Dear all,

How do we softly request money from our submitted project.

I submit my project already and the payment date is 10 days after completion. When the deal had come, I mail to the client to asked about the payment and he said he will make bank tranfer on oct24

On Oct 23, the send me some comment from proofreader and I return in the same day and wait 2-3 days before sent mail asked if he'd received my file.

He reply that he've received my file already, but he didn't mentioned anything about the payment or anything else. I quite sure that no error in this project.

P.S. Sorry for my grammar, this is the reason why I do translation in English-Thai only not Thai-English.

Softly? Oct 31, 2007

It's not a time to be soft any more. Start getting tough.

couldn't agree more with henry.
btw, i just would like to know whether you have sent them invoice for the project. it usually take around 30 days after the po issuance for the payment to be effective.
if you have done this and all else failed, you can always comment/complaint on their blueboard page.

raising your tone - gradually Nov 6, 2007

My suggestion would be being polite first, then gradually getting tougher if your client still fails to pay.
