Understanding the value of a payment reminder

The purpose of payment reminders is to persuade clients to pay on time to prevent late fees, interest charges, or service suspension. Automated payment reminders are therefore of value to both you as a business and to the client. You receive prompt and reliable payment and the client avoids extra fees.

What is a payment reminder?

A payment reminder is a notification delivered to customers to remind them of padu-due or unpaid bills. Reminders can be sent via email, text, phone calls, or even physical letters. 

What should payment reminders include?

In most cases, they include information on the amount due, the due date, and any associated fines or feeds. In addition, you can include a personal note and the original invoice as an attachment.

With Conta, you can send payment reminders both manually and automatically.

Payment reminders can be an effective tool in helping you get paid. By automatically sending timely reminders to your customers, Conta can help you prompt them to make a payment and reduce the likelihood of overdue and missed payments. 

An automated payment reminder benefits all 

Automated reminders can also help you get paid by making it easier for your customers to pay. For instance, you can include step-by-step instructions on how to make a payment or have a payment link.

Friendly payment reminders are key 

Finally, reminding consumers to make payments might also help you build a good rapport with them.
