How Due is Changing Invoicing
Invoicing, although very necessary for the majority of businesses in order to get paid, is one of a business owner’s least favorite activities. Why? It’s time-consuming and takes them away from other tasks. You’d rather be focusing on ways to make money or even marketing your business to increase revenue. Changing invoicing seemed impossible.
Until now, online invoicing was a labor-intensive task. It involved a lot of manual activity as well as a high cost in the form of paper, ink, envelopes, and postage. Too much time was often spent on trying to figure out how much time to bill. Add other people like freelancers on the team who also contributed their time and it becomes an even more complicated process.
You might also have to gather all types of expenses to tack onto the invoice. Now, multiply that by however many clients to bill on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis. After all of that, you would have to put the invoice in the mail. Then, you would wait for the recipient to open it and pay it.
The process used to take at least a week and sometimes even longer. This was especially true each client had not immediately decided to pay it. In fact, some freelancers have lamented about waiting over 30 days for payment.
Thanks to Due, changing invoicing is possible. You can make that invoicing process a thing of the past. Now, you can move onto a solution that reduces the time and costs. Plus, it raises your cash flow.
