This did not work for me the 1 time I tried it. I now get paid in cash on the day of mowing or if a custome pays by check, I get paid for 4 cuts after the first cut. I once had a problem getting paid in cash as the customer left before I finished. I always find out where my customers work with smalltalk. I then proceeded to let him know I was a friend of the owner of the company and I got invited back to mow again and collected for both cuts. I never returned after that.
