Specifics

When to Pay

I usually don't start working until receipt of payment, so payment within roughly three days to two weeks of us agreeing to work together (depending on the estimated turnaround) is ideal.

For certain cases, I am flexible on payment structure, so don't hesitate to get in touch.

Payment Methods

Below are the usual methods, but you can ask me about paying some other way.

PayPal

You don't need to have money in your PayPal account to use it. Simply link it to your card or bank account.

Money Order or Check

For large projects with turnarounds that can accommodate mailing time, I prefer payment via check/money order over PayPal so I can avoid PayPal fees.

Venmo and Zelle

For large and small projects, I accept payment via Venmo and Zelle too.


→ All payments must be made in US currency (USD).



Sample



I love the sample edit. I've received three sample edits so far, and this is by far the best! Thank you for everything. I can't wait to do business with you.
