For our clients who have customers that don't want to have to think about their payments, or clients who have situations where they want to enforce automatic payment as a term of granting credit, FirsTech provides a direct debit solution.

Direct debit provides a safe and easy way to electronically debit the customer's bank account each month at minimal cost.  By signing up for direct debit, the customer authorizes the company to debit payments from their checking and/or savings accounts.  Each month, FirsTech processes the customer direct payments and credits the client's receivables account with the total amount of direct debit transactions. Credits are received on the same date the transactions are debited from the customer accounts.

Direct knowledge of payment timing increases forecasting accuracy since the payment is ensured to be received on the due date.
