Actually, they're two of my best / fastest paying accounts.

I send an invoice to the store on the first of the month, I have a check from Bentonville AR by the 10th.

Now, I'm sure some of that has to do with the chain of command, meaning it's how fast the store / district manager sign off on the invoice, and if you get one that isn't that great about signing off, then it'll take a while, but at the same time, they're not going to want to pay alot of late fees because that drives the margins up.

One year due to a clerical error on Wal-Marts side of things, they paid me the whole account up front. I took the check in, talked to the manager about it, and he and the district manager signed off on it. It'd be nice to have more accounts like that, but at the same time, I'd probably blow it all by June and be broke before the end of the summer.
Give thanks, for all that He has given.
