I basically tell my customers who want to pay by credit card that there is a 5% adder to cover merchant bank fees. Sometimes they’ll opt for Net 30 but most will pay the 5%. It’s only a very small part of our revenue, so not a big issue for me. Mostly the smaller orders which are mostly from universities. That said, I switched merchant accounts from BBVA (now PNC) to Chase which has cut the fees about in half.
I appreciate your helpful response.
Thank you.

RavinDave...I checked his website and you will need someone more experienced than him if your business is "not so small anymore". You also need someone licensed in Texas.

I have used firms for similar efforts in several states, including Texas, and this firm did strong work. They are kind of expensive, but they are as good as it gets based on my experience. I know Ryan Randall well if you are interested. In fact, when it comes to being able to bring in industry-specific expertise depending on the nature of your business and what you decide to do in setting up your business with the future in mind, I would ensure you work directly with Ryan. He will then most likely leverage other resources within their firm for the family-specific elements of your estate and business planning.

Hello AurantiacoFan
If I were to contact Ryan Randall and tell him he comes highly recommended by AurantiacoFan on VolNation, would he know who the heck I was talking about?
