As noted on my rates & services page, I generate editing price quotes on a job-by-job basis, and will tell you the exact cost before I start work on your document. If the job includes consulting ($60-100/hour, depending on the task), I will add the consulting fee to your invoice once I know the total time. The following payment schedule policies apply to all transactions, unless we have made other specific arrangements. If you expect payment to take longer than seven days (e.g. if you are using department funding or grant money), please start the process early. I would be glad to supply an official estimate for your files.
- For jobs under $200, payment is due in full once we have agreed on a price and deadline.
- For jobs between $200 and $500, a 20% down payment is due when we agree on a price and a deadline, and the balance is due seven days after I return the edited document to you.
- For jobs over $500, 30% is due when we agree on a price and a deadline, another 30% is due when the project is halfway done (I’ll send you the edited portions), and the balance is due seven days after I return the edited manuscript to you.
- If I have not received your payment (or confirmation that the invoice has been processed) within seven days, I will send you a revised invoice with a 10% additional late fee per week.
