    this is gonna be the first gun show i go to. Just wondering how many dealers are set up to take credit/debit cards there. I'm guessing cash is the preferred payment method, but i dont feel comfortable hauling around a bunch of cash.

    Also anybody going to this weeks show?

    I also read a previous thread about NWFA t-shirts so there..i would like one haha.

    I will be there in my standard spot. I take any form of payment as long as it's cash. There is an ATM there so you can always get some cash there if you find something you can't live without. I will have lots of AR stuff and some AK stuff there too....maybe I'll bring my 10/22 to get rid of also. Hopefully, I will have some new AR receivers with me too...Complete lowers for less than anyone else at the show will have one for, guaranteed. I will only have 10, so get em while they're hot!

    You get a better bargain when using cash, but your "bigger" dealers will take both cash and credit.

    This will be my first show with my business. Ill be set up for cc. Watch out most charge 2 bucks to 3% for running a cc. My theory is if the grocery store doesn't charge anything for a cc, then why should I.

    I'm not a small business owner, however, alot of people don't understand the fees credit card companies charge for EACH transaction:

    "When a business accepts a credit card payment, the processor deducts anywhere from 1 to 5 percent as a fee. The majority of this percentage goes to the card issuing company. Some merchant account providers may add their own percentage to this fee, which is why the base rate is not always consistent. If you have less-than perfect-credit, your merchant account percentage will be closer to the higher range. "

    Larger companies, i.e. gocery chains, Wal-mart, Target, can negatiate lower fees, where smaller business owners cannot.

    ammo.com had lots of primers last month. Powder and bullets are still up for grabs even though they are slowly comming back.

    I am aware of this. The cc processing company I use also charges about 21 cents per transaction and also a very small percentage. I would rather pay the fees for my customers to make them happy instead of charging them more.
