Arrears management tools

Recurring payments

Our recurring payments service helps your customers to never miss a payment and fall into arrears. After taking a payment, you can add a prompt for your customers to set up a recurring payment on their account. The customer simply saves their card details and their minimum payment will be taken on the date it is due every month. A few days before the payment is due to be taken, the customer will receive a text message reminder so they can make sure the funds are available. They will also receive a confirmation message when the payment is processed.

Persistent debt

To add to our recurring payments tool, our persistent debt service can help you to communicate with your customers who may be falling into a cycle of persistent debt. This is a tool for customers who are consistently paying their minimum balance each month. To reduce their debt faster, you can include prompts for them to pay more towards their balance, reducing their debt and boosting your collections process.
