: I am planning to sell for the first time at a craft fair here in Gilbert,AZ. I would like to be able to process my customer's debit cards, but don't know how to get myself setup for such a system. I have no business license, the city has aranged for sellers to be "covered" for this event...Thanks in advance for any guidence!

I'm confused--you mean debit cards in particular? Or that you need a merchant services account, so you can take credit cards *and* debit cards?
You can always check the bank you're doing business with now, to see if they offer merchant service accounts to small craft businesses. It's not the cheapest option, but it's a way to get your foot in the door. Or you can start with an outfit like Novus, which consistently gets high marks for service and cost. My rep (Bob Schoen) serves New England--he's at 1-800-239-7696 and he's a wonderful guy. There are tons of other companies, but this is the one I use.
