Being able to take credit cards at a shoot with has been a great tool for US real estate shooters for a couple of years. Now  is available in Canada.

  1. Many real estate photographers put a lot of time and energy into getting paid.
  2. There aren't that many cases of photographers not getting paid.
  3. processing is clearly the most popular mobil credit card processing service used by real estate photographers in the US. There are no monthly fees, just a 2.75% swipe fee. You get the money the next day and you can send a receipt via email. Pretty sweet service!

Being able to take credit cards for shoot payment at the shoot is a huge convenience for the customer and saves the photographer time and energy in collecting later. It's great to see this service now in Canada!
