    Hi,
    I do bacs and Paypal, & cash, collecting. i dont mind its local.
    people still forget to pay, and if i dont check up some get away with not paying, i have some email addresses but not all. i should get all numbers and email addresses to remind them. some forget to send there address as there id. to know who paid. so i dont know, only 2 people but i cant find out who . always out.
    anyway
    how did your customers react to you asking to pay via Go cardless .
    can someone let me know the basics of getting set-up, and advantages of getting paid this way rather than my 3 payment types,
    cash,
    paypal,
    Bacs.

    I'll talk to ya! Any new custys who want bank payments MUST go on Go Cardless had big problems chasing up the same Amnesia patients, I turn up with Quote books and a printed sheet explaining payment methods and hand it to the custy along with the quote and explain how Go Cardless works. When I first went Go Cardless I sent a mass text to all custys offering the service I got a few negative texts back saying stuff like "I'm not sharing my bank details" I don't get to see their bank details but the 7 I have using it are happy, certainly not doing bank transfers anymore pain in the @rse

    I found it difficult getting my customers on GoCardless because they didn't want to share bank details or sign up to a monthly DD.. I use PayPal and send a text reminder with a PayPal.me link all they do is click the link and pay the value I request. I've got it linked up to my SmartRound account which I use to keep record of jobs etc it's a doddle for checking overdue customers. I've actually just put some screenshots in this post
