Well, I am continuing to make new items daily for my June 13th show..Sangria Fest. Some days I feel like I need to be drinking more Sangria, some days I need to make more jewelry.
I am looking into taking credit cards thru a company I found on the web Pro Pay . I have done some investigating on craft seller forums and this was one of the top rated providers. I like that I don't need a merchant account to accept cards on site and all the fees are spelled out up front. I had a small business in the past and the monthly merchant fees in addition to the transaction fees make it difficult for the craft seller/small vendor to make it worthwhile to accept cards. I have been taking credit cards thru Pay Pal and looked into their Virtual Terminal, but you pay a $30 per month fee to get this feature (also on top of the transaction fees). Pro Pay charges and annual fee and transaction fees, but you can process using your cell phone. Yes I said your cell phone! But in case there is no signal you can take an imprint, the customers zip code and process in a batch later that night. Like Pay Pal you get a debt/credit card to spend your money or pay a small fee to transfer to your checking account. I feel that I would have doubled my sales at the last show had I been able to accept credit cards on site. So I am going to sign up and I will let you know what I think after the show!
