  1. Thanks for all the responses. I went with the local guy(Capital Bankcard), though Elevon was my second choice. For those of you doing high volume(over 10K/month), you might want to look into Fattmerchant. Flat monthly subscription of $99 + 8 cents per transaction + direct cost of interchange One time cost of $250 for counter terminal No contracts, no fees to cancel
  2. Thanks for the responses. I'm using Shopkey right now but I don't really like it. I preferred Alldata for management software but I do like Mitchell's labor time guide better. I'm thinking about going back to Alldata, or something else and getting a separate labor time guide like real -time. My local processor is offering 1.5 to 1.8% including transaction fee and $11 a month. He does several automotive shops around here and these are the fees they are seeing. From your responses it looks like this may be a good deal.
  3. Hey everyone. I'm planning on opening in about 3 weeks and am looking for a credit card processing company. Are there any geared for our type of business? Does anyone recommend Intuit for it's ease of integration with Quickbooks? I'll be doing around $10,000 a month in CC payments averaging $200.00 per RO. Payments are predominately Visa or Mastercard swiped. A very small percentage of Amex, Discover or over the phone. If there is a company name that a lot of you experienced members would recommend, I would like to hear it.

    Hi all

    I found this site by accident and have been really impressed with the information it contains. I've been a tech for around 28 years, the first 19 at new car stores and the last 9 at a used car store. I am in the process of purchasing the store and I know this site will greatly help me to succeed . This is a 3 bay shop in Southeastern Wisconsin and I've been the sole service employee during my time here. I believe this to be a great opportunity in that the location is excellent and the previous owner is going to continue his business here not only providing me with rent, but service work as well. I know this cooperation will be an advertising nightmare but I believe the benefits will outweigh the negatives. Anyway, just wanted to say hello and I welcome any comments.
