Never Turn Away a Client Ready to Pay
Whether you are a sole practitioner or a large firm, you never want to turn away a client ready to pay for your services. Adding credit and debit card acceptance to your client payment options allows your clients to pay promptly and retain your services immediately.
From accountants and attorneys to graphic designers and insurance agents, professional services providers are discovering the value of credit and debit card acceptance. In the process, they are experiencing many benefits:
Improved cash flow - Card acceptance may eliminate the net-30 (or longer) wait for payment. In fact, professional services providers can enjoy next-day funding on card transactions deposited directly into a PNC business checking account.
Greater efficiency - Staff spends less time generating invoices and following up on collection and billing issues.
Better client service - Clients enjoy the flexibility of paying for services using their choice of payment option.
Adding credit and debit card acceptance to your client payment options allows your clients to pay promptly and retain your services immediately.
