A list of must have’s for your Notary business (or business in general)

A list of supplies and items every notary should have

Receipt book  

To record your monetary business transactions and to give to customers.

If you don’t have a Squared Up credit card scanner or if something goes wrong with your phone and you’re not able to use it.

A receipt is also like a business card, it’s a way for the customer to remember you and find you in the future for service.
