It seems that everyone wants to be paid first then give the service but then guess what happens. Life gets in the way and they have nothing but excuses why they didnt provide on time. Even then they will sometimes provide you with crap.
This has happened to me more than once here on WF and then you have to go thru filing a claim with PayPal and then play the waiting game.
I beleive that there should be a 50% payment at the start to show good faith and then when you are happy with the work pay the balance and even pay extra if you feel it is warranted.
When someone already has your money in full then it is too easy for them to not meet the deadline. If they dont have all the money then they have incentive to complete and with quality.
Am I the only one that feels this strong on this issue?
