There are not many bigger challenges for small business owners or managers then waiting 30 to 60 days to get paid by their customers. Although larger companies can generally afford it, smaller businesses can not afford the delay. As a matter of fact, waiting to get paid on invoices can make cash flow problems that affect the owners capability to meet payroll or pay the companys bills. This problem can be more annoying if the business has a number of orders that it cannot fulfill because its cash is tied up in unpaid invoices.
