Payment Terms and How Payments Are Handled

Pay with PayPal

Payment Options: I can accept payment via PayPal only. All payments are in USD. All invoicing is managed through PayPal.

Before commencing work on your assignment, I do require 100% of the agreed-upon total for small tasks of $100 or less. For projects totaling more than $100, I require 50% upon receipt of invoice. Before I e-mail you the edited manuscript, I will contact you for the final 50%. Once payment reaches me, I will immediately send you your manuscript.

There is a minimum charge of $50 for fiction editing or proofreading $60 for non-fiction editing or proofreading.

To secure a booking for your editing one month or more in advance, I now require a good faith, non-returnable, $50 reservation fee. This will of course be deducted from your editing invoice. This has become necessary due to a recent spate of new clients making ‘firm’ reservations then disappearing, never to be heard from again.

**Important Note: If you do not have a PayPal account: You can still use a credit card and proceed with PayPal payment, just as safely as if you had an account.

Payments made from outside of the USA will incur an additional 4% fee to cover a portion of the international surcharge from PayPal.
