Default custom orders

How do you ladies handle payment of them? I had a lady order 6 braided headbands in different color combos. I made them then contacted her to set up a time for delivery and payment, she hasn't returned my emails. It's been like 2 weeks now.

Do you collect the money first?

wow, two weeks?

It depends...if I know I have a custom order that I can re-sell, I don't get payment ahead of time.

But for others, you could ask for half upfront and the other half when the order is done.

Do you have somewhere else to sell them? I'd list them if you do, lol!

Thanks ladies, I'll be collecting 1/2 the money before I start from now on. I can put them on my myspace but I have to wait until we can get a new usb cord for our camera

I'm not sure how many times you have emailed her, if it hasn't been alot, you could try one more time to let her know that you understand sometimes issues come up that prevent one from completing the sale. Then nicely say you'll put her "to-die-for-you-don't-know-what-you're-missing" headbands up for some other lucky lady to buy if you don't hear from her by (give a date) Let her know you appreciate her trust in you to provide her with a custom quality product and hope you can be of service to her in the future. Above all, be nice! It will pay off in the long run.

And remember, ladies, whatever you put in print (that means here and in email etc.) can come back to haunt you, lol!

I get a check for the whole amount but do not cash it until the order is done and I have heard back from them

If I do not know the person, I'd ask for full payment up front (I do this on Etsy and have never had anyone resist).

If I know them, I'd ask for half for "supplies", then if they don't follow through, I'd atleast have half payment!
