Once you’re introduced to a client, you’ll work directly with them to finalize all the details of the project, including payment. StarOfService never takes a cut from the payment you receive from the client.
Here are some tips and best practices to receive payment for your hard work:
- Write out a contract before the project begins. This sets expectations for both the work to be done and payment to make sure you’re both on the same page.
- Keep all the receipts when purchasing supplies for the customer. Whether or not you share these with the customer, receipts can help you document your expenses later on.
- Consider requiring a deposit at the beginning of the work (and set a clear refund policy).
- Check in often with the customer throughout the project. You can send photos, email or text updates. Let the customer know of any additional or unexpected costs—this can help avoid any disagreements on price later on (and help you earn a great review for the project!)
