Freelancers typically get paid by the project or hourly. For project-based work, you and the client will agree on a price upfront. Once the project is completed, you’ll submit an invoice to the client and they will pay you according to the agreed-upon price. For hourly work, you’ll track your hours worked and submit an invoice to the client at the end of each week or month. The client will then pay you for the number of hours you worked at the agreed-upon rate.
It’s also important to be aware of payment terms when working with clients. These should be clearly stated in your contract so that there is no confusion about when or how you will be paid. Late payments are unfortunately common in the freelancing world, so it’s important to be proactive about setting up clear payment terms and following up with clients if payments are delayed.
Payments can be withdrawable in different ways, depending on the client’s preference. The most common method is via PayPal, but some clients may also request bank transfers, Payoneer or direct deposits. Be sure to discuss the payment method with the client before starting work to avoid any confusion later on.
