accepting/processing credit card payments from clients

by Lee
(L.A.,CA)

I am wondering if anyone has a tried and true system of accepting credit card payments from clients? Could we start a discussion? I have read up on mobile credit card units, apps for laptops that can be used in conjunction with an established account for credit card processing, etc...it is not clear to me which is the best method.

The Square
by: Iron Anatomy

I just began using the Square in order to accept credit cards. I find it to be very easy to use and beneficial. You can either enter the card numbers in manually or swype the card with the free attachment that they send out to connect to a smart phone. Manually entering the numbers costs an additional .15 per transaction.

I have a client that I am training through skype because he moved and i can now take his payment with just his credit card numbers. He obviously trusts me and I originally trained him on location until he moved. It does charge you 3.5% on each transaction and plus .15 cents. You can either eat the charge or charge an additional convenience fee to the client. In my case I just let it slide because I am happy to be able to retain this client and it is only about a 4.00 loss on a $90 payment. I hope this answers you questions.
