For example, "net 30 days" should be specified as "net 30 days from acceptance" or "net 30 days from date of bill" or "net 30 days from date of shipment" or "net 30 days from date of invoice for services", etc.; this is to avoid confusion and delay of payment.
If the order is billed on the 1st through the 10th it is due on the 20th so the valid dates for the initial payterm are 1-10.
Then the alternate payterm #1 is setup so that it is valid from the 11th-20th, an order billed with this payterm is due on the 31st.
The word net in this sense means "total after all discounts." It originally derives from the Latin nitere (to shine) and nitidus (elegant, trim), and more recently from the French net (sharp, neat, clean).
Net 30 is a term that most business and municipalities (federal, state, and local) use in the United States.
The definition for this type of payment method is simple.After that date, if the payment is not completed, an interest charge of X% per month may be added to your acount, possibly plus other services charges.NOTE: the amount X of interest charge must be specified in the agreement, nowadays it is usually about 1.5% per month.In other words, you should let clients know a deadline for payment, and you can expect to be paid by your deadline.Clients who pay promptly are showing respect for your work and your professional relationship.
