I'm sure it would have been discussed before but cant find anything does anyone have a link to a thread on customers paying online. Or would appreciate any advice on it. I'm going to start introducing it to customers in the new year but don't know much about what my options are other than I have a PayPal account.

 

Cheers

I know the custys I am putting the details on so don't worry...I believe Jeremy Clarkson once gave out his details saying it was perfectly safe to find out it wasn't as safe as what he thought....they could be used to give a donation etc but....I rarely keep the money in the account long enough:D

 

I also put reference address but I think that's common sense....

Paypal is well known and trusted, but the charges are relatively high - GoCardless is brilliant as it works on a variable direct debit system,.. after the custie gives you the initial authorisation via your website/ signup link then you are in control,.. after you clean you click a button on the system and its taken from their account via DD - no more waiting to get paid!

 

The fees are a lot lower than Paypal too. ;)

yep for a while now I have just put my account sort code on the back of my slip and its great to see the money come in...hopefully..soon I will get some proper printed cards..:D

Yep it's my goal for 2015 to totally eliminate collecting, already got few using Bac's ..that's my preferred, I do take PayPal but pass the charge on to the custy...

With BACS you still need to wait for the customer to make payment - with Gocardless YOU are in control, you just submit the DD after you clean & since its been pre-authorised the custies doesn't have to do anything. ;)

I could see this going wrong as at times customers think you haven't been even though you have and carded it after , think most of my customers would like to be in control of when they pay especially in the council estate ares
