You are so silly.

we invoice thru paypal for customers who want to pay with cc


the template has company logo and looks pro


Has provision for customer to add tip, they almost always do. Even with the fee the total is almost always more than the original invoice.


Transfer to bank is next day and without fee

I've accepted CC's since i opened my business last year, and have yet to accept one. People seem to love Cash (so do I) and Checks around here.

Granted, starting out, so haven't had a run of 5 figure jobs or anything as well.

I do not accept credit cards. Cash or checks only. It has never been an issue in 11 years. We use to accept them and after a dispute 10 years ago and the customer got their money back and the credit card company never even reached out to us was the day that changed. We are busy with work 7 days a week. Has not slowed us down at all...
