Because we're an open marketplace, once a client has contacted and hired you the transaction takes place between you and the client.
We always recommend invoicing them as you would any other client.
Here are some tips to make sure you get paid without hassle:
- Discuss payment agreements and budget BEFORE you start working on the project.
- Include (in your proposal remarks) your terms and conditions. Also, take note of any terms and conditions in the client's project description.
- Prepare to be flexible if there are conflicts between your terms, but don't feel pressured to compromise your payment security.
- Ask the client if they can pay you up front, either in full or partially.
- If you can't collect payment upfront, you should always invoice the client immediately after delivering the audio files.
- Avoid delivering ready-to-use samples without some sort of payment or agreement.
- Put a due date on the invoice and ask them to confirm they've received it.
- Use a more secure payment system such as PayPal.
