Hello All, as we approach Christmas and thoughts turn to carolling to raise money for charity in front of the local supermarkets I am concerned that my own habit of not carrying cash and paying for my shopping with card is going to be the norm for many shoppers and potential donators will not be able to donate easily meaning charities suffer. Is there a good source of swipe payment machines that can be rented or borrowed to facilitate easier collection of donations? Is technology still being avoided due to transaction charges or rental fees. Keen to see if there are any other bands out there who have grasped technology and are benefiting from taking the leap. Looking at some websites it would seem in my opinion only the larger more affluent bands could afford the fees. So far I've not found one that will rent systems for just a weekend. Minimum period is a week. Goodbox.com is the site where I did research.
