The Gentle Reminders Club is an online platform that encourages ethical business behaviour when it comes to settling invoices on time, contributing to building a brand’s “reputation capital”.
A business can invite its new clients to join the club.
Upon sending them your invoice, the tool gently reminds them to pay.
It rewards prompt payment by giving the client a good rating.
If they fail to pay on time it will negatively affect their rating.
