i usually collect after the service is completed for most, some prepay at the beginning of the month, some are 3 months late, I had one lady who lived in fl and i could never get a hold of her, and she would make me wait until december to get my last payment. one year she pre paid for the whole seaon all at once, it was 1100...I was pretty happy about that. Next year I am thinking about putting whatever customers I can to auto pay, so the money just transfers from bank to bank, less trips to the bank for me. more time spent making money. I just need to talk to the bank and get all the details figured out. I would only do auto payment, for mowing since it is so regular.
