I once had a store - sold used computers. So I had a VISA/MC merchant account, and a Zon Jr swipe machine, and it all worked, but it cost a fortune, and I was glad to be rid of it when I sold the business, years ago. Now I have been invited to purchase a table at a local town festival, and I believe I'd like to try selling some prints. I realize from reading other threads that it would be a good idea if I could offer to take credit cards as well as cash or (with some trepidation) checks. However, I neither want, nor do I need, another four-year commitment to a merchant account and a leased swipe capture machine. And this will be an outdoor event anyway, no A/C and no phone line. Just a table. I was thinking that perhaps I could find someone to partner with who already has this capability and would share for a small cut - but that's about all I can think of, and I have no other ideas. And the organizers are not much help, they have no idea who, if anyone, has c.c. acceptance capability. Any thoughts? Or is this just a lost cause?
