Hi to all!
This is my first message here in Proz. The thing is that I don't know how you people manage to get your quotations, terms and conditions accepted by the customer. Is it possible to do that by simple e-mail communication?
I had thought to send my customer the proper quotation by email, and then he would only need to reply my message accepting the terms with a "yes, I accept quotation number XXXX from Cristobal". Maybe it doesn't have any kind of legal validation in case of non-payment... What do you think? What do you normally do?

For new customer you should aks for a PO with all terms of the job at hand (text amount, rate, delivery date, payment).
This is standard practice. Without a PO (usually pdf or fax) you shouldn't start working, except with old customers, where normal email-communication is sufficient.

I've found a lot of valuable information. I didn't know where to begin.
