  • An upfront payment of around 30% is usually required.
  • It's not required when a job will take less than 1-2 days. Or when we've already worked with each other before. Or when we work via or any other freelance market which guarantees the payment but have their own fees of around 20%. Maybe you have ideas how to handle that? Run it by me.
  • For long-term jobs a discount will be given.
  • If I fail to complete your job or part of it and if it's actually doable, I return you the money for that particular job or part.
