About the Webinar
Customer ‘pushback terms’ and web billing portals have become prevalent over the past 15 years, and without a doubt they are here to stay. And despite large suppliers involving legal counsel to duke out the ‘battle of the forms’ with their customers, there has generally been a begrudging gradual acceptance of customer forced payment terms, deductions, and billing portals.
However, there is a financial cost to accepting revised payment terms and billing portals that need to be accounted for when negotiating pricing, discounts, rebates, and payment methods. Many companies overlook the costs to get paid and instead absorb the losses here and there as the cost of doing business. They don’t necessarily see the cumulative effect they have on their company’s bottom line when all of these layered costs are put together.
This session will review the history, creative terms language, sneaky deductions & fees, layered fees within billing portals, and how to account for all of the open and hidden costs involved so that your company has the financial upper hand when negotiating prices and terms.
