hi -
my friends and i are trying to go legit and have a sample sale where folks can pay with *gasp* an actual credit card. 
But we don't know how to get our paws on a credit card machine.  we don't want to buy one, just rent.  any advice?

You should ring your bank and they will provide you with all that you need to accept credit cards.

I don't know what country you are in but here in the UK my credit card machine cost me about 400 just to get it, then you have to pay a yearly fee for the rental and then of course charges every time someone buys something! As far as I know you can't buy them you just rent them anyway but it's sooooooo expensive!

Yeah, I've never heard of it being possible to short-term rent a credit card machine. And the long term rent on them is just insane.

What I have done in the past is if the person does not or never has had a paypal account, you can have them write down ALL of their credit card information (inlcuding the little safety code) and all their shipping informationa nd then when you get back to your computer you can make the payment through paypal (you know the "pay without a paypal account" feature)

It's a hassle though. I would just say cash or check (and because I'm untrusting and know that bad check people prey on small retailers and mobile fairs/shows/etc, ask for their credit card info too if you take a check, so you can cover yourself)
