Look into Intuit too.

If you don't do that many transaction per month they actually waive the monthly service fee.

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
One of the most appealing aspects of Square is that, unlike nearly every other processor, Square credit card processing has only one fee: the processing fee of a transaction. There are no other fees that are typical of credit card processing, such as activation fees, monthly fees, gateway fees, downgrade fees and early termination fees. Square has no additional monthly fees whatsoever and no monthly minimum processing fees.

No matter the card type, merchants pay a single flat rate of 2.75% for swiped transactions, or 3.15% + $0.15 per typed transaction (as of this review). Although the transaction rate is higher than the “Qualified” rate of most traditional merchant accounts, it is comparable to the “Mid-Qualified” and “Non-Qualified” downgrade surcharges that about 80% of most transactions experience in a traditional merchant account setup. The rate is, however, much more expensive than the Interchange Pass-through rate pricing model. Given that most merchants do not have Interchange Pass-through, the fact that Square has no monthly fees and no time commitment makes it one of the most affordable credit processing options in the market. Nevertheless, Square does have some drawbacks.

Square does not verify the credit history of its customers (a benefit for some) so it sets a few limitations to avoid losses to fraud. There is no limit to the amount of money that can be accepted per transaction or per month, but Square will hold card-not-present sales for 30 days if more than $1000 is charged within any rolling seven day period. Therefore, If a merchant types the credit card information into the phone instead of swiping it through the card reader, the merchant will have a rolling seven day processing “limit” of $1000 that allows him/her to keep accepting transactions once it has been reached. Keep in mind that the limit only applies to transactions that are typed into the phone. Typed-in charges under the $1000 limit, and all swiped transactions, are electronically deposited into the merchant’s linked checking account usually within 24 business hours.

For merchants that regularly process more than $1000 in seven days, Square provides two options to circumvent the deposit hold. With the first, Square periodically reviews accounts and will raise the limit automatically for merchants that regularly process over the $1000 in card-not-present sales, have few refunds, and very few to no chargebacks. With the second option, merchants can request a form to provide more information about their business in order to raise the deposit limit. This form can be requested by emailing Square.
