How many ways to pay does your business allow customers to pay? 2? 3? Let me suggest something to you, direct debit. in this article I intend to discuss firstly the virtues of direct debit but also the correct way of implementing the system across your infrastructure and staff. Read on to find out more.
Depending on the business you run DD may or may not be a good payment solution. After all a man owning an ice cream van isn’t likely to need a system of payment in which the customer agrees to send a certain amount to each month, it just wouldn’t make sense. It’s going to be most useful if you have an information or service based company such as SEO. Let’s imagine that’s the case, your customer could set up a direct debit for 6 months of payments in which you build a certain amount of links and optimise the site along the way.
This removes all the pain in payment systems and as long as your staff have received proper training means that you can put your mind to more important things than making sure payments turn on up time. Speaking of training, that’s exactly what you and your staff are going to need if you plan on providing a quality service (I imagine that you do), not only that but you’re going to have to ensure that they receive regular training to keep standards from slipping within your company.
So there we are, if you’re interested in expanding your payment options and you think direct debit could be for you, then go ahead and try it out.
