Best way to accept payment?

Postby Pa.Pete » Thu Nov 23, 2017 12:55 pm

For those of you that sell at craft shows and flea markets how do you accept payment? I know cash is king but do you also use a credit card reader? If so what is a recommended brand. Any tips anyone can give me relating to this?

I thought I would use paypal on my website. Do you use anything else that would accept a Visa card or anything?

I use Paypal, their credit card swipe is just like all the others but you can also accept paypal payments as well.

I didn't know PayPal offered the card reader. I will have to check into that. Thanks everyone for the replies.

We use Square. The reporting tools to track sales tax are way better than Paypal.

I would have to agree with csplazma1. I have been using paypal for years but did not like the way some of the features work. I started using square a little over a month ago and so far like it much better than paypal. It seems more user friendly.

I still have not made a decision yet as we have only gone to one flea market but I will check out Square.
