Alas, more research

I hope that you don’t fully “hear” the impudent smile in my writing.  *teasing wink*  I fear that I cannot suppress it though.  I have found a way to save myself at least $400 a year in overhead!  *limited happy dance*  While remaining in my sick bed I found that Intuit is offering credit card processing with a free card reader, no monthly or annual fees, no minimum, and no cancelation fees.  In addition, the keyed rates are comparable and I would certainly make up the difference at events with being able to swipe in the customer’s presence.  I’ve been researching some processing alternatives for awhile, because I pay a monthly fee even when I go months without a credit card transaction.  I have had credit card customers express reluctance to continue using credit if I used a company that they weren’t as familiar with as Paypal.  However, Intuit is a great option I think.  They are a well trusted name in financial/business software and it is beyond awesome that I could sync payments from my phone right into Quickbooks.  Wow!  I think that as a customer I would like the ability to swipe and sign on a vendor’s phone without having to go through the filling out of a keyed transaction worksheet if I’m at an event (couldn’t care less otherwise, I suspect lol).  I like the idea that I can stop at any point if I dislike it and not be out a penny.  It’s quite an exciting possibility for me.  It is a lot like another processor that another crafter recommended that I liked, but wasn’t as well known, and has some fun options like texting or emailing receipts. 

Think of how many new FOs, EOs, and additives that the saved money would allow.  *grin*  Or even how much less guilt I will have when my bottom line is printed on my business report.  It would be nice to see it print in black at some point.  Lol.  I have developed quite a disliking of the color red 😉

Anyway, I look forward to when I feel up to sitting at my computer and signing up to give Intuit processing a whirl.  Okay, okay.  Those that know me know that I’m really more excited at getting a new electronic gadget.  Lol.  It’s exciting, regardless.  *grin* 

I wish you a healthy and happy day!
