Payments Processing — Sole Proprietors and SMB’s look to hosted services

Asked my recommendation about implementing a payments processing backend within their Web Presence my response is look at this first.

http://quickbooks.intuit.com/payments/

This tool accepts payments / invites credit cards … and they have a device you can attach to your iphone or ipad to scan cards.

What I like — is that the few extra pennies it costs, it integrates to Quickbooks online and they own the security backend.

If / when you have time — I’d like to hear more about how you’d like payments to work.

As a rule of thumb — at our scale, especially — I do not recommend attempting to incorporate payments online within your Web Presence.  Too many security issues, too many risks.

Let’s find a better way — sending a payment request via PayPal or from QuickBooks Online.
