Advice on accepting phone orders
I have a service business and require payment up front. I had too many folks not showing up for appointments, so I decided to start requiring a paid deposit, which I sent through PayPal via email. Some people still would not pay on time and as a result, I lose that appointment time because they don`t show up.I`m ready to charge in full or maybe even 1/2 when I book the appointment on the phone. I`ve searched the forums and found mostly stuff for retail and web merchant accounts, although I have a few ideas including NOVA, which is looking about the best so far, or even Truth in Processing.Does anyone have any suggestions or opinions for collecting payment over the phone? I would most liklely accept at least Visa and MC, but I would also like to accept check payments and possibly bank draft.Thanks!
