Exactly.  I like the "NOW" part.

For starters, I think it's simpler having each person handle their own
AP.  I don't really want to have the responsibility of trying to collect
money from bum clients that I didn't even deal with.

I don't have MC/Visa processing ability myself (I've never
concentrated on doing small jobs).  If somebody else did, and a
customer requested it, it would be nice if we could work out a little
