Credit/Debit cards, good question. First of all, you don't have to have a phone line. You can swipe the cards with an old fashion card imprinter and then batch them out later when you get to a phone line. The only problem with this is you don't get instant confirmation #s, but in my 7 years in business, I never had one that did not go through. Much safer than checks. There are other options, as others have mentioned, as well. If you are not doing a lot of sales, then it may be cost prohibitive. But you will lose sales and you will loose money over it. I guarantee it. Take your cost, subtract your potential lost sales, add your added sales and then ask yourself if it is worth it.
