In this article, you will learn how to collect payments for service plan subscriptions in Workiz.
Service Plans is a great tool for creating and managing recurring visits for general services or maintenance. With Service Plans, you can easily create service plan templates and subscribe your clients to those plans — not only allowing you to account for recurring work, but also ensure you are automatically getting paid on time.
To use Service Plans, you will first need to enable the add-on. To learn more about enabling Service Plans, please see this article.
When subscribing your clients to service plans, you will have the option to send a payment request or enter the payment manually.
Sending payment request
Sending payment requests is the recommended method for collecting payments for service plans. This method is powered by Workiz Pay, which allows you to set auto-recurring payments to ensure you get paid on time and service plans remain uninterrupted.
When sending a payment request, your client will receive a link to view the plan on the Workiz client portal, where they can review the plan, submit payment, and save their card on file for future payments across the platform.
Entering payment manually
Workiz also provides the option to enter payments manually.
With Workiz Pay enabled, you can manually enter a credit card payment once and save your client’s card on file for future payments across the platform.
Offline payments, such as cash or a check, will have to be entered manually each time a payment is due via the invoice page for the service plan.
When entering the initial payment manually, you are effectively accepting the plan on behalf of your client. After entering the payment, you will need to send your clients a link to view the plan on the Workiz client portal. You can also request a signature at this stage.
