw it

    We process our CC payments using our PC. The software is called POS- Pardners. Our merchant account handled by I-Pay.

    We do pay close to 3% for this "card not present" service but we had almost no upfront costs. We are able to accept Visa, MasterCard, and American Express using this process.

    We use PayPal on our website. Cheaper than standard card banks and no tying up my employees with running cards.
