If you used version 1 of Payzip, you’ll know it only had two states for categorising invoice amounts: due and paid. Of course, real-world invoices don’t work this way — you have a limited amount of time to pay, and then the amount becomes overdue. This helps you separate what items need actioning right now from what needs a gentle nudge over the coming days and weeks.

We’ve introduced overdue as a status in Payzip. Now, when you create and send an invoice, the amount is owed before the specified due date, and overdue once it elapses, as you’d expect. Additionally, when sending unpaid invoice reminders, you can now target just the overdue invoices, or all currently unpaid invoices — whichever you prefer.

When you log into Payzip, we surface overdue invoices right there on the front page, so you can action them immediately. We also show how much is currently overdue and owed to the club in total, so you can get up-to-date with a glance.

In the Invoices section, you’ll also see which invoices have payments that are overdue:

When you view the invoice recipients, we’ll show you how much is overdue in the header section. In the example that follows, everything that is owed is currently also overdue:

We’re currently thinking about how we can build on this in a meaningful way, such as with automated reminders to members ahead of the due date. Would this be useful to you? How would you want it to work for your club? Let us know.
