How to Get Paid After You Complete a Client Service

Whether you are the owner of a small business or you are an independent contractor looking to make money on your own terms without a boss breathing over your shoulder, then you know how difficult it can be to arrange for payments after rendering your client a service. The freedom that you gain from moving to a result and project-based work schedule comes with more individual responsibility to make sure that you are getting paid on time and fairly by your clients and customers. Here are a few tips and tricks that can help you get paid after you complete a client service as quickly and easily as possible for you and your clients.

Set Expectations Beforehand

The first thing that you can do to get paid after you complete a client service simply and easily is to set expectations around payment with your clients before accepting a project. While it can be exciting to get new clients start working right away, it is always best to work out a payment arrangement beforehand. All too often first-time clients can take advantage of you by never paying you for your work.

Use a Convenient Method

Another tip that will help you get paid after you complete a client service is to use a convenient method to make it easy for you and your clients. There is nothing worse than a clunky POS system or payment rendering system. You want your clients to feel safe and comfortable with rendering payment to you for your work, and a quality payment method will make that happen. EBPP lets you collect payment via the internet rather than a more traditional method. This allows you to collect payment from clients around the globe simply and easily all right from your computer.

Make Clear and Precise Invoices

The final tip that will help you to get paid after you complete a client service is to make clear and precise invoices. An invoice is basically a bill for your clients, which should summarize the services rendered and the cost associated with those services. Additionally it should detail the overall cost of your work, and any comments, notes or additional concerns that came up while working on the project. The easier to read, understand, and engage with your invoices the easier it will be for your clients to pay you on time.

Getting paid for your work is an essential step as a freelancer or business owner. But getting clients to pay you on time and effectively can be a challenge. Follow these three tips and you are setting yourself up for easier and more timely payments.
