I used a simple iphone app with Propay. It is only $10 for the app and
additional 35 cents for the transaction. I have to wait for the page
to load, type in the card number, sales amount and the email address.
You can imagine it's not that easy typing on an iphone and try to
smile and do small talk with the customer at the same time. I found it
kind of slow, whether it is 3G or Wifi. No instant receipt print out
but I get an email confirmation and my customer gets an email receipt,
then I don't have to input it with the computer after the show.
I just upgraded to a merchant account (higher yearly fee, but lower
commission rate) so that I can get a swipe attachment to my G3 phone.
I don't know how well it works yet, but I hope to give up my knuckle
buster and be a bit more efficient & professional looking comes
holiday selling season. I do have 30 days to try this thingie out and
downgrade back to my old rate if I want to.
Hope this helps
