    Was curious on whether most of you are asking for payment within 15 days or 30 days, or due upon receipt. Mine is net 30 but I'm thinking of going to net 15 from send date.

    I do net 10 days.They usually send them within 15:confused: I just started doing it that way because most of my suppliers bill me net 10 days hope this helps you.

    Due upon completion of the work. I hand them an invoice the minute the job is finished.

    But I don't do maintenance, only installs.

    We just changed last week from Net 30 to Net 15...too many people wait until the very last minute. I need $$$ coming in more during the month too.

    We''ll see what happens:rolleyes:

    I agree Rod...even if I get my invoices out by the 5th or so (which I never do) I'm waiting on money from work that was done 6 weeks ago until I receive payment even when I change to new 15. Defintely going to 15 days

    I even toyed with the idea of changing it to "Upon Receipt"... I knew that would never happen:angry:

    I agree: it's all about cash-flow.
    When you changed - did you send them a letter explaining or pointing out the invoice changes?

    If so, how did you explain it to the ol' die-hards?

    I do Net 10 and usually have most of my payments by 15 days. I have a couple who consistently wait until 25 to 30 days but I don't make an issue of it. It has to be over 30 days to get my attention.
