    ... Addressing your question, to be honest, in the beginning I was quite lost about who to choose, but in the end I think I made a good choice. I selected Authorize.net as my payment system because they are...1. well known and recognized leaders in the industry2. provided a fair rate for transactions3. customer service was readily availableIt`s been 4 years now and I feel they represented themselves honestly.I appreciate the comments people have been making about my site. I actively design the thing (mostly myself) and sometimes the headaches truly become nightmares! I don`t have much experience in web design, so each new "code" I figure out, is one piece at a time.I hope to help you all find the earthborn & handmade items you have dreamed to own. Again thanks for the kind words.

    ... I wasn`t sure why this post was started with such little direction either. That`s why I just started with... "here`s mine too..."

    You were correct.  I started this post because I wanted my site critiqued.  I am new here and my business is new to the internet world.  Since there are so many professional bookkeepers, I`m trying to find ways to say "mine is different," but I`m having a hard time showing that, even though I know I am where I am at here in Ohio. 
    I am not easily offended.  If I can`t handle constructive critisism, I wouldn`t ask for it! 
    Thanks everyone!

    Industry Links) but the look and feel didn`t leave me feeling confident about your experience. I don`t see any testimonials. You have "supporters/sponsors" but that doesn`t lead me to a method of checking up on your skills or accomplishments as a bookkeeper, and especially not, your skills as a consultant.I am sure other will have much better comments than I... so stand by.

    Thank you for your input.  I do have testimonials, but they are toward the bottom of two of the pages.  I will have to move them.  I am also in the process of collecting more of them from my existing clients. 
    Maybe what I should be responding to someone as if they have sought out the services of a bookkeeper/business consultant because they know what they need.  Maybe there isn`t a need to educate from this stand point.  Lets face it, nobody is just going to be looking up bookkeeping to find out what it is. haha.

    I think people are going to be looking for a bookkeeper with skills to help their own business. Maybe I should ask you this... I have a bookkeeper. I only talk with them about once every 3 or 4 months. I keep my books in the manner they requested me to do so when we first came in contact with each other. Why should I move from my current bookkeeper to you? What can you do for me that I am not already getting? I would make this clear.Maybe you are not looking to build your clients from established businesses with bookkeepers already in place. If that`s the case, why would I go to you first... before looking around at other options?
