    My one and only debtor has finally paid up. So what to do with him now. I'm thinking dump him and move on or should I contact him and request payment in advance each month, only cleaning when payment is in bank. Opinions please but before you decide a bit of background on the customer. Started cleaning windows last April he's always paid on line within a fortnight, then Jan this year no payment recieved same in Feb. Haven't cleaned them since Feb and after numerous requests finally he paid up yesterday. What to do ?

    These people are the reason I've started using go cardless and for them it's going to go card less or nothing. I think if you ask for payment first then they Weill always say leave it but if you use go careless and debit them after it may work.
