I wanted to hire a web designer recently. He wanted to charge the full amount up front. I did not hire him. It seems that a person should only need to pay a certain amount up front and then the rest when the job is approved. Do you charge up front?
I charge clients 50% at the start of the job. When I am done, the client can approve work or request a revision. Upon approval, they pay the other 50%.
Same as here, i charge my clients upto 40-50% in the beggining. Rest in the last when the whole work is done.
Charging in up front is actually bad for a seller. It will decrease its repu infront of the buyer. Even in real life when we do something either we charge half at the start or charge full in the end. Not in the beginning.
