    Any of you get paid up front for work? Do you have your accounts pay in advance or in the rears?

    If you are getting paid up front, are those customers on contracts? Thanks

    "full service clients", which are these clients who are scheduled for weekly mowing, spring and fall cleanups, and fert program, have all the fees totalled and divided by 10. our season here starts around april. since the first of the 10 payments is due march 1st, then yes, it is "in advance". mowing only accounts are billed mid month on a per cut basis. fert programs which are sold not as part of full service are payed in full, in advance. hope this helps
