Getting paid for overdue invoices just got easier with our new Collections Assist feature. Here’s how it works.
Say hello to Collections Assist — a handy tool to help you get paid for overdue invoices. Leverage this feature for those sticky situations when customers are unwilling to pay their long overdue invoices. We believe in putting powerful new tools in your hands, and Collections Assist puts money in your pocket instead of writing off an invoice.
How does Collections Assist work?
If invoices are lingering past 30 days overdue, Collections Assist will be unlocked in your partner dashboard. From there, you will be able to submit overdue invoices to collections — it’s that simple!
Are there any fees associated?
Collections Assist fees are all success-based, with only a 1% service fee upfront to process the initial transaction per invoice. A third-party team will handle collections and if they are successful in collecting the overdue invoice, a 20% - 25% fee is applied and the remaining amount is paid out to you.
How will Alternative Payments collect on overdue invoices?
Our third-party team employs a multi-channel approach and gets into contact via text, calling, emailing or in-person. While we handle the intricacies of collections, you can focus on running your business without the worry of overdue invoices.
