    Everyday i work i collect the same day at 8pm.... and all my work is within 10 miles from me :)

    But to save me from going every day.... I am planning on doing a mass collect once a week every sunday at 8pm or 6pm when everyone is home ? i am not going to put on my invoice:

    making payment:

    bank transfer: ( mydetails )

    cheque: post to ... ( my details )

    Then underneath that am going to put we collect money every sundays @ 8pm.

    so instead of driving back to that 10 mile distance again just to collect... i will just drive all over on sunday... one day a week :) everybody is at home then... and this should work much better for me :) saving more time and fuel

    Plus a few csutomers now pay me through bank transfer... but the majority i collect. its part of the game collecting has to be done :p

    good idea lads ?

    Yeah I wouldn't be too happy with someone knocking my door at 8pm any day of the week!

    I don't understand why people can't BACS it to you.

    Ive been suggesting this more and more to my current customers. The problem is they always forget to do it.
