    Some set up direct Debits with their customers, paypal or go cardless.

    I'd go with a few options....bank transfers as gav said...a text the night before saying your due and asking them too leave the money or cheque in a safe place, make sure you say you carry change with you so you can leave it if they don't have the correct amount..and just registered too have a payg chip and pin reader from i-zettle, they charge you just under 3% but very handy for the " sorry not been to the bank yet " customer

    Yes there are 2 options available, the first being a plug into your phone type reader and the second connecting via Bluetooth...definitely start texting though it cut my collecting down from going out 3 times a week to just once a week

    We only accept go card less and paypal now. Only OAP customers that are home on the day usually get to pay cash.

    In less than six months we have gone from collecting 4 evenings a week to just 1 evening per month.
