Allow online/credit card payment for library fines

Allow library fines to be paid online or at check-out with credit cards. This will increase cash flow, rather than waiting months to collect.

  2. The library would then have to pay the merchant fee to the credit card company for processing.

  3. Raise the fees for late fees and allow for online processing.

    add in the merchant fee for convenience. They do this for parking tickets.

  6. I agree with the idea, and about adding in the processing fee for folks who pay online. It's not much and I bet most folks will pay it no problem. This one's a no-brainer.

  7. This is a great idea. Add a convenience fee to offset any fees from the credit card companies. You could also can add an option for giving a donation and or paying fines. Patrons could round their fines up to the next dollar amount or even give more if they would like!

  8. I would raise the fees for books that are late to include the3.5% transaction cost -- then a credit card online would be easy and cost effective.
