I accept them but i let them know there's a up charge. I explain to them that to keep estimates low i don't include the % of CC transactions as most people don't pay by card. If you have that many customers paying with card though i would include that into your estimate or price and even if they don't pay by card you make a little extra on the job that way.I accept credit cards but unfortunately the fees do add up at end of the month. However, I don't want to give it up since many of my customers like to pay with a credit card.
just be aware there may be some customers who hire you not knowing your cash/check and may not use you again or refer you because you don't take credit card....in todays world everyone accepts credit cardCash and checks only for me.
It's legal to set minimum amounts for credit card purchases and, as of last year, it's legal to charge for the transaction fee.Check the laws in your state. In Maine it is illegal to charge a credit card transaction fee. However, you are allowed to give a cash discount and you can have the fees figured into your normal pricing.
Who comes right out and puts on the invoice a transaction fee for using a credit card, just build it into the cost, perfectly legal.that might be true in your state, but not here. That's why I said you need to check your state laws. In Maine it is illegal to charge a transaction fee unless you are a municipality.
