    Well for people like this, you need to offer other ways.. A girl i recently got, she told me my last window cleaner stopped me as I was a bad payer and never in.. At first I thought sure I'll give you a go... Surely enough I could never get her in!! But I called one Sunday and spoke to her, and now she sends a cheque within a few days of cleaning

    I made my own payment slips that i copied from another window cleaner. its got my website on for payments and says you can send me a cheque to my house. since i have done that last month i have had more people pay. buy its christmas and everyone seems to be buying presents and not paying the windy. i have a few good payers who actually owe me and havent paid yet.

    its raining all day today so I was going to take my boy and go collecting...

    I had one yesterday, who finally paid me after about 1 and a 1/2 years. :eek: I use online payments and cheques for customers who I cant get in, and I still get ones I need to remove, because they don't pay. I would take about 5 minutes, to pay online, no one is that busy they don't have 5 minutes. Some people just don't care, and don't have any intention of taking 5 minutes to pay there window cleaner.

    I had one, who was always a bit of a jerk about it, saying he work away, and does get home until 8. This was when we used bookings, rather than working an area at a time, so he knew when we were coming. I said, we always get your daughter home, (who was prob about 18/19 so responsible enough,) why don't you just leave money out for her to pay us. Or if that's a problem, stick it in a envelope, and post it through your neighbours door, I do both there windows, and can speak to them about it, I am sure it would be a problem. Still no joy, so off the list he came.

    I moved the long distance or people that were least likly to be in to BACS. To be honest its not made much difference.

    I still need to hassale them to pay. Next thing Im going to try is get them on standing order. Less hassle
