i think it would give late payers even more reason to pay later... if you have a small client base that pays well i would probably say it might be worth it..

Hi Frontier-Lawn,

Did you know you can print your invoices to pdf format and then email them as an attached file?

Maybe this will help.

I do it, send them straight out of QB to those who have internet access.
Fastest I have ever had for response time, usually 2 to 3 days I have the checks coming in. of those billed that way, I have not had a single slow payer.
My snail mail accounts take a month to get the checks back to me.
I wish I could bill them all on e-mail!! :D :D :D :D
Oh ya, When e-mail billing, Commercial accounts are great, get the e-mail address to the acct payable and if possible a contact persons name so it goes straight to the one who approves the payment. I did that with a comm. that was the slowest payer i ever dealt with. Now I'm payed within a week.

I proposed it 2 years ago. Put a nice note in their monthly invioces.

Not one response. I didn't offer a discount or anything though.

I check email 2-3 times a day (sometimes more). Maybe my customers aren't as web savvy?

Thing is, my Software makes it real easy to do. One button and all email invoices are sent. I set up a few dummy accounts to test it out. Real slick if you ask me.

I just started doing it a couple of months ago. And about half of my customers gave me their email address. I tell them to check their email around the first of each month. Works great, Guess which customers didn't give me their email? The freakin late payers!
