Might want to look towards online payments via the website. Give everyone an account number (username) and a password, build the site so that the account number only takes them to thier billing information , use online payment.. hearing what lawn monkey costs, I can not imagine the cost is much different and there are not any yearly "update" charges.

LGF, don't you use Clip? I've seen you on the forum. I use clip and I'm just now starting to email my bills. I've compiled the email addresses of most of my clients. Clip converts the bill to an Adobe file (.pdf) Most people will already have adobe. If they don't and can't open their bill, they will probably email you back, and then you can send them a link to download a free copy of Adobe.
I'll be emailing bills for the first time on 4/1. Contact me after that if you'd like to know how it goes.

I don't know how detailed your billings are, but I would think you could have a form e-mail sent to your customers, with a link to Paypal to facilitate payment. Or it could be as easy as contacting PayPal; I'm sure they've thought of something along these lines and may have a system custom-fit for this kind of thing.

.pdf's can be a real pain to print on older printers and a pain to look at with computers little RAM. HTML can be much less intensive.

just a thought.

No I don't have Clip or LM yet. I am still debating what to do in that route. I do have QB Pro 2002.

I don't care if they use pay pal, print it out and mail it or what ever, I just want to make it more convenient and speed up the snail mail.

I e-mail some of my billings to out of state clients. When I finish filling out the bill on the computer for the month I just hit print and select .PDF option and save under client name and month. I then attach it to e-mail and send it. It is faster than it sounds and saves paper, stamps, envelope and time.

In Quickbooks, I set the printer to "fax" and push print. It's pretty simple. Email is a problem. But most of my clients have faxes built into their computers or stand alone faxes, so it works.

Why not just leave the bill on the door? No stamp required.
