Sept. 30, 2009: Secure, Online System Enables HVAC Contractors to Offer Payment Plans

September 30, 2009

MARBLE HILL, Mo. - Although heating and cooling companies today are finding it more necessary to offer payment plans for some of their services, noted eClientPayments.com, such payment plans can create additional overhead costs and collection issues. eClientPayments.com said it offers an easy-to-use and cost-effective solution for secure, online customer payments that can greatly decrease or eliminate collection efforts.

According to eClientPayments.com, it offers the ability for HVAC contractors to create simple, custom payment plans that are paid on a recurring basis, similar to subscription-based memberships proven to be popular among consumers. The only requirement to use the service is a business PayPal account, as the Web-based application requires no software or hardware purchase. Payments are made through secure, online transactions handled by PayPal, which eliminates the worry of handling sensitive data. Additionally, support staff has no worries regarding technical issues or complicated systems to learn. eClientPayments.com said it offers the same convenient service for any business extending payment plans to consumers or clients.

Because eClientPayments plans are recurring, once initiated by a customer, income is automatically received each month for the duration of required billing cycles. There is no need for customers to “remember to pay their bill” each month, and thus the service can help to eliminate the need for collections. The company said the service helps ensure monthly, on-time cash flow while providing HVAC contractors a convenient way to assist customers in today’s difficult economy.
