    I works out not too bad, you pay a small percent, then a fixed charge, 3.4% + 20p. So 37p for a £5 job, or 54p for a £10 job. it can cost me more between time + petrol to drive back out to them. So if I don't get customers in, in the evening when I go by to collect, I just post them an invoice asking them to pay online or by cheque.

    I have covered incorporating paypal buttons, into your website, in my creating your own website thread, in the tutorial section.

    no monthly fees, if you click pay now on my website, there is a bottom that says "dont have a paypal" you just click that and then fill out your card details, after you enter the amount you want to pay on the left.
