Being new to the business, this is the first time I have had this question come up presenting an annual contract to a potential commercial account. Please give me your thoughts. After I talked to the office manager on the contract, I told her what the monthly payment would be and she ask if they could pay for the services at 6 months intervals, two pay checks for a years work. She said it was an accounts payable issue??? It was like she did not want to worry about taking time to write another check each month. I replied that I had never had that reqest before and she basically is trying to get my price down for " paying up front " that is her words. Of course I am not budging on my price because it is fair and decent as I am providing service to the building next door. This is probably a simple thing for you all to figure out, but like I said it was a first for me. Would a quarterly payment be better if she is set on not paying every month? It is a really nice property, so I would like to get the bid. Thanks up front for the advise.
