Everyone in the Bitcoin industry is aware of the great rewards of using Bitcoin in regards to transactions fees compared to credit cards. To make it simple please just share this info and let them decide for themselves.


Credit Card Fees: 

Business News Daily Article

While merchant services providers do cover all credit and debit card needs for a business, it comes at a cost. Business owners should expect to pay numerous fees each month and per transaction for the ability to accept credit and debit card payments. Typically, average fees include the following:

Monthly statement fee (on average, $10 per month)

Monthly minimum fee (on average, $25 per month)

Gateway monthly payment (usually $5 to $15 per month)

Transaction fees (anywhere between 0.5 percent and 5 percent per processed transaction, plus 20 cents to 30 cents for each transaction made)

Since the rates can vary greatly among providers, it is important that business owners accepting credit and debit cards for the first time shop around to ensure the best deal.

Coindesk Article: Bitcion Transaction Fees Slashed Tenfold

Making it cheaper to send transactions

The core developers first started discussing the possibility of slashing transaction fees for the coin around three months ago, in this post on the mailing list. At the time, developer Mike Hearn mentioned that the last reduction in transaction fees were about six months earlier, from 50k satoshis to 10k satoshis, in the 0.8.2 release of the reference client (which was released in May 2013).

That held up for a while, but with the spike in pricing, it puts the average transaction fee at around 5 cents of the US dollar. This latest patch would reduce it to half a cent.
