How to select online billing software
Payment gateways are a very important feature for you to consider. If you are dealing with clients from other countries that may/may not be familiar with certain payment gateways it might be a good idea to have a variety to choose from. Yes, Pay Pal is by far the most familiar, but there are other options such as Google Checkout, Authorize.net, and World Pay just to name a few.
You need to ask yourself- what is my business trying to accomplish? How can we bill our customers in an effective and efficient manner? What is my business model? It might be a good idea to set up an outline of what your business is trying to strive towards. If your business wants to sell jewelry, clothing, music, and/or any product that needs an online billing system in connection with the software, you need to decide how to set it up.
Customers need to be able to sign up for the online billing software. It is more efficient to have the customer enter their personal information online as oppose to over the telephone. That way, the company can keep track of their clientele. What they request and how much they request etc. This is why the payment gateways are so important for the website; it will let the customers enter their information directly.
Your customers also deserve the option of ordering all of the necessary software online. You should allow your customers any method of ordering the information for the software either online or via the telephone. If a customer isn’t computer savvy, and is unsure how to navigate their way around the site, that’s where you come in. There should be a phone number listed on the website and a constant line of communication between you and a potential customer. It is important to have all access available for ordering information.
