    How many of you use an auto pay method. I know of PayPal and Epal. What are the costs for these if only a handful of customers are using this. Can it be set up for bi-monthly payments? Are there other services out there you use? I know that I personally use some type of auto pay on my truck, house, all insurance, equipment lease, etc. I love the convenience and I think some of my customers would like to pay for their lawn applications this way. I would like to find a way to draw from their account and put it directly into my account. Can anyone help me with these questions? I tried a search but I could not get all my questions answered specifically. Thanks.

    No need for that. I have several customers that pay me using their own bill pay service through their computer. All these services will let you setup recurring payments etc. I use one also for all my personal bills, it is very easy. I would think you might be opening up a big can of worms trying to setup auto drafts.

    Coonman,
    Do you use a local service or is it online? If it is online, what is the name of the service? Thanks.

  6. I have customers that keep a credit card # on file with me. End of month - send statement, charge card, money is in the bank that day.
    Works great.

    PayPal only costs when you use. No set up fee.
