Types of payment?
« on: November 27, 2012, 11:11:51 PM »
For the guys that are on their own, what forms of payment do you guys accept?  If you accept credit cards, how do you process it?  I'm trying to prepare to go on my own and want to have everything ready to go. Thanks.

Cash is King,  followed by checks that are solid.   A thing called square for plastic but ya gotta have smart phone & data plan with internet.

I usually just take cash or checks.  If they want to use a credit card, I have them pay through Amazon.  It's just like Paypal, but no fees. https://payments.amazon.com

Cash, check and credit card. We have a Portable CC terminal that connects via 3G.

Cash, credit cards, check, 1st borns...etc.

I once replaced an ice maker for a brand new 30" computer monitor.  Monitor still works to this day.

Years ago traded partial service work for an opal ring, gave it to my girlfriend. I married her and she still has the ring plus 4 other opal rings. Cheaper than diamonds and nicer looking too! I have traded for sheep,auto work,tools even a trailer as well as other things.
