<<<I'm having success with the newsletter so far without it, but I often wonder if there aren't some business owners who would rather pay by invoice.>

Probably most business owners would because it would delay payment at least by a few days if not more... Catch could be the difficulty of getting payment if an invoice is not paid. Unless the fees for your email newsletter are pretty steep it could cost you more to 'pursue' payment than what you would gain by pursuing it. My feelings here are that an email newsletter may be hugely useful but is also by its nature a rather ephemeral thing. You can't compensate for failure to pay by taking your email back!


Since this is an internet publication, how about E-mailing them an invoice marked "paid"? That's probably useable as a tax record for a business deduction.
