    Great over view of credit card transactions and costs . i run a small construction/ service company and have just a few customers that want to pay with a card. We are typically mobile and need a way to accept credit/debit on the spot. Most of our transactions are rather large 1k or so and 3.5 percent of that is a bit of a hit. Any suggestions ?

      Hi Chris,

      Square is a little cheaper than 3.5% for those types of transactions, but I’d also consider a full-service merchant account through CDGcommerce for only $10/month. Good luck to you!
