Payment Terms
If the project is small (less than $1000,) payment is due after the delivery of service.

If the project is more than $1000 worth, we set weekly milestone with payment. For every milestone completed, a certain portion is paid until it is fully paid by the end of the project.

For hourly projects, we go by Elance terms. Payment is expected within 7 days after the time sheet has been submitted. If payment is not received 2 weeks from the date the time sheet was sent to the client, we STOP working until the client takes care of ALL overdue invoices and make sure that his account is current and in good standing. It is only then that we resume working.

Terms can be flexible based on specific project requirements and needs (upon approval.)
