You don't make promises you can't keep, right! So if your customer says they are going to pay and don't - report them.
Warn other members this customer is unable to pay their bills as they fall due.
Take a tour
If you already have a payment problem, or even a debt you had written off, try our Payment Resolution Service - for a limited time the first one is free! (and you don't even need to be a member)
Three ways that we will help you avoid bad debt and boost cash flow.
As a member of Shark Patrol you can:
Let customers know where you stand on credit control
It's always a good idea to show your customers exactly where you stand on credit control right from the start. As a member of Shark Patrol you are entitled to use our logo and include "We are members of sharkpatrol.co.nz and report problem payers" (or your words to the same effect) on your invoices and statements.
"Shark Patrol is a brilliant service that has significantly improved our debtor days and made collection of our overdues much easier."
"We explain to non-paying customers that if they do not promptly pay their outstanding account they'll be listed on Shark Patrol, and in almost every case they then fall over themselves to pay promptly."
"For those who still hold out Shark Patrol will go into bat with collection letters that achieve excellent results. Shark Patrol has become a valued part of our standard business and operating procedures, and merit our highest recommendation for the quality of their service!"
