Hi, I'm Patrick Jones, the creator of DoggieDashboard, the free pet-business software.
My mission is to give you the tools to better manage your pet-service business. Processing credit cards requires expensive security audits, a legal team to write contracts and very complex computer code. Since DoggieDashboard is free, adding credit card processing just isn't financially possible.
That's where Shopify comes in. DoggieDashboard is a Shopify affiliate. If you start using Shopify to charge credit cards, we get a referral bonus. We use that money to pay our hosting, database & server fees. Since DoggieDashboard is 100% free, that money really helps keep the lights on (no joke).
With thousands of users, Shopify is an easy-to-use (and very secure) credit card billing platform for small businesses. They provide credit card swiping, inventory management, an online shopping cart and more. If you're selling merchandise at your dog daycare or pet boarding business, and you need a way to process credit cards (instead of doing everything in cash), Shopify is the answer.
At times you have to admit that you can't do it all. DoggieDashboard is great for managing your business, but Shopify is king for credit card payments. All I ask is that you do your own research, and should you like what they offer, give them a try.
