Thanks Pete,

This is all new to me. But I did have fun last night looking for things to sell my friends so I could swipe their cards into my iPhone... Hmmmm what else can I sell.....

Not saying if it's right or wrong, just that if you want a credit card account, that's what's required.  I got the terminal for free in exchange for signing up for a 2-year contract, so yes free swipers are available in exchange for commitments, just like cell phones.

For online orders, try Paypal - people can pay by credit card without having a PayPal account and their fees are pretty comparable to the credit card processors, especially for casual use.
