Whether you’re a freelancer working in the gig economy or are scaling your small business to new heights, how you collect payments says a lot about your company. The more complex this process becomes, the more effort you must devote to managing your payment system. As order management, on-time billing and reporting become essential to the success of your company, cumbersome financial platforms can negatively impact the amount of time spent running your business, a trade-off that takes you away from doing what you do best – solving your customer’s problems.
According to data from SAP Concur, 73 percent of small businesses rely daily on manual processes to send and collect payments. Relying on paper records may have worked in the past, but the outdated process can make it difficult to track outstanding payments. Customers can readily fall through the cracks, preventing you from collecting your full dues. Fortunately, thanks to technology, integrated payment platforms can simplify much of the billing and invoicing process saving you time and reducing human error. Sifting through piles of invoices and receipts becomes a thing of the past, as all your payment information is neatly displayed online whenever you need it.
The 3 Keys to Simple Invoicing
1) Simplify the Payment Process
The first rule of effective invoice management is to streamline the entire payment process. Avoid the temptation to use invoices to market to your clients and instead embrace a simple design that clearly articulates what services or products were rendered and what is now due. This logic also extends to the payment process itself. When delivering digital invoices to your customers, ensure that they can pay using a credit or debit card and minimize the number of pages that they must navigate through to finalize their payment. This will prevent errors and helps guarantee faster payment.
2) Automate Payment Reminders
We’ve all been there, a bill arrives and we set it aside to be paid at a later date only to discover three weeks later that we have yet to actually pay it. Payment reminders are a quick and easy way to save time and resources when dealing with late accounts. Online invoicing solutions allow you to resubmit an invoice to a client as a reminder that payment is due. When looking for an invoicing platform, make sure this service is included.
3) Streamline Tracking and Reporting
Your invoicing system must enable you to quickly track the status of your payments. Once identified and sorted, you may then choose to close and properly file the invoice, extend the invoice’s payment terms or send a payment reminder to your customer. Proper invoice analysis also helps in forecasting the demand for goods and services, while helping you maintain appropriate inventory levels. A simple and easy to navigate dashboard with export functionality is essential to streamline your tracking needs.

2019 may already be a distant memory for many of us, but if you own cryptocurrency, the year was marked by some exciting highs and disappointing lows. Fortunately, prices are again rising and experts predict that 2020 could be a breakout year for bitcoin and other popular cryptocurrencies. Whether or not you trust the predictions of digital currency pundits is completely up to you. After all, security titan John McAfee famously predicted that bitcoin would be valued at $1 million by the end of 2020. McAfee has now changed his tune. Earlier this month on Twitter, he confirmed that his prediction was nothing more than a “ruse to onboard new users.”
Despite the widespread dissemination of misleading, contradictory and downright false information about the cryptocurrency market, decentralized digital currency adoption continues to climb. But this news hides an insidious fact: cryptocurrency theft is rapidly increasing. According to blockchain analysis firm Chainanalysis, hackers successfully breached 11 cryptocurrency exchanges in 2019, stealing more than $283 million worth of cryptocurrency. If you look at data from the last decade, these hacks represent the highest number of security breaches at digital currency exchanges in a single year. For comparison, only 6 major exchangers were breached in 2018.
Fortunately, these numbers hint at some good news. Thanks to improved security and transaction verification systems, hackers are escaping with less and less cryptocurrency from exchanges. The $283 million loss is less than one-third of the $875.5 million worth of crypto that hackers stole in 2018. Of course, hackers are by no means only targeting exchanges. Their operations are for more complex than that. According to security provider Carbon Black, the first half of 2019 saw nearly $1.1 billion in cryptocurrency fall into the hands of cybercriminals. Exchanges comprised only 27% of attacks, with businesses (21%), private users (14%) and government (7%) accounting for almost 70% of documented cryptocurrency theft.
Why Hackers Target Cryptocurrency?
Blockchain, the ledger technology on which cryptocurrencies like bitcoin rely on, is very secure. The problem rests with who is able to make transactions on the blockchain. The answer to that question is anyone. Because the identity of individual cryptocurrency wallet holders is never known, digital currency’s anonymity and personal privacy conspire to make it the perfect tool for scammers and hackers. In this manner, the decentralized peer to peer nature of cryptocurrencies that draw users to it, also conspires to work to the advantages of individuals determined to use it for illicit purposes.
How To Protect Your Digital Assets
Whether you’re a seasoned financial strategist of a first-time cryptocurrency investor, you’ll want to take the necessary time to thoroughly scrutinize your chosen digital currency exchange. Look for third-party audits, which are an excellent sign that the organization you are considering purchasing cryptocurrency from is well-run and safe.
Most importantly, you’ll want to ensure that your cryptocurrency wallet is secure. Cold wallets that rely on hardware authentication and that are physically disconnected from the internet when not in use, provide you with the highest security of any cryptocurrency wallet. There are no known incidences of hardware wallets being compromised, and when used correctly, experts single them out as the ideal cryptocurrency storage solution.
