So Fall of 2007 went well as far as me receiving payment "on time" was concerned. I was always paid within 2 weeks and things were good. This spring...... actually screw all this, too lazy to type. How do you all ensure you receive your payments from your customers in a timely manner? At one point in time this spring I had $4,200 of invoices I was waiting to collect on. Found out today that 2 DVDs and a $900 invoice never made it to the client (mailed 2.5 weeks ago), so that is at minimum another 3 weeks I'll be waiting for that $900. Still waiting on ~ $2000 from my largest most dependable client. I've read that some photographers write in a clause something along the lines of "receive a 10% discount if paid within 2 weeks)... which is just a positive way of saying "you won't be charged an extra 10% if you pay me within 2 weeks". I've got bills to pay nugga. I need my monies.
