Graham asked me about taking credit card payments. I have been using PayPal
for this for a few years, now.
PayPal charges you based on your monthly income. Here is PayPal's merchant
I have wondered about getting an actual merchant account, but my
understanding is that most merchant accounts have a monthly fee and still
charge 3% interest. Other than having a card-swiper in my office, I can't
figure out what advantages there are to a merchant account. I guess they
also deposit directly to your bank account, so you could potentially take
credit cards for trust account deposits, too.
