I do video post by the hour, and work according to directions from clients. My terms are payment upon receipt.
I submitted an invoice for $3500.
Client: I have
only $3000 budgeted. Can you help me out?
Me: OK, I’ll discount this job for your budget, but on the next job where you make a windfall because I did the work for less than you budgeted, I expect a bonus up to $500.
Then he took 60 days to pay the discounted invoice.
