    Most of my customers pay online. I send a reminder after seven days.

    Not collected since 2001....
    A few old dears leave the money on the cill, others send cheques and the rest pay online or by pingit.

    It does mean it can be months between getting the money but as long as they pay I can live with that.
    Good luck with your new venture - I've no doubt you'll find its a great job

    Nope, me too. Friday night is the second best night of the week and I'm buggered if I'm going to spend it door knocking.
    Online, cheques or cash. Any customer that insist I come back for payment, its adios from me

    Never collect, clean and leave a card. Cheques arive in the post every day. Most pay by bacs. Few that don't I just leave it till next clean. waste of my time and fuel to go back over the round collecting.

    fri / sat.
    ive found that inner town folk have no idea about online banking, near all my outer town customers are more on the ball, bacs, some have requested bank cheque books from bank so they can now pay using a cheque.
    some folk never knew what a cheque book was.
    i dont mind collecting, a few fit babes on my rounds. still waiting for that bath robe or towel to drop when they are trying to pay me.:whistle::whistle::666:[delusional][delusional]:wow:
