Setting up recurring billing streamlines the payment process with repeat customers.
Recurring charges are an easy way to simplify your business. Looking for a way to make your life and your customers’ lives easier? What if you could charge your house-cleaning clients every week without needing to ask for their billing information every time? Allset provides a way to streamline recurring payments to make the billing process extra smooth.
What Is Recurring Billing?
Businesses in service industries that find themselves doing work for the same clients will find recurring billing a useful tool. It enables the business to charge the same client repeatedly without needing to take down credit card information with every job.
Avoid the Hassle of Taking Manual Payments
If your business is in the outdoor care or cleaning industries, you probably visit some of the same clients regularly to clean their houses or mow their lawns. Without recurring billing helping you out, these interactions might include the following:
The need to ask for payment information repeatedly.
Wasted time as the client searches for their wallet.
Typos in the credit card number as you input it into your billing software.
Recurring charges make the billing process so much easier by eliminating all of these issues.
What Are the Benefits of Recurring Billing?
Recurring billing is perfect for the service industry! It’s a wonderful tool that can help your business do the following:
Save Time: When you use recurring charges, you can show up for a job, complete the work, and leave. All you need to do to get paid is charge the customer’s credit card, which you’ll have saved in your billing software. You can accept payments from your house — it’s super easy!
Increase Payment Security: As more and more digital payment options emerge, many business owners and customers worry about account security. With a customer’s card saved on file, your banking info and your customer’s credit card are safer than they would be if you used multiple manual charges.
Make Billing Convenient: “Instead of having to provide billing information for a routine charge repeatedly, the customer can authorize the merchant to keep payment details on file. Then, the merchant can charge the designated account each…time that the agreed-upon goods or services are delivered” from an article titled Recurring Billing: Definition, Types, and Examples.
Reduce Paper Waste: With recurring billing, you do not need to print an invoice or receipt! You can take your payment straight from your customer’s account without creating more paper waste. Do yourself and the planet a favor when you use recurring charges!
