Re: credit card payments for service

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Don't forget to add the id on the back, and ask for a ssn and mother's maiden name. You never know when you'll need to run an extra billing cycle, or need to up their limit to cover your extra fees.  ;-)

We don't do enough small jobs to justify the expense, and the only clients who have stiffed me weren't CC paying types.  That's actually  saying a lot considering how may small jobs we do. But I'll keep that pencil thing in mind...

Had my car fixed by a mobile mechanic once.  Afterward, I handed him my mastercard, and he took an old dirty pencil and made a "rubbing" of my card onto a piece of paper and had me sign that.  I think that would be a very professional way to bill a client, but you have to do it in front of the client for best effects.
