Money is what keeps a business alive and successfully operating. For the products or services you offer, money is provided in exchange for your work and expertise. Now, what would happen to your business if you were not paid by the consumers for your services?
Your business would close.
In a less extreme case, you most likely spend countless hours trying to follow up with these consumers, making sure that they do not forget to pay you. This process takes unnecessary time just to keep your business afloat, despite you already working with a good amount of clients. So, after all of the business you already conducted, you are struggling to find a way that allows your business to not have to constantly hound consumers to pay you.
But what is a simple solution that gives your business the opportunity to never have to follow up once your service is completed ever again?
Contactless payments are the fastest, most organized process that allows your business to gain back the time and money lost usually spent trying to follow up with your clients. Instead of having to set aside time specifically to get your consumers to pay, you can now spend this valuable time to continue doing more business and ultimately make more money. Not only are you keeping your business afloat, but now you are successfully thriving with more revenue in your business, just by digitizing the way you accept money.
Usually, as a business in the Home Service industry, you would send an invoice after the job is completed with a summary of the work and the payment. But, this invoice can easily be misplaced, forgotten about, or never paid by the consumer. Your business may have to send multiple invoices for the same job, or continue contacting the client to remind them to pay. With digital payments, your business now has the ability to process all payments online through a link or QR code. Since you are already contacting your clients via message or email, you can easily send a link for them to pay right on their device. Contactless payments also allows you to put a QR code on your service sheet, so all consumers have to do is scan the code and pay right there in front of you before you leave the job. Then, once you leave, you never have to worry about that client’s payment ever again, and can move onto other business priorities.
Furthermore, your business also has the opportunity via contactless payments to require clients to pay a deposit ahead of completing the service. This process both keeps your payments organized and also results in less cancellations because consumers do not want to lose the deposit that they paid up front with your business. Digitizing how you accept money allows your business to focus on the quality service that you provide your consumers and approach them more prepared on the day the job is completed.
As a competitively successful business, you should be prioritizing and concentrating on delivering quality work, finishing on time, and satisfying the customer. In return, you should expect payment for your services in full and without delay or having to follow up with your clients. Your time is too valuable to be worrying about how and when you get paid for your service. Digital payments make the payment process more simple for the consumer, which consequently makes your business more efficient, prepared, and well organized.
How and that you get paid is an extremely important component to your business. The opportunity of operating with a structured payment system is here, and you must take advantage of it before it is too late.
