How to Politely Tell Clients to PAY UP

How to Politely Tell Clients to PAY UP

I really got a kick out of this explainer vid.

Check it out and tell us what you think.

I’m not plugging Zencash here at all, I just love their process of keeping on outstanding “invoicees”.

I mean, who doesn’t like to get paid on time, right?

  • They start with a polite thank-you shortly after an invoice is delivered. (“We aren’t going to forget about you, dear client!”)
  • Then a friendly reminder just before the due date. (“Yep, we haven’t forgot. Don’t forget about us.”)
  • Past due — Hey, you’re a couple weeks past due. Is the check in the mail? (“We want our money, but we’re still at the point where comic relief is offered”)
  • Way past due — collections.

Pretty hard for anyone to claim they “forgot” the payment was due either, right?

Wouldn’t it be nice if all our bill collectors provided such a friendly and comprehensive approach?

Are there any methods you’ve found work as well, or better than Zencash’s?

The last few months here in Canada have seen several in the hospitality industry who earn most of their living on tips getting official letters from the Canada Revenue Agency. These letters state that the CRA believes these folks aren’t being honest about the tips they receive. The government agency believes many have omitted tens of thousands in earnings from their tax forms.

The business world should not be boring. Agreed?
