If you plan to provide WooCommerce pay later options to empower your customers and give them more flexibility, it’s essential to learn about the concept of net payment terms.

These two are just some of the most common payment terms, but depending on your industry, you may encounter other variations such as 15, 45, or even 90 days. In the next section, we’ll walk you through key reasons why you should consider offering net payment terms in your business.
