Monthly payments - How many visits do you base yours on?

Not sure if the title makes sense?I am trying to persuade some of my customers to pay a pro-rata figure monthly, all year round. I know all customers and circumstances are different but would you say on average 20 visits for fortnightly and 40-42 for weekly?Hope it makes sense 'cos I'm still down the office and getting tired :-) Thanks, DarrenSee More
