Now is the time to set up payments before your customers return

5 min read

With life just starting to get back to normal, businesses all over Australia are eagerly anticipating the restrictions being lifted that will see the return to business as usual.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t be working to improve your business during this time. Look at this downtime as an opportunity to look at your business efficiency and what you can do to improve it. Reviewing your payment processes now could be beneficial if you find yourself spending too much time processing payments manually, or if you are currently only accepting one form of payment from your customers.

Set and forget with automated Direct Debit payments

Once things are back up and running in Australia, there will be a lot of tasks to get your business back to full efficiency. Something that many businesses find is that the time they take each week to process their customers’ payments manually is taking them away from other important tasks.

The time and effort you expend on managing payments could be better spent on growing your business and building back up those vital customer relationships with your existing customers. By automating your payment offerings you’ll be able to depend on regular and scheduled payments from your customers each time.

Offering direct debit is beneficial for your customers as well. Rather than having to take time out of their day to pay you, you are providing them with an automated method that does everything for them after the initial set-up. This eliminates any incidents of forgotten invoices and having to chase payments up on your end (never a fun conversation).

The first step in getting your clients paying via direct debit is chatting with a payments provider in recurring direct debit payments, like Ezidebit. We can provide you with the systems and paperwork needed to set up an automated payment schedule with your customers before business returns to normal.

Offer your customers peace of mind with wireless EFTPOS

Let your customers pay anytime and anywhere with Real Time Payments

eCommerce has seen an unprecedented boom in the wake of COVID-19 with Australians spending more time at home, and online than usual.

Setting up the ability to take payments over the phone, in person or online with real time payments is a way for you to take payments seamlessly and safely while things are still getting back to normal.

Real time payments are perfect for missed payments, and on-the-spot purchases or payments that you need to take over the phone. Adding real time payments to your payment offering gives both you and your customers the flexibility to pay in a number of ways during these uncertain times.

Take the opportunity to set up your payment processes with Ezidebit during this time so that when business returns to normal (hopefully soon) you can rest easy knowing your payments are taken care of.
