1 > Simplify Transactions: Payment management solution

With money flying in, out, and everywhere each day, why not simplify your company’s account-tracking process? An online tool that manages easy, paper-free transactions, PayPal.com currently has 10 million consumers hooked on their service. Paypal now offers corporate accounts, letting businesses manage payables and receivables online. Business users can accept online credit card payments without opening a merchant account, and can create online shopping carts that integrate fully with the Paypal service. What’s more, users can make thousands of payments at once without ever having to write a check. The mass payment feature lets you pay out all of your affiliate commissions, employee benefits, and customer rebates, with the simple upload of one text file. So why not lose the hassle and manage it online? Service fees are based on transactions completed.

The lesson: Making money is the hard part. Collecting and managing it should be easy. So try out a service that simplifies the administration, leaving the bulk of your time to be spent on the real issues.

2 > Send Smart: Get professional before you mail

Print stamps from your laser printer right onto your direct mail. Check out Stamps.com, the Internet mailing solution that lets you print labels and postage, including your company logo, directly onto envelopes and packages, eliminating one huge step from the fulfillment process. The service integrates fully with most existing databases, provides full tracking of your sending and spending for the year, and costs only $16 per month plus the cost of postage. It even verifies all addresses before printing out labels, and of course it lets you cross “stop at the post office” off your to-do list.

The lesson: Cut a step out of the fulfillment process while adding a degree of professionalism to all mailings bearing your logo. Capitalize on this convenience and save the aspirin for another day.
