Once the due-date has passed, it’s time to follow up with your clients before you begin implementing late charges. After all, it’s possible that your invoice has slipped their mind, or it’s been lost in the mail. For a start, you can send out reminders like a personalized email, a text, or a phone call. Sending these reminders lets you remind your client about the money they owe you, and that you are serious about getting your invoice paid. If you’re sending your invoices through email, start using software that updates you once the recipient opens the message.
If you’ve noticed your customers are putting off payment until the last possible date, it might be time to start incentivizing early payments by offering a small discount for invoices that are paid in advance. To do this, you need to decide on a specific early time frame. Make sure you feature these incentives in your invoice to motivate the customer to react to the offer you’re putting in front of them. By rewarding your customers for their business, you’ll be able to encourage loyalty while ensuring they pay you promptly.
Some business owners spend up to 10% of their work time on invoices. If you feel like you’re spending too much time on invoicing clients and chasing them for payment, it could be time to start looking into cloud accounting software like Xero and QuickBooks, especially if you’re using other cloud software like Shopify (and TradeGecko!). In addition to enabling you to prepare and send invoices quickly, cloud accounting software helps you to manage overdue invoices by automating reminders. Also, instead of needing to return to your office to send an invoice, you’ll be able to send invoices anywhere.
