Just have a quick question. Assuming you have set up a meeting with a potential client, you have agreed on price and the client wants to move to the next step.
How do you accept payment for the intial order (eg. $500) and set up the recurring billing for hosting ect (eg. $30 per month)
I assumed that you leave the meeting, and draw up an invoice which you send to the client within a few hours of the meeting?
I dont want to start accepting payment via paypal (as it looks amateur and paypal take fees) and want to bill the client like a proper agency would...
Also what sort of payment terms did you guys use when you started out. All up front? (obviously excluding the recurring billing), 50% before the job and 50% after, or a 30 day credit period..??
Look forward to your replies, thank you ever so much in advance.
