    I'm sure this has been asked before, so sorry if it has. I was wanting to know if I should bill monthly or bi-weekly? :usflag:

    i just bill monthly but maybe try to bill half of your clients in the middle of the month and the other half at the end of the month to keep some cash flow .

    Once a month. It gets tedious to do it several times a month. Big companies do the same thing.

    I do what every they want some older people will pay you every time you complete the job. but i have found out that some like to pay it all at once, some like to pay when you get done, some like to pay every 2 weeks. and some like to pay at the end of the month. I always ask and see whats better for them

    Monthly. Bi-weekly would be to much work for me in the office. Not to mention you'd be doubling the cost of printing invoices out for the year. Isn't much but it does add up.

    Bill monthly, more than that and it becomes a pain.

    So it sounds like the majority is bill monthly. Thanks for your help

    I bill monthly. When I first started out I did bill biweekly to have the cash flow. I started in Sept and went to once a month starting Jan. It did help me out a lot to get going though.

    I bill weekly works out well, this way the customers always know when they got serviced and can't argue, "hey you never came 4 mondays ago" or whatever.
