Many credit card payment options are available for small businesses, but which one is the best for your business?
Answering that question isn’t always simple. Besides comparing rates — which, let’s be honest, are often complicated and often include hidden fees — you have to compare the quality of service and level of transparency different credit card payment processors offer.
Essentially, though, the best online payment services for small businesses are those that make it easy for your customers to pay you and for you to accept and process those payments.
Schedulicity now accomplishes both of those goals by building in our own payment processor that works seamlessly with your appointment scheduling.
When you sign up for our Unlimited Plan you can incorporate payment processing for free! There is no expensive software to worry about, and every transaction will be billed at a flat rate of 2.5% + 15¢ for all transactions — card dip, swipe, tap, e-commerce, keyed-in transactions, and self-checkout with Norm.

What Matters To Small Businesses Matters To Us
When we first launched our scheduling platform, our main focus was to create a way for small businesses to save time and costs in their everyday workflows. Schedulicity’s built-in payment processing is an extension of that goal.
More consumers are shopping online and on mobile devices, and within physical stores, they spend as much as 100% more with credit cards than other types of payments. Your consumers are no exception, and you need the ability to process card payments without wading through rate agreements that are too high, too varied, or too confusing.
We built payment processing into Schedulicity to give small businesses like yours a better option for processing credit card transactions, both online and in-person. Like the small businesses we serve, we emphasize the importance of affordability, transparency, and optimal customer service in every feature of our app.
Here’s how our built-in payment processor, in particular, fulfills each of those principles:
• Affordability: Our flat card processing rate of 2.5% + 15¢ for for all transactions remain consistent every month and are not subject to any hidden fees. Best of all, if it isn’t the right fit for your business, you can leave at any time.
• Transparency: We’re upfront with our rates for two reasons. First, we’re proud that our rates are the lowest in the industry, and second, we want you to know what to expect before signing up. We’re just as transparent with security processes, end-of-the-month statements, policies, and everything else associated with processing your payments.
• Customer service: Our level of customer service is a big part of what makes our payment processing option — and all of our services — especially beneficial for small businesses. We’re here to help with any issue, from technical troubles to general questions about your account, at any time and for free. We’re ready to do our part to streamline and improve your experience.
When it comes to choosing a vendor for your business, it’s true that cost isn’t everything. In fact, as many as 73% of consumers willingly pay more for products and services from brands they believe are completely transparent.
But when you combine transparency and high-quality service with the lowest processing rates in the industry, you get the best of all credit card payment options for small businesses. It’s a win-win!
