I’ve been wondering about this too [USER=111728]@Caitlin1[/USER]; though my problem is a bit different. I have some regular clients who I do chase up, but they then say “oh, can we have a bit more time? Due to X, Y, Z?” and my reasoning is I can’t get blood out of a stone, so I let them have it.
Should I, though?
I have two payment options: 50% deposit/50% on completion, or 95% up front (5% discount.) It’s been working quite well so far.
However a few clients have been stuffing me around in terms of paying, offering excuses and delaying due to “cashflow issues.”
In fact, I’ve had to take a client to court for just that reason.
My question is an add-on to Caitlin’s, (if she doesn’t mind!) – how does one avoid the reputation of being the “relaxed guy” when it comes to payment?
