Do you have trouble with actually getting paid by your clients?

If so, you’re not alone. Many freelancers have trouble getting their clients to pay—it’s actually way more common than you might think.

While paying late is better than not paying at all, I’m sure you’d probably prefer that your clients simply pay on time.

How do you get them to pay on time? How are you supposed to encourage them to do so?

One fantastic way is to simply make it as easy as possible for them to pay.

“4. Accept all forms of payment and encourage credit cards.

  • Accepting cards encourages a client to pay promptly – and once they do, you keep the money even if the client fails to pay their credit card bill.
  • PayPal and Square both offer easy credit card acceptance solutions for small business.
  • If you use QuickBooks, Intuit offers a payment service that works directly from your accounting software.”
