We went from a 30 day due, to a 15 day due, to now "Due on receipt." Took us awhile to realize waiting for money was dumb and we need it for our hurting cash flow. Things like CC payments, square, and Locqus help a bit as well. But its a slow change over to having someone hound and call the slow/late payers. Also, keeping the crews up to date on who is paying who isn't is a huge help as well. We can cut off customers on the fly.

prepay sounds like an amazing thing to do, but I feel our route would be up in arms. Wary about that first hit of losses we would take on people not liking that option. Also, if it is dry or they call off with a pre-pay are you keeping track of the credits to their account. I suppose credits on the account are better than debits to the account!

Stop mowing if he's not paying you and if he asks why you haven't been coming, tell him you haven't been coming because you owe me $250 and you haven't been paying me.
