Prior to FastPay our customers paid us when they remembered or wanted to. We spent an inordinate amount of time sending reminders, and watching our bank account. Some would pay immediately but it soon became clear that there were some late payers and some never payers, some paid by internet, some by cheque in the post. It was impossible to plan or budget as we really never knew what monies were available to us. We knew we needed direct debit and we approached our bank but we were too new and too small. And yet we needed the stability. We found FastPay through Google and we have never looked back.
Our existing clients were happy to change to direct debit, some of them asked why we hadn’t done it before! All our new customers are signed up to direct debit automatically.
I can’t believe how much it transformed my working day. I rarely need to chase payments now. I know what date monies will enter our account, and I can budget effectively. I can spend my time and energies more effectively too, keeping customers and staff happy.
I can’t imagine how we would manage any other way, I strongly recommend FastPay, you know when you will get paid and how much, it just takes away all the stress.
