Re: accepting debit/credit cards
I don't and the reason is because most of my sells are not large amounts at farmers markets. In order to get set up you will have to buy a card reader and wireless, which last time I checked, ran about 800 bucks. You then also have to pay for the service plus 3% or a bit more on every sale. If you were selling jewelry or other items that ran up or close to a hundred bucks or so then it may be worth it. But for 5-10 buck sales it is going to take awhile to re-coop your initial outlay. Maybe someone who actually does use a reader will respond and list the benefits of having it. I personally have lost maybe 5 sales last year out of thousands. Most people have cash in smaller amounts or at least can write a check.
