Beth - What a great idea! I had checked other venues for credit/debit cards but wasn't satisfied with their requirements. I have got to check this out - would be great for my SU business!
Hope your craft fairs do well this year!

The card is processed on site, so you don't have to worry about lack of funds after the fact etc. like the old system with the credit card slips and slider machine.
My big question is this: Do you think that you can increase your sales per customer substantially by offering a credit/debit option? Will they increase enough to justify the additional transaction charge? I don't use my credit cards much so I'm at a loss!
Thanks in advance for your help!
