This week, in the Handlr Feature Highlight series, we’ll dive into Instant Payments and how this simple feature can make life much easier for you, your staff and your customers. To learn more about how you can automate your customers payments, read on below!
When you start a business, getting paid seems like the easy part, right? Provide the service or sell the product and cha-ching! Money in your pocket. Unfortunately, the real world doesn’t quite work that way. You soon realize that chasing down checks from customers, dealing with refunds and wasting a lot of time at the bank each week is a harsh reality of service businesses. How often do you have to call a customer and ask them for payment? How many hours a week do you spend chasing down checks? How many times has a payment “slipped through the cracks” costing your business money? What if there was a better way?
The Handlr automated payments system means you’ll get paid on-time, every time – instantly. As soon as you or a team member check out of the service, your customer will receive a receipt, check-out notification and their card will be charged instantly – no more chasing checks. Need to refund a customer? Maybe you just want to check out all of their past payments? Handlr makes it simply and quick to do so. Customer profiles on the Handlr dashboard contain all payment history and refunds can be applied with just two clicks. Customers add their credit cards to their own Handlr profile using the customer app, or you can add a card for them via the dashboard. Handlr even gives you the option to pre-charge customers up front for services, allowing customers to book package deals or week long appointments. Customers love that they no longer have to write checks for each service, and they don’t even have to be present to pay you! In fact, once they book the service, their part is done – they can rest assured that you’ll be paid on time. Credit card charges are processed on Sunday each week via batch processing, saving you big bucks on transaction fees. With Handlr, your companies invoicing becomes an automated, efficient system that saves you and your customers both time and money.
