Hi everyone! What do you guys like to use for electronic payments? I would really like to offer that option to clients but don't know what to use. I often need to change invoices a bit and do everything manually/paper printed copies right now.

Cash app and Venmo. Mainly Venmo though. Zelle is another one but I have not used it yet.

I take cash, check, or zelle. I just started taking zelle a few months ago and like it so far.

I love Zelle

It makes end of the year totals for taxes super easy too.

In a pinch last week, a parent paid me via Facebook payments. I normally only accept check, but they weren't going to be able to make it any other way. I bank at a very small, rural bank and money transfer was instantaneous.

I use the kinder lime app for "daily sheets" and parent communication. I send invoices through it as well. The parents can pay through the app. I have the option to put the small fee on their end or mine. I have it on the parents. I still accept cash and check as well.

I just posted about this a few weeks ago. I ended up going with zelle and I really like it. It is sooooo easy and the money is there like that.

Another poster shared this info in another thread about electronic payments. Seems like really good information to know!

I use kinderlime as invoice through there. I have the option of having the parents pay the transaction fee so it's free for me if they pay online. I still accept checks and cash for those who do not want to pay online.

All of my parents pay me through the KidKare website. I just started using it in January,and I have liked it so far.
