I received my credit card machine Monday and was curious to know the best way to get your customers to pay with a debit or credit card. Do you generally encourage your customers to pay with plastic? I had several customers recommend that I accept cards, and I'd like to think it will save me money by not having to make trips to the bank to deposit checks. I previously accept credit card payments through Paypal on my website but they charge 2.9% + $.30 per transaction. The fee for Visa and MC is 2.39% for each transaction but if I process over $1200 per month, the $6 monthly fee will be waved. Do you include a space on your invoices for the customer to put their card number and if so, do many of your customers use this as a method of payment? Do you ask your customers to call in their card number for payment? Please give me your experiences (do's and don'ts) of accepting credit cards. Thanks in advance.
