    Hey guys.

    What payment method besides cash and cheque is best.

    I recall someone using a system that worked in a way which, once you cleaned the place you used an app to request payment etc anyone remember what this is or use it?

    Thanks alot.

    I don't know what you got in uk , but we have such an app called "mobile pay" really great cause anyone can pay cash on spot. I've put a note on my invoices that offers it , and I'm getting my money faster now for sure . People think it's really fast and easy . :thumbsup:

    Bank transfer (UK) more and more are paying like this. Fast and easy, money straight into your account.

    Give them your sort code, account number and name.

    Push forward for no collecting.

    Thanks chaps.

    Bank transfer is what I had in mind.

    But I do recall someone using a service which you kept all clients details on and once you finished you just press collect basically.

    Gocardless is what you mean

    Just like direct debit but online
    Do the job
    Click their address
    Money comes out their account 6 days later
    You get it after 7 days in your account
    Not the fastest but hassle free
    Plus only charged 1% rather than paypal which is 3.4% plus 20p for each transaction
    So 10p for a tenner which isn't bad when you don't need to collect

    I have that too on my invoice, i get money faster too and its so easy to ask for money on spot on a one off clean as no one have cash on them these days. Do you also have swipp? I dont but customers have asked for this guess its the same ask mobilepay.
