In such case, the following will be the sample letter format. You can use the below letter format for writing your own request letter for outstanding payment overdue. Here is how:

Re: Request of outstanding payment

Dear Mr. Bikenar,

This is to notify you that the payment owed by you on invoice number 74532 is 4 weeks overdue. The amount of $731 was due on September 05, 2021. 

I have hereby enclosed a self addressed stamped envelope for you to send the said amount by cheque along with your account number when you receive this letter. 

You can also consider paying the amount by other methods like credit card or payoneer or paypal or any other online payment services. Enclosed is a copy of the invoice that was sent to you with highlighting of the date and amount to be paid. 

If you failed to pay this overdue, a late fee will be applied to your bill and a new invoice will be sent to you. If you have already paid the overdue before reaching this letter, you may disregard this letter, otherwise pay the over due as soon as possible after getting this letter.

Thanking you for your attention to this matter.
