Once you’ve delivered your side of the agreement, it’s time to send your customers an invoice. Invoicing them as quickly as possible helps to encourage them to pay faster. After all, if you’ve delivered your products on Monday, why wait until Friday to send your customers an invoice? If you’re billing your clients for services rendered, sending invoices upon the completion of a project serves another purpose: it encourages them to pay while the value of your work is still fresh in their minds.
Firstly, if you’re addressing your invoice to your contact on the customer side but you’re constantly experiencing late payments, you might want to check with them about who’s in charge of paying you within your customer’s company. There’s a likelihood that your contact diligently forwards your invoice to the finance team, but it could be lying lost and forgotten in the latter’s inbox. Secondly, if you’re sending your invoice to more than one person, you’re also running the risk of everyone leaving it on the backburner, as everyone assumes that someone else will be taking care of it.
How do you accept payments from your customers? For example, do you only accept cheques sent in the mail, or through PayPal? If you do, it may be time to rethink your policy on payment methods. By setting up more payment options for customers to choose from, you’re making it easier for them to pay you. This way, instead of having to make a special trip to the post office, they’ll be able to pay you in a way they’re comfortable and familiar with.
