    You will find that the day you start taking credit cards your sales will grow. People like to pay with credit cards because of several reasons.
    1.....They like to feel like they can get their money back if the transaction has problems by fighting the charge.
    2.....They like to be able to pay over time by putting large expenses on a card rather than parting with all of that money at one time.
    3.....They like the fact that they can pay quickly without having to go to the trouble of going to the bank or post office to get certified payments that take time to mail.

    Because it speeds things up so much you will see a lot more sales in a short period of time.

    I'm set up with Payment Alliance. They are pretty competitive in the rates that they charge.

    If you go to the Tools For Sellers link on Gun Broker you can actually see a video of how the check out system works.

    Here is a relative new one headed by Kelly McMillan of McMillan Stocks and McMillan Rifles:

    Obviously this is a gun friendly financial tool since Kelly started this in response to B of A dropping McMillan because of their businesses.

    Depends upon wherever else you might wish to be a vendor.
