Make it easy for people to give you money – whether you are a company or an individual. Have a product to sell, a service to offer? Something as simple as a friend owes you money or you are a college student waiting for more funds? Waiting for a check in the mail doesn’t have to happen anymore. Collections become a thing of the past. Additional invoices don’t need to be processed and mailed. Set up these simple processes and start depositing that money:
Square – take credit cards easily without contracts or monthly fees and with a free card reader.
– set up a free account, millions use it daily. It works. Not a company? Retired? Don’t work? No problem. As long as you have an email address and a bank account, you can send and receive money.
Send paper invoices? Make the online payment web address easy to find and use such as www.(your company)/payment. A long, hard to type in URL does not work.
Make an online payment option clear on your website, don’t make someone search for it. Don’t make us register, log in, etc. Just give your customer a place where he or she can enter a credit card or PayPal and be done with it.
