Net 30: What Is it?
Net 30 is an invoice payment phrase that means the customer must pay the entirety of their bill in 30 days or fewer. Often if the customer does not pay within the 30 day period, interest is charged.
Not all clients will understand what net 30 means, so it is important to make a note somewhere on the invoice to let first-time clients know what is expected.
