If you accept credit cards that would be the best way.
How many accounts are we talking that are problem payers ?
What is your action taken when payment is not received ?
If it's a new customer the best thing to do is a have a date when you feel payment should be received, An if it's not received put a phone call in.
A simple call saying who you are , An asking if they sent payment for july's invoice
If not when do you plan on sending can can you please email us when payment is sent, So they say "we will sent it tommorow ". Now you have your date when they say it will be sent
No email tommorow call back ... to bad on them let them get sick of hearing from you.
Once you establish your for reel , An there going to hearr from you if payment isn't sent. They will get thrrr act together
^^^^^. An thsi is of therr serious about getting there windows cleaned. Let's face it some people think it's a joke , an thsi is how youbweed them out.
If after all this an no payment. Stop service An find Another account.
Yes keep after them for your money , but the last thing you want is this to be a recurring processs every month.
Some people it will be for a little bit once you straighten them out it will get sent they will get sick of hearing from you. Trust me been there done that
What I found is most people want to pay , An if you get lazy in the beginning An not put your phone calls in , then they will pay when they feel like it.
I send out over 100 invoices every month I know exactly when i should receive payment. If payment isn't received depending on the customer 2 thjmgs happen
Certain customers will get a statement in there next invoice showing payment wasn't received
The rest will get a phone call. Saying we didn't receive payment
Hey payments get lost in the mail. It's happened. So just checking.
This is the down falls of route work. Your dealing with so many accounts , An when your dealing with those kind of numbers you will always have a handful that are bad payers.
