Get Paid with a Merchant Account
In the 21st century, customers pay with plastic
If you want to get paid, you have two easy options... cash or check. Accepting checks can be risky as you have to provide goods or services, usually before you are certain that the check will clear. Requiring cash means your customers must be carrying enough money to buy your products or services and limits your average order ticket. If your customers aren't local, these problems are even bigger. The bottom line is that traditional methods of payment are inconvenient and often impractical. Customers today expect to be able to pay with a credit card.
Accepting credit card payment requires a merchant account. Unfortunately many less than reputable merchant account providers take advantage of naive merchants to force them into lengthy contracts and to pay overpriced fees. If you are a U.S. business owner, you should expect reasonable monthly fees (typically ranging from $10-$30 per month), no long term contracts, and low start-up expense. There are literally thousands of merhant account providers in the U.S., but a small number stand out in terms of pricing, professionalism, and security.
