Photography Conundrum: She doesn't accept credit cards

Recommended Posts

merchant accounts are very expensive...alot of wedding photogs probably prefer not to use them for this reason.

 

most of the vendors i used either wanted certified check or money wired (or cash)

Yup, I'd ask for the contract amendment and see what she says. I know with my photog, I changed a bit of the verbage and he was fine with it. He also only did wire transfer or check. I offered PayPal, and he gave me the schpeel about the fee (which I swear for the deposit was so damn minimal I really thought it was a bit ridiculous, but hey..business is business) but whatever. The contract is what I was most concerned about; getting everything in writing.

Many photographers don't' offer credit card service because it's very easy for clients to file a charge back(say if you cancel your wedding and want your deposit back) and it's very hard for us to prove anything,even if we have contracts.
