We work with showrooms in the US, that sell to end clients, and one of them has described to us a process used by another (US) supplier as follows:
1. Supplier (us) writes the invoice and then sends the Showroom a request for payment via an email link.
2. Showroom clicks on the link which takes them through to quickbooks and they enter the details from the clients check they have in their hands and it all magically happens..... ie the check is “paid in” electronically. Same process for Credit Card payments.
3. They then strike through the physical check so it can’t be used twice and send the checks in a bundle (every month) for our records.
