Most of us are too busy to make sure every invoice gets paid on time. This leads to cash flow problems when our clients pay late.
The Getting-Paid system makes sure your invoices don't get forgotten. It lets you automatically send a series of gentle email reminders to your clients when an invoice becomes overdue.
It's really simple but works staggeringly well.
Expect better cash flow without uncomfortable phone calls to chase money or more administration work.
Automating these reminders saves you time and money.
Who uses Getting-Paid?
We've got users from around the world. They represent a wide range of industries and professions. Some issue many small invoices each month and others just a few large ones. The system works well in either case.
I had a phone call this morning from a customer telling me that he's paid 12 invoices so that he doesn't get that darned email once a week (Should have paid on time!)
The one invoice that came in already paid for this service!
The obvious benefit has been in releasing a staff member to concentrate on supporting sales efforts rather than spending hours and hours doing a job they really don't enjoy doing.
I believe it will make a huge impact on our business.
So, does it work? Yes! Well done on a great concept and fantastic product. Thumbs up.
Another benefit is that your reminders are sent out more regularly than we would send paper copies. Thanks for the system!
Being automated with Kashflow my clients are automatically chased and I just receive the cheque a lot earlier than anticipated, which has helped improve our cash flow significantly.
We will be using Getting Paid as our standard method of payment chasing for years to come.
I think the layout of the reminders and their frequency improve the response rate and payments. I think that the site is great at getting results.
Why automatic credit control works so well.
The squeaky wheel gets the oil.
The invoices that get chased get paid. It shows that you're serious about business. It's the same method used by your mortgage lender or credit card company and most of the other services we use. People are almost programmed to pay when their invoice is part of a system.
It improves communication.
Invoices get lost or forgotten. We often get an email after a reminder message to one of our clients (yip - we use this every day) asking for a copy of the invoice - which then gets paid. Reminding promptly means that problems get sorted promptly before unpaid invoices cause cash flow problems.
How it works.
1. Customize the reminder templates
The system comes pre-loaded with 6 thoroughly tested email reminder messages that get invoices paid without offending your clients. You can use them as they are or change them to suit your business.
2. Add invoices and customers
Starting is quick and easy. You can type the the details in, import from your accounting package or address book, email your invoices to us or synchronize directly with one of the supported accounting packages. We know small businesses owners hate admin so we've kept it as easy as possible.
3. Email reminders are sent automatically
That's it. The first reminder will be sent automatically if the invoice becomes overdue and the system will keep working tirelessly in the background until you tell it to stop.
4. Get Paid
Life is good. Mark the invoice paid when the money arrives and the system won't send any more reminders.

Our users generate invoices with Quickbooks, Sage, Pastel, some spreadsheets and even on the back of an envelope.
You can automate your credit control, save a significant amount of time and improve your cash flow no matter how you generate your invoices. You can import your client list and invoices from CSV files or type them in by hand.
Don't outsource credit control. Try this first.
Most of our users find that their customer respond well and their invoices are paid very quickly. The record so far is 30 minutes from the start of the trial to the first invoice being paid.
- Low Monthly Fee - no matter how many invoices you have. Compare this with outsourcing where the costs are usually charged per invoice or per action (call or letter). This adds up quickly. Getting paid on time should not eat into your profit.
- Stay close to your clients. With the Getting-Paid system you know exactly what's being said to your clients. Credit control services often use minimum wage call centers in order to be profitable. Face it - nobody else is ever going to love your customers the way you do.
- Getting-Paid only takes a few minutes work per invoice compared with a pile of extra admin, forms and red tape needed when outsourcing or factoring.
- You're in control. Start or stop reminders anytime. Adjust the system to suit your business exactly.
