RE: credit card payments for service

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

We accept credit cards in our office. This allows our small residential clients to pay sooner.  We do increase our price to pay for the added cost of the credit cards.

I know this is not what you asked, but ......


1)  Don't you have to give up 2 to 3% of the payment to the credit card company?

2)  What type of clients are wanting to pay by credit card?  What $$ size are the projects?

3)  If cash flow and/or slow payment is a concern, wouldn't a retainer be better?


Just my unsolicited throughts,


David Finley

Do any engineers on the list accept credit cards as a method of payment for services?

I am just wondering what the best way to implement this service might be.

A brief search on the web returns a lot of anxious providers but they don’t look very professional.
