It pays to mind your manners—literally. A simple “please” and “thank you” can increase the likelihood of your invoice being paid by more than 5 per cent.
Use Plain Language
Don’t complicate your invoice with confusing payment terms. For example, writing 30 days versus Net 30 is much more clear and easy to understand.
Include an Interest Charge
When clients see an interest rate on an invoice, it gives them a big incentive to pay on time. It’s an easy way to turn late-payers into early birds.
