I have to admit, I don't use a credit card very often. I have my bank debit card, and get by with that except for a very rare occasion. However, when I do need or choose to use a credit card, sometimes it is frustrating when a business doesn't accept them. For example, the grocery store in our small town only takes bank/debit cards or cash!
I guess many businesses are worried about finding cheaper transaction rates. I understand this, especially when you're talking about small companies in even smaller towns. That's why it is so important to get the best merchant account you can possibly find! Once you get set up and started, your business will run so much more smoothly.
