I didn't even know that was possible, if I hadn't met with him and shook his hand and watched him go in the house I might have though I was getting scammed, lol. Man it's getting high tech.
That can also be set up for every week or every 2 weeks. I have customers who send me a check every 2 weeks through automatic online banking. They don't have to be at home when I mow. Some of the checks come in advance of the mowing.
I just mow and then get paid by mail or the person at the home. Nobody gets a month behind that way. Nobody gets confused about when I did the work. I don't have to extend a months credit to people I don't know. Even with commercial, the business could go under and be left owing you a lot of money.
Somebody is late paying after a month. You have to keep mowing to keep up with the growth. That would drive me nuts
Just would not work for me, but it works for many
