    Most of the suggestions rely on having internet access, which is only going to do you any good if there is wireless or some kind of access, and power. From what you have already posted, that doesn't sound likely.

    Do you have any idea who some of the other vendors are? If they have participated before, they might have the best insight.
    That's just, like, my opinion, man...

    Merchant account. Monthly fee, contract, and a 'virtual terminal' that requires internet access. Thanks, but that's what I'm trying to avoid. I've been a VISA/MC merchant, I don't want to do that again. Just looking for a one-shot solution, not setting myself up as a business again.

    Thanks, though.
    Best,

    Do you think these rates seem high or norm? I am trying to find an alternative to paypal and have had people that want to use credit cards but they do not want to use paypal.

    It says $10 a month for a statement and 2.39% + .25 cents per transaction. I know paypal is getting 3-5% but there is no monthly statement fee. At least not yet.

    Don't forget the $19.95 per month for 'internet gateway fee'.

    With my paypal account I don't pay a monthly fee and my rates are 2.9% + 0.30 which is the highest fee they charge, unless you are using the virtual terminal and that is $20.00 per month, no monthly statement fee no long term obligation

    On my propay account I pay $59.95 a year and 3.25% + 0.35 per transaction and I can process over the net or over the phone...and 0.30 when I withdraw the money in my account, but I don't have a monthly statement fee or other associated costs that is normal with most merchant accounts.

    But as with any of the oline transaction accounts it is easier to use if you have an online connection.

    One my paypal account, I just generate buttons that allows the customer to purchase with a credit card, even if they don't have a paypal account, no obligation on the customers part to sign up for an account.

    As far as a 1 shot deal, I don't think I have ever heard of an account like that and your best bet is probably as you started asking, is to partner up with someone.

    Maybe twice in twenty years at a small town arts & crafts show I've been asked if I took credit cards. I don't, and I didn't lose the sales. However, I do take checks without question, and have never had a problem. In a sophisticated venue and with more expensive photos, accepting credit cards should make more difference.
