We live in the internet era- an age when nearly everything is or can be done online. In fact whether you offer online services or not plays a major role in getting you customers and more importantly in retaining customers. This is especially true for payments; people prefer it if you offer online payment options as it is convenient and much quicker. Besides the traditional payment options are slowly becoming obsolete. There is also the added benefit that it will make your life also infinitely easier, receiving payments- wise. So if you aren’t there already, here is what receivable management services gurus suggest you do.
- Accept Credit and Debit Card Payments Online– This is, of course, assuming that you have a website. If you do, look into getting a payment gateway added on your website so that you can process online payments. If you don’t have a website, need I say more, get yourself a website. You need online presence for your business to grow.
- Facilities for Autopay– Autopay is an option that deducts a fixed amount from previously fixed accounts on a regular basis. This comes in handy when you have customers who have a subscription with you or have you on a retainer. Receivable management services gurus say that this ensures that you get paid on time and your customer doesn’t have to remember or take the trouble to send you payments every month.
- Email Invoices– Save paper. Go green! Besides nobody likes paper invoices anymore. Email your invoices; not only will they reach your client on time, they will also see it immediately. You will no longer have delays from invoices not reaching on time or being missed in the mail.
We cannot escape it; the internet is transforming the world, making it a smaller place with each passing day. Embrace it and let the internet change your life as well. It is a change for the better.
