Help on accepting credit cards...|
From First Duck on 2 Feb '00
I have a small start-up site with just one product that I am experimenting with. I have made a few sales and would like to be able to accept credit cards. I am a college student (meaning my budget is small right now). Can anyone give me some suggestions on how I can get set up to take credit cards without cutting off the arm and leg that most of the services out there want to charge you. The ones I have looked at all have some big ballon fee that doesn't work for my situation right now. Like $300 software packages, $199 set up fees, or monthly minumums. Is there a company out there that a small start up business like mine could go to to process the small amount of sales I have right while I work on getting this off the ground? I wouldn't mind paying a bit higher percentage processing rate as long as I don't have to commit long term and there aren't any big set up fees that I can't justify right now. Any help would be appreciated.
