    Been using square the last 6 or 7 years so just I just keep using it out of habit. Plus funds are deposited faster than HCP. Tend to use HCP to bill the customer when no ones there to pay at the end of the job. I will eventually phase out of square but for now I like to have both options.

    Square is 2.75% - 3.5% + $0.15 per transaction.
    HouseCall Pro is a FLAT 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction. So over the long haul HCP is significantly cheaper.
    Deposits are 1 day slower than Square. HCP is 48 hr, but has NO LIMITS... ex if you charge thousands of dollars it will ALWAYS deposit 48 hrs, whereas Square might put a hold for a week on it.

    I use Invoice2go app there cc fee is 2.9% I can Email my invoices out. When the customer opens the invoice there is a link that says pay now and take their credit card information. Works perfectly for me. Most of the properties I clean are vacant and the homeowner is not home.

    Yes I take credit cards. It's 2017 buddy. Not 1989.
    Square.
    Have to accept credit cards if you want to look professional. Your competitors are accepting credit cards. I guarantee it.

    I had PayPal register at one point and then they discontinued it. So I'm guessing they brought it back?
