i do not have a merchant account set up at this time. i receive the set up fee in the form of a check and have set up a paypal account to process monthly payments for companies that sign up for my program.
i am just wondering. would i seem more legitimate or credible in the eyes of local biz owners if i set up a merchant account instead?
i would then draft the money directly from their corporate checking account or whatever credit card they wanted the funds to come from.
wondering what some of your thoughts or experiences are regarding this matter. at this point i am leaning towards opening a merchant account because i think i am losing sales and may be seen as less than professional by some potential clients.
what do you think? is paypal mainstream enough these days that it doesn't matter anymore?
thanks in advance.
