What is the Clio Payments Collection Calculator?

The Clio Payments Collection Calculator calculates the additional revenue firms collect when they accept credit card payments from clients online–compared to accepting other payment methods (such as check and cash).

How are the results calculated?

We use a few key data points to calculate the results. Based on our data, law firms using Clio Payments:

  • collect an average of 7.3% more of their total billings;
  • have an 80.1% probability of being paid in 90 days (a higher probability than those who do not have Clio Payments enabled).

Can I see an applied example?

Law firm X is Clio Payments enabled and has 10 bills with a total value of $10,000. Based on our data, Law Firm X, could expect to collect $8,160 within a 90 day period, and incur $159 in transaction fees. Law firm X would collect $8,001 in total.

Law firm Y is not Clio Payments enabled, and has 10 bills with a total value of $10,000. Based on our data, Law Firm Y, could expect to collect $7,430 within a 90 day period, and incur no transaction fees. Law firm Y would collect $7,430 in total.

Despite paying credit card and transaction fees, firms that use Clio Payments still collect more revenue overall.
