There are so many surprises on the journey of entrepreneurship. One of them is with all the fees you can end up paying!
I knew I wanted to be able to take credit cards for my FundraisingCoach.com work. But when I signed up for a merchant account, no one warned me about the “gotchas”! Between the bank, the merchant account, Authorize.net, and the credit card companies, there were lots of opportunities for fees. I wonder if all the layers re to make these fees seem less significant. And these fees were removed automatically from my bank account. I know it’s the cost of doing business but I didn’t like the roller coaster ride. I’d see sales happen so I’d think I’d made a certain amount of money. But there was less in my account than I expected due to them taking fees out multiple times a month.
A few months ago, I started with Infusionsoft Payments. One thing I love about Infusionsoft Payments is how straightforward it is. What is sent to my account is mine to keep. No games, no gotchas.
And no gotchas lets me focus on what I love doing: helping my clients and creating new content!
