  • Thank you, Chris, for taking the time to write a review of the Royal Oak Outdoor Art Fair. We appreciate all your help.
  • Chris, thanks so much for all your support. It is appreciated!
  • Chris. Thank you for the opportunity. I would love to earn your business. The device to which you are referring is about 400 bucks my cost. We don't normally give those away for free as we would need you to process about 75 grand before we even neared the break even point. We make a very small percentage of the processing fee as it is divided up between the card issuers, the back end processing networks, the settlement banks and us. Further our cost on the transaction varies depending on about 2o different types of debit and credit cards you accept.  This would be a losing venture since he average merchant we board in this niche process less than a grand a month. And since they are no other income streams for us (I.e no monthly fees, annual fees no minimums etc) we would never recover from a 400 dollar up front loss.  The free device we offer for the pay as you is a extremely durable swipe only card reader which links to a payment processing gateway which processes the card and emails a receipt to the card holder  This gateway can also be linked to your website for e commerce. You can use a manual imprinter if you want hard copies and a paper trail and I would be happy to give you one of those for free as well.  I can also discount the swipe / print device but I would have to know what kind of volume you are pushing to quote you on that. If you like to discuss these options please email me at mike@1nbcard.com. Thanks again.
