Questions

For you digital marketing / SEO / PPC guys out there, how do you bill your clients? Authorize.net or Quickbooks? Or something new on the market?

Most millionaires that I talk to use either Authorize.net or QuickBooks. Currently, I have both because we are in the process of transfering everything to Authorize.net because they have a smaller % I think around 2.2% where QuickBooks is 2.75%. But their UI is way worse. So I just wanted to get your thoughts and tally up the people who use one vs the other. There are advantages of both.

Authorize is my choice. Don't use them directly-- set up your own UI.

Though, from a "millionaire" point of view you shouldn't be accepting CC for medium/large marketing jobs to begin with. Any firm with authority should be able to have a "check, money order, or transfer" policy. There are too many reasons not to do credit card.

Anyway-- if you'd like some more advice regarding how to take your firm to the next level, let me know and set up a call.

There are many other options out there, all depends on your business. Are you using Quickbooks for any thing other than billing?

Hello,

With your business type, I would imagine that you are keying-in most of your payments or that your costumers are keying-in the information themselves. There are several options out there that are better than Quickbooks and Authorize.net, and have comparable fees.

For example, the I would recommend one of the following methods or a combination of the: 1. A virtual terminal where you will collect and enter the payment information yourself, an invoicing service that will send the invoice and direct the customer to a payment page, or a "buy now" type button that you can put on your website and direct customers to enter in their payment information.

I would need more detail about your business before I could start giving specific recommendations. Feel free to schedule a call with me if you wish to find a solid solution.
