Default Payment Apps

Does anyone have an app or anything online that is free to use that you can accept payments from? I'm about tired of people saying they forgot their checkbooks, junior didn't come, but I'll stop after work to pay you and then forget, etc. I do have 2 people that bank where I do, so they easily transfer money and that's great! I would love an app that does that but it has to be free and immediate access. Thanks!

Add a late payment fee and add it every day until everything is paid (including fees) in full 👍

Mine is $25 a day for every calendar day until paid. When I get the line oh I forgot my check book-

Me: oh no problem, please dont forget to add the $25 a day late payment fee when you pay.

Funny how I get oh! Really-? But but Ill pay tomorrow-! Oh let me go look in the car maybe its there... and low and behold it was in the car the whole time! 😬

Venmo. Someone on here suggested it and I did some research and started using it last spring. All my parents jumped on board and created an account (it takes a few days to activate).
I sent a letter home saying that they had a knew option of payment, and steps on how to set it up. The following week everyone paid me through this app.

And the money transfer to my account the next day. Even when the message says that it will take two days. ( My week ends on Thursday, so I get paid then.)

Bonus for me, one family pays me on Tuesday when they pay there bills for the week.

Many of my parents opted to use Zelle

It's free and the money appears in my account minutes after the parent sent it.

Depends on your bank or credit union. During a holiday weekend, it said it was going to take extra time but I still had it the next day. Anytime you initiate the transfer after 7 p.m. it says that it will take an extra day but I still get it the next day.
