Website Evaluation Pricing
Posted 12 November 2003 - 01:43 PM
I'm just wondering how others are handling the payment process of website evaluation.
I did one a few months back for a guy in my neighbourhood, so it was simple: I wrote the report and picked up a cheque when it was delivered.
However, I'm thinking about how you handle long-distance clients.
Do you require full payment in advance, before you begin researching and writing?
Do you require a deposit to start and full payment before the report is delivered?
I don't have the capability of accepting credit cards at this time, and won't for a while.
Your thoughts are appreciated.

For long distance clients, it would be best to have some kind of contract along with full payment. That way they are protected as well as you.

(I speak from bitter experience due to my laid back attitude) But i decide that it is better to let the bad guy win now and again than waste time chasing rainbows. After all as you sow, so shall you reap!
you could always set up an online payment like paypal etc to give you the facility to use credit cards, but this again can bring problems, so if you do get payment by CC then be sure to send the items via registered proof of acceptance delivery as it is common for some unscrupulous types to order long distance then go straight to chargeback for non delivery.

My hunch was payment up front, but who knows in this world. And thanks for the PayPal tip, I might look into that.
