Receiving payment for a job
You are in complete control of your customers and their payments. After you are hired by a customer you will work directly with them to figure how and when you are to be paid.
Keep in mind, we do not take a commission or charge any subscription fees and customers pay you directly.
Tips for receiving payment
Here is a list of things you can and should do to make sure you do not run into any issues:
- Require payment upfront whenever possible. Else, consider requiring a deposit at the beginning of a job. If you do, be sure to set a clear refund policy
- If it's a bigger job, be sure to write out a contract before the work starts.
- Clearly establish any/all of your policies with new customers before you complete the job.
- Keep in touch with your customer regarding their needs and expectations to ensure there is no miscommunication.
- Keep all your receipts. You don't necessarily need to share your receipts with the customer, but you may need them later to record your expenses or for taxes.
- Be clear and upfront about any extra costs that come up or could come up. This will help avoid price disagreements.
- If you accept payment by check, it's best to wait and make sure the check clears before starting or completing work.
