Though each project is unique, here are a few guidelines to the payment process.
First Time Customers
With first time customers, I require half of the negotiated price upfront. When the project is completed I will send the final masters via an FTP or physical medium after receiving the remaining amount owed.
For full length albums or EP's I will give a estimated project price in dollars and estimated project duration in months. We will then take the project price and split it over the project duration. Client will owe calculated amount each month of project term. We can also do a pay as you go option where you 'buy' a certain amount of hours each month.
Returning clients can pay as you go and for larger projects can negotiate a lower upfront deposit
