Someways this is exactly how I feel when having to figure up the ratios and cruddy math equations just to make something that smells nice or helps 😉 lol

I ran my first payment via GoPayment, my new credit card processor. I absolutely love that I was able to enter all of my product codes, descriptions, and costs into it, so when I create an order I can just tap on the items. It tallies them up and then you either swipe the card or go to the keyed page. There is definitely a down side to it though. A carryover habit from being a billing consultant is to write “via text” or “via phone”. Well, when I went to “write” that on the screen it seriously looked like a kindergartener had written it. Rofl. I bet customers will get a laugh when they have to sign, although I think we’re all pretty used to electronic signatures turning out wonky. I definitely didn’t expect careful print words to look so bad though! *grin* I was able to text the receipt immediately and love that feature. I never could get the email receipt function to work properly. My customer didn’t want it, but it was a perfect opportunity to familiarize myself. It kept saying that I had entered an invalid email. Um, all three of those were mine, Intuit! I know my own email addresses. Lol. I’ll have to check on that next time. In the meantime I’m tickled that there are extra fraud protection steps with this processor, than Paypal did. This requires the security code and it took more steps to do a keyed card. PayPal was certainly user friendly, but in that I felt it was disturbingly easy to do a keyed transaction. This app sure makes me feel a lot better about working to protect my customers. I was even able to zero out the sales tax, since I added it into my prices to make it easier for everyone, which is a really nice feature in my opinion. Overall, I definitely will be recommending this processor to any and all. 🙂 Now if I could only fall asleep or get the umph to go make some bath cookies….*grin* Happy Sunday!
