What to Do When Customers Won’t Pay
Customers who fall behind on their payments typically fall under one of three categories: clients who will go to extreme lengths to avoid paying, clients who choose to pay sporadically, and clients who want to pay on time but cannot because of financial trouble. The last two type of customers are manageable – you can work with them and suggest they either pay in full or make scheduled partial payments that are consistent.
For small business debt collection, you should:
- Avoid harassing customers who owe: If your actions can be considered harassing, you can find yourself facing a legal battle
- Write letters: You want to make sure that any form of communication you have with the unpaying client has a paper trail and can be traced back to.
- Hire a business lawyer: Oftentimes litigation is unavoidable, especially when dealing with individuals who refuse to pay, and you want proper representation when taking an issue to court.
