Ready to start, store front payments?

Hey everyone!

Finally got my business cards and door hangers in, I am focused on store front for now so the door hangers will collect dust for a little.

As I go canvasing, when I land my first job and complete it what do you recommend for taking payment?

Cash seems easy and logical but I want to know how you all started taking payments, also to take into consideration is tax, I will probably round up to make an even number.

I have created an account with an invoicing app (free) which I can email them and have them process payment via paypal or directly to my bank account.

I am not looking to buy anything more at this time as I am just starting, I know Jobber is great and potential future for me.

Thanks and I am very excited to start! I am in sales now so a little talking experience I think will help :slight_smile:

You’ll find some storefronts will want to pay you out of the till. For those customers you need a cash receipt to give them.

Find out from your City if you need a business license; most do and for me it is only $65 per year.

Thanks Gary,

I have registered my business and am licensed now. I will be calling around insurance today or tomorrow. We have 13% so that will have to be charged per quote.
