As a business owner, you know paying customers drive your business. However, nothing causes things to come to a screeching halt faster than having to chase delinquent payments or even non-payments.
Expired credit cards and late payments from customers are a huge headache. You have to chase customers down, ask awkward questions, and maybe cancel their memberships.
Set Up Online Bill Payment
One of the most common reasons payments are late is simply because everyone forgets: customers and staff are both busy and things unintentionally fall between the cracks.
With Studio Director, your students can pay for their classes online with a credit card, debit card, or ACH transfer.
When a student registers for a new class, they enter their information online, and can instantly pay you for that class. There are some obvious benefits to accepting credit card payments, but most importantly, you don’t have to remind people when a balance is due, because everything is in the online portal. Customers can even pay after-hours because the online portal never closes.
Process Payments Automatically
In addition to letting students pay online, you can also program recurring payments that automatically charges their accounts.
It’s as easy as entering the amount owed and running the monthly or quarterly payment for your business on the due date. Without any additional effort, your students will be current on their accounts. This means less stress for you and your students.
Handle Expired Credit Cards
In the event that a client tries to pay a bill with an expired credit card, or there is an issue with a recurring payment, they will be notified immediately via email.
You don’t need to worry about asking for a new credit card to add to their file, let alone keep track of expiration dates. All of that is handled by our software.
