Each work is treated according its nature and handicap. As guideline, the way I use to work as freelancer consists into:
1. To Talk in detail about the job until have everything set and clear. Communication is essential in order to have success in any work prior to get started.
2. Fixed prices per milestones are preferred (assuming the visible work only), except when a job forcefully implies to quote per hours, and when the employer prefers, or requires to pay worked hours only.
3. Both ways, fixed and per hour can be combined if the work requires different skills and detailed steps in order to be completed.
- For fixed prices, 50% of the estimated cost per each job to be performed will be asked in advance, safely kept in the escrow of this site, and the other 50% once the work has been finished, delivered and invoiced. For hourly jobs, a minimal of 3 hours will be asked in advance, unless the work clearly shows itself as able to be done in less time.
