    I'm not very clued up on internent payments or implementing them on my website. What I do at the moment is take cash/cheque if the customers is in, if they are not local then I will leave a stamped addressed envalope, as the price of stamps has gone through the roof I'd like to change to online payments.
    Is there a free way to do this and how do I go about it.
    Thanks Knoxy.

    I have my bank details on my card which I leave when I've cleaned and they're not in. My customers are happy to pay online straight to my bank account. I do stipulate that they use their address as reference as its easier for me to cross reference with my records.

    I would recommend paypal, it works out about 30p for a £5 payment, and 50p for a £10 payment. When weigh that against cost of petrol, its cheaper than driving back out, and cheaper that cheques, if you account for your stamp, and business banking charges for cheques.

    I emailed that company and got this result:

    Dear David,

    Thank you for your email.

    The device that we are currently offering is a swipe&sign solution, which allows you to accept any MasterCard credit cards and Diners Club cards.

    We are coming out with a chip&pin solution very soon that will allow you to accept Visa and debit card payments as well. We started taking registrations for our Chip&PIN device lately and the first devices will be shipping shortly. Merchants who have registered with our current solution can automatically upgrade for the new device.

    Do not hesitate to contact us should you have any more questions.

    Best regards,
    Liis Rosenberg

    Errrr,...don't use have to be face to face with the customer to swipe their credit card?
    So how is that going to help in cutting down ppl that don't pay because they are not in?
