COLLECTION EMAILS AND EXAMPLES

Studies show that the more contact you have with customers, the more success you will have with collecting your open accounts receivable on time. One great way to contact customers is via email. The least amount of work goes into this step, especially if using an automated email service which sends out pre-created emails to customers automatically. However, you can’t simply send the same email to every customers. Some may be later than other, which means your tone should be different for each. Many of our customers have also found that emails that sound exactly the same over and over will eventually get ignored by customers.
Below are each different email you should be sending out to past due accounts and what it should contain.

REMINDER EMAILS

You should remind customers to pay you a few days before the invoice is due and remind them that there is still a balance due on their account. You may want to wait until the due date for strategic customers, but newer customers 3-5 days before the invoice due date.

COLLECTIONS EMAILS

As the invoice ages you will need to adjust the tone of your communications with customers. Invoices that have aged beyond two weeks are becoming a serious risk. A collections email should be sent reminding the customer of the past due balance with a more serious tone than previous communications. The customer needs to understand that this is becoming a serious issue for your organization and that failure to remedy the situation will have negative consequences. Still, your communication does not need to be hostile and can still reinforce your commitment to working with them to resolve the issue.
