This is what I pay to accept credit cards!?

In the process of still getting my financial records in order for the new bookkeeper, I found out exactly how much money it has cost me over the last 7 months to accept credit cards. The total:


This is including a monthly free to have a professional level account with PayPal that includes online terminal services to accept credit cards by phone, a monthly fee from a credit card processing service that allows me to limit inventory (without this, PayPal would just sell an unlimited number of spots in a class that actually only has 6 spots in it) and that little percentage that PayPal takes from each dollar I get.

Holy freakin' cow!!!! By the end of the year, these fees will add up to enough to take a cruise to Alaska.
