Today’s consumers are continually finding new, simple and effective ways to bring green solutions into their personal, everyday routines – biking to work, using reusable water bottles instead of disposable plastic, driving fuel-efficient cars. It only makes sense that businesses take the plunge forward and accept credit card payments online through electronic invoicing to help save both the environment and money.
Electronic invoicing is an easy way for businesses to reduce the cost and waste associated with paper billing. Whatever the size of your business, your customers will appreciate the convenience of managing their account and making payments online, as well as knowing that they’re contributing to a green initiative.
If you’re still wondering how your business can have an impact on the environment, consider the facts posted by PayItGreen, a coalition led by the Electronic Payments Association:
The collective impact of 1 out of 5 households switching to electronic billing and payments each year would allow us to…
• Save 151 million pounds of paper
• Save 1.8 million trees
• Avoid producing 1.4 million gallons of wastewater – enough to fill 2,180 Olympic-size swimming pools
• Avoid using 103 million gallons of gasoline to mail payments
When combined with the financial benefits of electronic invoicing, such as lower costs and a reduced number of late payments, paperless billing is the way to go. Find out more about electronic invoicing.
