Recommendation for Your Practice
We encourage practices to carefully consider the impact of processing fees when choosing to use credit or debit cards. Dandy recommends using a bank account as a payment method to avoid these fees. A bank account incurs no processing fees, making it a more cost-effective option. To add a bank account instead, head to our article, Adding a Bank Account as Primary Payment Method in the Dandy Portal, to learn how.
