In order to stay competitive, electricians need to provide a variety of payment options to their customers. The fact is that cash payments don’t work for everyone, and accepting checks can be risky, since checks can bounce. The cost of services for an electrician can vary greatly depending upon the job being done. If the job is only $100, a customer is more likely to be willing to pay cash, but if it is more than that, customers are unlikely to have that much cash on-hand and they will need the ability to pay with a credit card. Additionally, for very large projects costing several thousands of dollars, customers may not have the funds to pay available in their bank accounts, so credit cards are a great option as the credit card companies are extending a line of credit (also known as a loan) to the cardholders.
Offering your customers the ability to pay with a credit card is essential for an electrician, but credit card processors often charge hefty fees. Charge.com has amazingly affordable deals for electricians who want to accept credit cards.
When an electrician accepts credit cards it gives him or her the security of knowing that their services will be paid for. It also eliminates the risk of taking payments via check. It can take several days for a check to bounce, but if a credit transaction is declined, you will know instantly.
