Set-up a business bank account at your local bank. You will need a "DBA" or articles of incorporation to open a business account. It is a good idea to pick a bank that is close to the Salon for practical purposes. In some cases, the bank may help you file your business license if you open a business account with them.
Often times your bank will offer merchant services to businesses. Discuss their services and determine if they are right for you. Companies such as Square (
www.square.com) or Go Payment (
www.gopayment.com) are one-stop-shops for everything you need to accept credit cards. It is a good idea to be set-up with a credit card processor on your first day of business. At this time, My Salon Suite only provides a Wifi connection, so any solution must operate on this type of network.
