I know there are a lot of things that we can do ourselves. We can do our own taxes. We can write our own content. We can manage our own blogs. We can cook our own food. We can make our clothes. We can even make our own bath and body products. However, there are some things that we simply should not try on our own. Fooling around with the wiring in our homes is one of those things.

PayPal vs. Processing Credit Cards for New Online Businesses
New businesses are not only challenged with the question of how to make money, they also need to figure out the best way to process the transactions. I hope that this post will help you to make a good decision as to the best way for your small business to process transactions.
How Credit Card Processing Works
There are three separate expenses incurred by businesses who accept credit card payments, they are:
The cost of machinery- A simple hand-held credit card processing machine is likely to cost $50 per month to rent. The more advanced pieces of machinery obviously cost more.
The monthly rate paid per credit card company- Upon processing any transaction of a credit card company (such as Visa) that company charges the business a flat monthly rate. That flat rate could be about $10-$20. If you consider processing a few different types of credit cards, those flat monthly rates can get expensive. . The business only pays for months that they process a transaction through that credit card company. As a result, there are small businesses that refuse to take certain types of cards, not because they don’t have the ability to process them, but rather because it is just not worth it to pay the flat monthly fee.
The rate charged by credit card companies per transaction- Credit card companies usually take a percentage out of each purchase as a processing fee, much like PayPal does. The rates that PayPal, and other similarly low fuss money processing services, charge per percent of the transaction are higher than what the credit companies charge if you work with them directly. The reason that working with credit card companies rather than PayPal can be more expensive is due to the two previously listed reasons. Therefore, using services like PayPal or Google Checkout is cheaper for businesses that are just getting started out, and don’t have much income yet. This will be explained further in the next paragraph.

When you have a client where things don’t work the way you want them to, it is really tempting to wash your hands of the person and just say to heck with him or her. That is not a good idea unless they were just rude or a hassle to work with or just acted like a prima donna or something. Now I always check back in with past clients that I enjoyed working with to see if they need more work done. Doing this got me two paying assignments this week. So think twice before you put a past client into that “do not work with” file.
