There are several reasons all tied to keeping my costs down and my rates affordable.
1 - Non paying customers cause price increase for paying customers.
2 - To keep rates low, cash flow must be maintained. Non payment hinders that and checks slow it down. You never have to wait cash to clear the bank.
3 - Bad checks cost me money, if I can't trust you to pay on time, can I trust your check to clear? (of course this is said more "diplomatically"
