For the appraisers that do a significant amount of non lender reports; do you take Credit cards and what system do you use? "Square" cost 2.75% of the transaction....more $$$$ going out...

I accept Credit Cards. I use Paypal, email client invoice from PayPal. Client can pay with Pay pal or credit card I never see their credit card numbers. just get email from PayPal that client has paid.  My service fees about the same as Square.  I thought about Square or something similar of being able to swipe card at time of inspection, but in this age of personal Id theft didn't want hassle of client's id being stolen a few days after I swipe the card and blaming me.

I try and determine how they will pay before quoting fee, add in CC fee if paying that way or offer 2 fees 1 that is cash/check discount. Some regards CC less hassle no running to bank with check, just electronic transfer from Paypal to bank account.

Never had a client walk away because I don't accept CC..

Usually they will just go to the ATM and get cash.

I just tell them that a vast majority of my clients are bank and mortgage lenders who pay by check and that I am not set up for cards.  Never had a problem.

I am with Mike on this one. PayPal works great. With the email invoice option, you never see the credit card, they just enter it themselves. Best part is no monthly fee. There is just a small transfer fee which is not worth making a fuss, just a cost of doing business.

Was that a dick move, or do I have to explain paypal in full to get credit?  Just wondering why you agree with "Mike" when I said it before "MC"?  Maybe you and Mike are buddies???
