Do you guys charge late fees?

Just wondering if any of you charge late fees. If so how long after the due date do you tack them on and how much do you charge. I have two accounts that seem to not think its a rush to pay me when the service is completed.

it has to be written into a contract for it to be enforceable, you cant just apply a fee because you want

have a contract state that payments must be received in 15 days (or whatever you prefer) or a finance fee will be applied

Yeah, I was afraid of that. Would it work if I sent out a notice beforehand. Something like: "starting this date, we will charge a late fee of x on payments not made within y days. Continuing to use our service indicates your agreement to this policy"?
