So reading that it pretty much sounds like you take your pick of what suits the project or your financial state at the time...

Thanks for that. This first Client I have right now just agreed to pay 20% upfront and I see the rest when it's complete (It's only a basic site so we agreed at 3 weeks maximum (part time - I still have a full-time job) [I'm new to this so I over estimated on time too but the price was for the product not the time spent]). I'll have to do a few jobs before I get used to estimating realistic timescales and stuff. Nice client too... has given me nothing but positive input/feedback so far. No hassles. :lol:

The UK folk can use the HSBC payment processor. It is highly secure and payments are quick. :D

When dealing with cash deposits, you can simply create some type of 'safe escrow' routine. It works great from what I know.

i would definatley do the money up front and then the rest when it's done. no offense to any person that does business, but if a person decides halfway through your project (after you've spent hours of work on it), he/she may just say "i've decided i don't really need this" and sit you sailing without ANY cash. some have concious' and won't do it, but there are some out there that would... which is why i always at least take 30% of whatever the final cost is up front, 50% when it's in the final phaze, and the remaining 20% on completion. this covers you at all times during your work, and pretty much keeps your client in the deal to the end. no one is gonna drop a project they are paying for.. but they will if they don't have any money in it ;)
