Got that from Woosh, "You must pay within 7 days" they didn't say what they would do, but I wasn't going to wait to find out

It's kind of funny how companies do that, when they're usually themselves a month or two behind on their supplier invoices.

I will say though that they dont tend to do that to me - it's either because I'm business or because I've been with them about six years.




I finally have fibre!  Had to leave the country to get it though.

Debt collection is a huge headache, many people are notoriously lazy at paying things on time. A lot of businesses are moving to pre pay models, you pay us x then we give you service for y days rather than give you service then collect the pay later.

Don't we pay in advance anyway for Orcon? Like we pay the plan charge a month ahead and then the overage / phone usage a month later?

Always pay the bill before the due date, so don't no about the experience sorry.

freitasm: So true... Even large companies sometimes are taking months to pay their bills.

Heh, I had one client take 9 months to pay me.  I kept invoicing them by email, postal service, even included the "or I'll send it to Baycorp" line, and still they didn't pay.

That's what I thought too. Foot in mouth

They invoice ahead, and then you normally pay for it during the month so you are really only paying ahead for about half of the month.

I find the places expecting payment within 7 days to be totally unrealistic. it always used to be 21 days, and slowly got less and less and less.

One power company wanted 10 days to get the discount. Screw that.

Payment within 7 is perfectly acceptable.

Kyanar.... get on the phone and talk to your clients, that will bring results

Not when it can take nzpost, who they are contracting to send the bill that long to get it delivered..

I find 21 to be acceptable, thats what I pay based on. 20th of the month following was the norm in the past, and they would get the invoices out on the last of the month which is where 21 days came from with the shift to continuous billing.
