Rebecca Wells ‏@rabshaka21
@SherrellTMartin Oooooh… great part of the country #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
A1. Most clients do once a month. RT @IconisGroup Q1: How often do you send invoices? #qbochat

Sherrell T. Martin ‏@SherrellTMartin
LOL DC, MD , VA “@rabshaka21: @SherrellTMartin DMV = Department of Motor Vechicles? #qbochat”

Brent Blackburn ‏@KeepingBooksCC
A1 Almost all clients get one once a month, because I to value monthly pricing #qbochat

taxgrl ‏@taxgrl
A1: when charges get high enough to justify bothering to email it #qbochat

Rebecca Wells ‏@rabshaka21
A1 who has time to send it out more than once a month? #qbochat

JM Freuler ‏@JMFreuler
Hey guys! this is @jmfreuler from @fundinggates. We provide an online application helping businesses better manage their A/R #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
Does anyone have a client that sends invoices constantly? #qbochat

Brent Blackburn ‏@KeepingBooksCC
A1 And they are set to autobill their credit card 5 days later #qbochat

Iconis Group ‏@IconisGroup
@JMFreuler Welcome! We are so glad you could make it! #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
@KeepingBooksCC I’m having to get away from value pricing because apparently I was way undervaluing my services. :/ #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis

Does anyone know of a company that invoices less than once a month? (That could be scary) #qbochat

Funding Gates ‏@fundinggates
@CathyIconis yes unfortunately. I’ve had customers who did so bc they couldn’t keep up with who owed them money #qbochat

Sherrell T. Martin ‏@SherrellTMartin
Love that autobill “@KeepingBooksCC: A1 And they are set to autobill their credit card 5 days later #qbochat”

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
Anyone using #Paypal? Or something else for online payments? #qbochat

Iconis Group ‏@IconisGroup
You can also send invoices from @QBOnline’s new iPad App #qbochat

Sherrell T. Martin ‏@SherrellTMartin
Will definitely check“@IconisGroup: InvoiceASAP lets you create and send invoices from your mobile device. http://ow.ly/nKT9m #qbochat”

Rebecca Wells ‏@rabshaka21
I’m always interested in hearing about other’s routines set around invoicing. #qbochat

Funding Gates ‏@fundinggates
@CathyIconis I love the intuit payment network #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
@fundinggates Why do you recommend 2 weeks? #qbochat

Sherrell T. Martin ‏@SherrellTMartin

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
@fundinggates I still have issues with IPN, like limits on how much you can collect in the month, etc. #qbochat

Rebecca Wells ‏@rabshaka21
The recording side is just. so. smooth!! RT @fundinggates @CathyIconis I love the intuit payment network #qbochat

Iconis Group ‏@IconisGroup
Q2: Do you accept online payments? If so, what system do you use? #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
We’ve had a few clients have their client’s payments be rejected because they hit the monthly cap. #qbochat

Sherrell T. Martin ‏@SherrellTMartin
I use it on some invoices and as an available option “@CathyIconis: Anyone using #Paypal? Or something else for online payments? #qbochat”

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
We get all of our payments through @Billcom because they are all setup on it for their payables. #qbochat

Funding Gates ‏@fundinggates
@CathyIconis majority of time people aren’t paying slow bc they are stiffing you.they just forget. More invoices = more reminders. #qbochat

TSheets.com ‏@tsheets
A2 I think nowadays you’re shooting yourself in the foot if you don’t have any form of online payment method #qbochat

Rebecca Wells ‏@rabshaka21
It makes me feel like an accounting jedi RT @fundinggates @CathyIconis I love the intuit payment network #qbochat

Iconis Group ‏@IconisGroup
RT @tsheets A2 I think nowadays you’re shooting yourself in the foot if you don’t have any form of online payment method #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
RT @fundinggates @CathyIconis majority of time people aren’t paying slow bc they are stiffing you.they just forget. #qbochat

Funding Gates ‏@fundinggates
@CathyIconis depends on the business model though. But also more frequent invoices means smaller (easier to come up with) balances #qbochat

TSheets.com ‏@tsheets
Haha, that’s a really good point @fundinggates Not that I ever do that *cough* 😉 #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
@fundinggates I just worry about invoicing the same client twice a month, unless there are a ton of transactions/activity. #qbochat

Sherrell T. Martin ‏@SherrellTMartin
@CathyIconis can’t you request an increased limit? #qbochat

Sherrell T. Martin ‏@SherrellTMartin
@IconisGroup A1 intuit payment solutions & square. Sometimes PayPal. #qbochat

Iconis Group ‏@IconisGroup
Intuit’s online platform typically payment w/in 10 days of invoicing, all other methods on average of 27 days. via @openforum #QBOChat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
@tsheets @funddinggates – I forgot to pay my own CPA (@brandonverner) because I didn’t see his invoice with my tax return! #qbochat

Funding Gates ‏@fundinggates
@rabshaka21 I try to get everyone on it. Creates less work and makes it easier for your customers to pay (speeds those payments) #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
@SherrellTMartin You can, and it is pretty easy to do, but sometimes clients still don’t ask for enough. #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
@SherrellTMartin Did you know #Intuit has an alternative to Square? #qbochat

Iconis Group ‏@IconisGroup
Intuit Payment Network allows you to get paid via direct deposit for only $0.50 per transaction. https://ipn.intuit.com/ #qbochat

Sherrell T. Martin ‏@SherrellTMartin
“@rabshaka21: It makes me feel like an accounting jedi RT @fundinggates @CathyIconis I love the intuit payment network #qbochat”. Lolol

Billcom ‏@billcom
#reminders w/ @billcom! RT @cathyiconis@fundinggates majority of time ppl aren’t paying slow bc they are stiffing you.they forget. #qbochat

Brent Blackburn ‏@KeepingBooksCC
@IconisGroup Yes, I wish more would do that instead of using a credit card #qbochat

Funding Gates ‏@fundinggates
@tsheets oh I often use myself as an example to customers haha. We all do it! #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
@billcom Can you guys do automatic reminders? #qbochat

Iconis Group ‏@IconisGroup
RT @fundinggates @tsheets oh I often use myself as an example to customers haha. We all do it! #qbochat

Funding Gates ‏@fundinggates
@IconisGroup @openforum link? #qbochat

Sherrell T. Martin ‏@SherrellTMartin
Yes but they don’t deposit the next day. “@CathyIconis: @SherrellTMartin Did you know #Intuit has an alternative to Square? #qbochat”

Funding Gates ‏@fundinggates
@CathyIconis exactly!4some businesses it can be overkill. We have a lot of heavy transaction businesses (i.e wholesale suppliers) #qbochat

Sherrell T. Martin ‏@SherrellTMartin
@IconisGroup IT’S THE BEST!! #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
@fundinggates Here’s that link for you… https://www.openforum.com/articles/6-invoice-tricks-to-get-you-paid-faster/ … #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
@SherrellTMartin That is definitely a drawback. #qbochat

Iconis Group ‏@IconisGroup
@Billcom Receivables also lets you get paid via direct deposit for $0.49 each, plus a monthly fee http://ow.ly/nKTlN #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
No limit w/ them! RT @IconisGroup @Billcom Receivables also lets you get paid via direct deposit for $0.49 each, plus a monthly fee #qbochat

Funding Gates ‏@fundinggates
@CathyIconis thought that sounded familiar. Check out that author bio 🙂 #receivables obsessed #qbochat

Iconis Group ‏@IconisGroup
Q3: What are your typical payment terms and do you stick to them with your clients? #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
@fundinggates Haha!!! It was all in our research for the chat we were doing this week. #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
A3. We are net 15 – and we need to do better on calling on the later paying clients. Most are awesome! #qbochat

Iconis Group ‏@IconisGroup
How often do you collect payment prior to doing work? #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
That’s the way to go! RT @IconisGroup How often do you collect payment prior to doing work? #qbochat

taxgrl ‏@taxgrl
A3: pretty much net 15, but don’t follow up until after 30 days #qbochat

Funding Gates ‏@fundinggates
A3. 30 days is most popular. Sticking w/ these terms is 1 of the most important things u can do. Don’t let them think ur a pushover #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
@taxgrl Why not earlier? #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
@fundinggates Do you guys provide automatic reminders? #qbochat

Rebecca Wells ‏@rabshaka21
Yeah? Espcially prior to initial consults RT @IconisGroup How often do you collect payment prior to doing work? #qbochat

Funding Gates ‏@fundinggates
@CathyIconis stellar research! #qbochat

Iconis Group ‏@IconisGroup
BotBill automates many of the steps in your AR process. http://ow.ly/nKTi7 #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
Haha! First page of google searching for “Getting Paid Faster” RT @fundinggates @CathyIconis stellar research! #qbochat

Billcom ‏@billcom
Yes! Automated & you can set a schedule for AP & AR! @cathyiconis -@billcom Can you guys do automatic reminders? #qbochat

Brent Blackburn ‏@KeepingBooksCC
I collect before doing work on ALL ongoing work, and prior to the real work after an initial consult #qbochat

taxgrl ‏@taxgrl
@CathyIconis probably because I am a pushover! #qbochat

Funding Gates ‏@fundinggates
@CathyIconis we don’t. We keep the human element in. But can send with one click. #qbochat

Iconis Group ‏@IconisGroup
RT @KeepingBooksCC I collect before doing work on ALL ongoing work, and prior to the real work after an initial consult #qbochat

Iconis Group ‏@IconisGroup
MT @billcom Yes! Automated &amp; you can set schedule for AP &amp; AR! @cathyiconis -@billcom Can you guys do automatic reminders? #qbochat

Iconis Group ‏@IconisGroup
RT @fundinggates @CathyIconis we don’t. We keep the human element in. But can send with one click. #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
@billcom sweet! I need to look at that! #qbochat

Funding Gates ‏@fundinggates
@CathyIconis worst thing that can happen is customer gets letter when theyve paid or spoke with you. We want you to keep control #qbochat

Iconis Group ‏@IconisGroup
Are you following up on oustanding invoices after the term has passed? #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
@fundinggates I had a client whose customer paid twice after we sent them a statement. #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
@tsheets Are you still around? #qbochat

Brent Blackburn ‏@KeepingBooksCC
@CathyIconis yeah, you would think that another business person would understand the diff between invoice & statement #qbochat

TSheets.com ‏@tsheets
Absolutely! Just trying to absorb it all, I was under the impression net 30 was standard, so this is really eye-opening! #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
@KeepingBooksCC Now I have to explain that they overpaid. #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
@tsheets I think a lot of consultants are going to net 15 or quicker. #qbochat

Iconis Group ‏@IconisGroup
RT@tsheets Absolutely! Just trying to absorb it all, I was under the impression net 30 was standard, so this is really eye-opening! #qbochat

Iconis Group ‏@IconisGroup
RT @CathyIconis @tsheets I think a lot of consultants are going to net 15 or quicker. #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
There is a ton of risk when what you are selling are your services, so get paid up front or faster! #qbochat

TSheets.com ‏@tsheets
Is that mainly for the cash-flow reasons mentioned earlier? Or is it because technology makes it easier to pay faster? #qbochat

Funding Gates ‏@fundinggates
@CathyIconis money is such a sensitive subject we’ve found customers want to feel in control but have process extremely simplified #qbochat

Iconis Group ‏@IconisGroup
Q4: How often do you have to explain your invoice to clients? #qbochat

Sherrell T. Martin ‏@SherrellTMartin
@IconisGroup A3 I set the terms in my contracts. They have the option of the 5th of each month or the 15th @ 30th #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
I want there to be no question that you owe me money and you are going to pay me. #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
When clients start asking for discounts or payment terms, I get worried. #qbochat

Brent Blackburn ‏@KeepingBooksCC
When I have an itemized invoice, I am brutally complete about what was done, I don’t get any questions #qbochat

Iconis Group ‏@IconisGroup
Make sure you use your product and service items properly so that you can accurately explain your charges. #qbochat

Funding Gates ‏@fundinggates
@tsheets a lot of bigger business will force their terms on u too. I’m talking 45-120! #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
Some of my clients get questions. RT @IconisGroup Q4: How often do you have to explain your invoice to clients? #qbochat

Billcom ‏@billcom
Example pic: Automated & scheduled for AP & AR! @CathyIconis -@billcom Can you guys do automatic reminders? #qbochat http://ow.ly/i/2PxYk

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
It is best to have a contract when you can so that you know all parties are on the same page prior to invoicing. #qbochat

Rebecca Wells ‏@rabshaka21
@fundinggates Isn’t that crap? It really makes me mad. #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
Yep!! RT @fundinggates @tsheets a lot of bigger business will force their terms on u too. I’m talking 45-120! #qbochat

TSheets.com ‏@tsheets
Wow! @fundinggates are you serious? That’s crazy! #qbochat

Sherrell T. Martin ‏@SherrellTMartin
@IconisGroup A4 not too often. # qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
Fortune 500 companies are notorious for paying late or making their own terms. #qbochat

Brent Blackburn ‏@KeepingBooksCC
For one client, he does invoices and I make him let me review them to add more explanation, cut his payment receipt time in half #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
Some Fortune 500 still take any discount given for quick payment even if they pay later. #qbochat

Funding Gates ‏@fundinggates
@CathyIconis you should. #1 warning sign of a deadbeat #qbochat

Iconis Group ‏@IconisGroup
@Zencash seems like a great option to create a buffer when discussing money with challanging clients, $2.95 per call. #QBOChat

Funding Gates ‏@fundinggates
@CathyIconis explain as much as you can in the contract! Do more work upfront so u spend less time chasing payments down the road #qbochat

Funding Gates ‏@fundinggates
@KeepingBooksCC that is awesome! #qbochat

Sherrell T. Martin ‏@SherrellTMartin
Definitely a red flag “@CathyIconis: When clients start asking for discounts or payment terms, I get worried. #qbochat”

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
MT @KeepingBooksCC For a client, he does invoices & make him let me review them to add more info, cut his pmt receipt time in half #qbochat

You can bill your clients by activities and group by day, week or month. #qbochat

Funding Gates ‏@fundinggates
@rabshaka21 its tough bc they WILL pay u, but it could take half a year to see it. Small shops can’t survive on that #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
Giving clients terms is essentially extending them a credit line with you. We should all be doing research on them first! #qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
This is a nice feature in @QBOnline. RT @IconisGroup You can bill your clients by activities and group by day, week or month. #qbochat

Rebecca Wells ‏@rabshaka21
But if the shoe was on the other foot, you couldn’t get away with that, lame.RT @fundinggates @rabshaka21 Small shops can’t survive#qbochat

Cathy Iconis ‏@CathyIconis
@KeepingBooksCC I think that should be a service line on your site! #qbochat

Iconis Group ‏@IconisGroup
Q5: Do you recommend any apps out there that work with @QBOnline to help get paid faster? #qbochat

Brent Blackburn ‏@KeepingBooksCC
@CathyIconis Good thought! #qbochat

Iconis Group ‏@IconisGroup

TSheets.com ‏@tsheets
Haha! Ok ok, A5, TSheets gets the time ready for invoicing ASAP if you bill for your time 😀 #qbochat

QBOchat Admin

#QBOchat began in July 2013 with the simple idea to host a weekly Twitter conversation around QuickBooks Online (QBO). We have since grown into a very strong community comprised of a diverse group of users. Our weekly tweet chat is held each Thursday at 3:00PM Eastern. The discussions cover a wide range of topics including QBO’s latest features and updates, business operation tips and apps that integrate with QBO, to name just a few.
