Hi again everyone… Again I would like to thank everyone who gave
me such good advice regarding accepting credit cards in my store
that is opening on Saturday.
I have a pressing question or two about pricing commissioned work…
or rather… How much deposit / down payment does one take from a
client, and how much of that is refundable if they cancel their
order and you have gotten stock in especially for that order?
I have a gentleman who has contacted me for a commissioned piece /s.
He is coming on Saturday to discuss his needs with me, and I sort of
need to know what is and is not acceptable in regards to this
question. I know what my hourly rate is and I have jewelry pricing
software, it is just the other aspects that I have previously
mentioned that I need help with.
Could you more seasoned veterans out there, help a little. In New
Zealand, I had no problems with this as most commissioned work was
done for friends, or friends of friends… But here it is a totally
different ball game as it is from my shop.
Btw… I want to say a big hi to Brian Adams who was such a help to
me some years back and helped me over come my fear of soldering
work… Cheers Brian! I often think of you and your partner and your
lovely studio surrounded by the wonderful NZ bush!
Thanks in advance everyone.
