Since starting this thread, I have been using square and been very satisfied. Their payments are prompt and efficient. They have no hidden fees, which is such a huge problem with so many processors out there for small biz

I prefer Intuit GoPayment http://gopayment.com/pricing/, 

Device feels more professional and when you don't do 10k+ a month, its cheaper.

 

I also recommend anyone using either spend a doller on a touch screen pen so customers don't have to sign with their finger.

I don't see any discounts if you spend LESS than?

I see cheaper rates if you pay the $12.95/month.

 

Do you have something that you got grandfathered in or am I looking in wrong location?

 

Thank you.

Looks like they rased their price to match square.

Still prefer their card reader.

You know, I wonder how these mobile payment services will handle upcoming EMV adoption.

 

Also I know that PayPal offers 5% + 0.05 cents for those mostly dealing with less than $10 transaction. Wonder any competitor offers any comparable plan?
