Merchant account services act as a middleman between businesses and your customers’ credit card company. There are three types of merchant accounts: retail, internet, and MOTO (mail order/telephone order).

Agree +Casey Monroe Conducted a year long study on all of the major credit card processors and merchant account providers and was VERY surprised on how expensive some are.

It's been a pleasure.

It's with regret that I announce that today is my last day here with Google, and with the Google Small Business Community, as I'm moving on to a new position with a new company. I'm excited about the opportunity, but I'm also deeply going to miss each and every member of this community.

Together we've had the opportunity to build something truly amazing. I'm confident that the community is in good hands with +Brielle Bullard, +Berrak Sarikaya, and +Lauren Kashuk, and the rest of the Google Small Business Community team—as well as each of you. You've made this community one of the most supportive, constructive, and positive places on the Internet, and I can't thank you enough.

Looking forward to seeing you around.

What the Biggest Community Conference in the World Taught Me About Small Business

Last week, I attended the CMX Summit (http://cmxhub.com/), a gathering of CEOs, founders, and leading community experts in San Francisco. Here are some of my favorite lessons from the CEOs and community professionals in attendance.

Always err on the side of transparency. When you’re building your product where people can see it and incorporating their feedback as you go, it makes them feel invested in you—like your success is their success too. — Ryan Hoover, Founder of ProductHunt

It’s okay to fail. The early days of a product involve a lot of trying things and making mistakes. That’s normal—own up to your mistakes and work with your customers to make them better. — Marcus Graham, Director of Community & Education at Twitch.tv

If you want to grow your audience, the most reliable and genuine way to do it is to provide them with an experience so positive that they want to talk about it. — Jess Lee, CEO of Polyvore

Embody your principles. More than ever, people care about the principles of the businesses they patronize. If you don’t embody the principles you want your community to have, they’ll know. — Jenn Sander, Global Initiatives at Burning Man

You need to take action to define your brand and what you expect from your customers, but you also need to listen to them, and let their feedback steer your decisions. — Daria Topousis, Project Manager at NASA Engineering Network

Make sure your incentives match your audience. If you want to attract a certain type of customer, make sure that the incentives and offers you’re making are attractive to that audience. Do your homework. — Erica Kuhl, Sr. Director of Community at Salesforce
