This is a common question which comes up here on the forums. I thought I might start a thread so that some of the newbies could learn what to expect from clients who are non-payers.
I define non-payers as those who are:
- slow to pay
- pay partially
- try to change the payment plan midway despite a clearly defined contract payment plan
- those who do not pay at all
While I wish that we could have clients who abide by the payment terms in the contract, there will be clients that will become problem payers.
I'd like to hear from some of the seasoned VAs...how have you handled non-payers and what advice could you give to new VAs just starting out?
