We use the Square and charge our patrons a $.25 transaction fee.  The Square has been great for us.  I second everything Sadie from Brighton said.

We use a company called Elavon.  With their knowledge, the transaction fee is passed on to the patron.

Hope this helps.

Hello Everyone,
Our library currently doesn't accept debit/credit cards but we have made it our goal to be able to by the end of next year. We are looking for the best solution for both the library and our patrons (cost/convenience, etc.). If you currently accept debit/credit cards, what hardware/software/service do you use? Do you pass the transaction fee on to your patrons or does the library pay for it?  Is there anything that we need to know when making a decision like this? Any information or advice that you are willing to share would be extremely helpful.
Thank you in advance,
