Default Do You Give Discounts If They Pay A Month In Advance?

If so how much. I watch two brothers part time three days a week for $270.00 $135 for each child. 8:15 to 5:15.

Nope, I don't give them any discounts if they are paying a month in advance. One of my parent always paid me a month in advance since they are part time.

I would consider it b/c it would be beneficial for me to get my $$$ upfront. I would make it a small discount though, maybe 4-5%

janarae- 4-5% doesn't sound like a small discount to me! Just saying. On a month with no school holidays I would be open 20 days so 5% would be an entire free day once a month. ...personally I would hold out for the payment at the first of the month with no discount.....greedy me

Well I am desperate right now so I would consider it, not sure if I would actually do it but I really need customers! I realize it would likely be one free day, maybe some other discount like a free date night, something!

I have a couple of families that pay monthly. It's due before the 1st for the upcoming month and I don't discount it. Just remember that some months have 5 pay days and some 4 so I figure it yearly. So to get the monthly rate I just take 52 weeks x weekly rate / 12 months.
