What is the best way to accept payment from cutomers for mobile mechanic services?
I want to start my own mechanic mobile business and need to figure out what would be the best way to accept payments from customers. I won't be the one going on the job sites. Also, I have bad credit of my own.
Checks are a good place to start. You may also look to join a chamber of commerce or some other kind of business cooperative that offers credit card services to its members.
That way, you may be able to find a way to easily accept payment through a third party (typically for higher fees than if you went direct) . . . but could be a way to work around your current situation.
The fall in new company starts does not necessarily mean that the American economy is less dynamic than it used to be, or that Americans are opening up new establishments at a lower rate than they did in the late 1970s.
