  • Improved Collections

We’ll take a look at all three features to help you get a sense of what makes ReliaBills PLUS so effective for growing businesses and subscription-based companies.

Better Deliverability

An important part of getting your invoice paid is making sure that the invoice is received. ReliaBills PLUS offers bounce detection to identify which emails have bounced so that you can fix the problem and complete your invoice delivery. Our PLUS version also allows you to send invoices based on your customer’s mail preference, whether by snail mail or paperless.

Different credit card options for easier payments

Easier Payments

The easier it is for your customers to pay, the better chance your business has of getting paid. ReliaBills PLUS offers online payments through our built-in merchant account. The PLUS version lets you store electronic payment methods for automatic payments and conducts automated re-tries if a payment fails.

Improved Collections

ReliaBills PLUS provides tools to drastically improve your collection process. Utilize custom and personalized automated payment reminders to be sent by your choice of email, snail mail, or text. Your business can take advantage of sending automated late fees and automated customer account statements. Our PLUS version also gives customers access to a brandable customer portal so that they can self-manage their payments. Additionally, it offers excellent accounts receivable and past due invoice reporting for administrative assistance to your business.

Why Incorporate Recurring Billing?

If your company is still using the traditional way of billing, ReliaBills can help transition it to the present and future with its recurring billing feature. As business owners, we know just how busy you are and how much time and effort you make to run your business. The last thing you need to worry about is billing.

Recurring billing via ReliaBills can automate your billing process and make life easier for both you and your customers. We can help grow your business through the following features:

Automated Invoice Creation

ReliaBills lets you create recurring invoice templates that will save you a lot of time, effort, and money. We’ll also import/generate and send your invoices automatically. Need edits? No problem, you can send your invoice whenever you want.

Automated Variable Payments

Once you enroll your clients in AutoPay, they can make payments automatically, even if the price changes per month.

Recurring Invoices

ReliaBills lets you create invoices meant for recurring billing. You can list all the open invoices, each displaying an open invoice and account balance. With the ReliaBill recurring feature, you can set your invoices to be sent to your customers in regular intervals of time. You can create a recurring invoice and have it sent at a fixed interval. That way, you won’t have to worry about anything. You can even make edits or updates on the invoice in case of any changes in the pricing.

Failed Payment Mitigation

Automated payments aren’t perfect — they will tend to fail at some point due to varying reasons (insufficient funds, expired cards, closed bank accounts, etc.). Fortunately, with ReliaBills, you can automatically notify your customer whenever their payment fails. You can even automate re-attempts on failed payments to ensure that the payments go through. That way, you won’t have any reasons not to get paid.

Customer Portal

Finally, customers also have the option to safely and securely save and store their payment information. Doing so will allow them to set up auto-payments. That way, they won’t have to re-enter all of their details whenever they do a transaction from your business again.

What Can Recurring Billing Do for My Business?

Incorporating recurring billing will enable you to bill your customers more efficiently. You won’t have to manually send them invoices and wait for payment since our system can automate that process for you. The entire process is automatic so that you can focus more on what matters the most: your business.

This simple yet crucial feature can make a huge difference and will drastically change your billing process for the better. Specifically, recurring billing can provide your business with the following perks:

Consistent Cash Flow

Recurring billing will give you a stable and more reliable cash flow since you’re not only making it easier for your business to send an invoice, but you’re also making it convenient for your customers to make payments. Yes, customers come and go like they always do. Still, you are putting yourself and your business in a better position to retain as many customers as you can by adding recurring billing to your billing process.

Improvement in Accounts Receivable

When you start automating payments, you will reduce the time it will take for your customers to make payments. In turn, you will also reduce the potential collection costs. That makes recurring billing an essential investment that will yield better returns for your business.

Prevent Fraud

Recurring billing features an integrated payment gateway that processes each recurring payment in a safe and secure system. It also stores the payment information customers provide on a server to ensure that you can review these credentials whenever you need to. This helps protect your business against frauds and cybercriminals since this process follows best practices like compliance with the Payment Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
