Respaid - a payment solution for late payment

Unlocking the Power of AI: Respaid's Innovative Solution for Small Late Payments

In the bustling startup landscape of 2020, one entrepreneur had a vision to address a pressing issue that often lurked in the shadows, threatening the very existence of budding businesses. John Banner, a multifaceted individual with a background in engineering, a graduate of Harvard Business School, and a commander in the French Republican Guard, embarked on a mission to revolutionize the way small late payments were managed. With a team of 28 dedicated individuals hailing from five different countries, Respaid was born in the heart of San Francisco. In this article, we'll delve deep into the world of Respaid, exploring its origins, unique approach, and the impact it's making in the world of late payments.

How Did Respaid Get Started?

Small debts almost killed my last startup.

This statement from John Banner, the founder of Respaid, echoes the sentiment of countless entrepreneurs who have faced the same daunting challenge. Late payments, often considered a minor nuisance, can quickly accumulate and wreak havoc on a business's financial health. But John's journey began with a realization: "In my previous startup, I didn't find a solution to chase small debts, and debt collectors would not take us seriously regarding volume or risk too high (they tend to select debts they have more chance to be collected). I realized 1/4 startups fail due to small debts. I knew the only way to fix it was through technology + respect."

The seed of Respaid was planted, and the company set out on a path to develop an innovative solution that combined technology with respect. Eighteen months later, Respaid not only became the #1 debt collector on Trustpilot but also secured 16 unicorn customers. The impact was undeniable, but there was one missing piece in this remarkable journey – an official launch in the United States.

As John Banner proudly declares, "But... we never officially launched in the US... until today!"

Introducing Respaid: A Payment Solution for Late Payments

"We collect AR, chargebacks, and bills as low as a $5 bill (B2B, B2C), using a simple lost disputes CSV file (no attached invoices required)."

Respaid's core offering is a revolutionary payment solution designed to tackle late payments head-on. Their approach is simple yet highly effective: they use AI to respectfully collect account receivables, unpaid bills, and chargebacks. What truly sets Respaid apart is their ability to handle bills as low as $5, catering to both the B2B and B2C sectors.

The Power of AI: Transforming Collections

Traditional debt collection methods often leave much to be desired. They can be overly harsh, leaving customers offended, or too lenient, resulting in payments being taken lightly. Respaid has found the perfect balance by adopting an approach similar to that of a lawyer, combined with a touch of empathy and simplicity.

This unique combination results in a remarkable Net Promoter Score (NPS) of 93, showcasing the high level of satisfaction among their customers. Beyond the financial aspect, Respaid understands the importance of maintaining a positive brand reputation, and their approach ensures that your company's image remains untarnished.

Respaid has already made its mark in eight different industries, including retail, insurance, finance, and services. Their process typically begins with a simple excel file, but for those seeking automation, integration through Zapier or direct API is also available. The impressive statistic that Respaid collects one overdue bill every three minutes speaks volumes about its efficiency and effectiveness.

Fair Pricing: Pay Only for Success

One of the standout features of Respaid's business model is its fair and transparent pricing. In an industry where opacity often reigns supreme, Respaid takes a refreshing approach. They understand that calculating pricing based on debt quality isn't the right way to go.

With Respaid, you only pay a success fee when they succeed, starting at just 10.9%. In fact, they're one of the very few companies in the industry to openly display a pricing page. To sweeten the deal further, they offer a one-month trial period with the code "YCS23," eliminating any concerns about upfront license fees.
