The merchant accounts that we setup are about $30 / month + small transaction charges. The Internet Point of Sale System is about $250 to setup and then $30 / month, plus very small transaction charges. Plus you have a complete accounting management system included for your merchant account and by using it, you save the $450 to $800 for those expensive credit card machines. The system replaces the need for the machine.
