I do not see the value. You have to buy the machine or lease it and then pay a cell phone bill for it. The machine will give you a lower rate but in our case the rate is not attractive enough.Do you have a portable card machine or do they go on line to pay you?

I use quickbooks service because it works well with quickbooks. I had to set up a separate account with AMEX and Discover. I enter the information and 3 days later the money is in my checking account.
No idea, I've never used one. All we need to do is get the name on the card, the CCRV code and when it expires. They do not require my client to sign anything and all of my transactions are done on line.How do I go about getting a knuckle buster?
Brian, are you doing the PayPal thing to be proactive or are your clients requesting it? I might have to look into it.I use Quick Books. As FHI says you don't need the customer to sign anything. It is a very seamless process-- one entry into QB and it's done.
PayPal also has a program called Virtual Terminal that works in a similar fashion. You go on line, enter the information, and the money is instantly in your PayPal account. This program is only $20 a month, plus processing fees.
I have'nt seen one of those sliders in years.I use what they call a "knuckle buster". You insert the card and move a bar over the top and it imprints a receipt with the card number and your business info. They cost $40. Then you just call it in. The machine is just so you can give you customer a receipt.
The portable card swipe is like $700.
