I’ve just started out in business too.

I suggest that you keep with PayPal. I’ve just bought the PayPal Here device and plan to use it for my customers. I’m only charged 1.95% per transaction.*It means though, I can accept payment wherever I go, whether it be at my office or at a clients’ office.

Most businesses I know these days, charge their clients a 3% credit card fee so I don’t see why you can’t do the same.

The alternative is an expensive setup with the banks. You’ll need a business account, a merchant account plus pay a monthly merchant terminal fee PLUS transaction fees . This can cost you mega bucks before you’ve even made a sale, whereas PayPal only charge you per transaction.
