How do I choose which credit card types to accept?

FreshBooks gives you the ability to accept online payments from multiple card types: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and some lesser-used cards (like Discover, Diners Club and JCB).

To set up online payments, you can get started here.

Before enabling other card types, check with your payment gateway to see which cards they’re able to process first. There may also be different transaction fees for certain cards depending on which payment gateway you’re using.

Then follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Click on the Accept Credit Cards sub-tab
  3. Click on the edit link in the Credit Card Settings box
  4. Edit link to change accepted credit card types.
  5. Check off the boxes next to the card types you’d like to accept
  6. Types of credit cards you can accept.
  7. Click Save to finish.
