Ways to improve your collection rate

  • Get paid upfront

    Accept eCheck, debit, or credit card payments through your website, click-to-pay links, QR codes, or even by phone, allowing clients to pay for an engagement at their convenience.

    Collect more with payment plans

    Collect more of your outstanding balances or avoid them all together by breaking large bills into manageable amounts and setting a schedule that fits your clients needs.

    Faster payments synced with your ledgers

    Send a bill and get paid all in one go. Each transaction is automatically recorded and synced to your accounting platform, saving you time and reducing the risk of error.

    Automate bill reminders so you don’t have to

    Avoid chasing payments by automatically sending reminder emails containing pay-now buttons to clients, notifying them of any bills or outstanding balances.

    Collect even quicker with QR codes

    Give clients the ability to scan a digital or physical QR code on your website, or at the office to collect in seconds more securely by mobile devices.
