The Reedsy system allows you to customize your payment schedule, depending on how you want to structure your payments.

If you’d like to charge a flat fee for the project, just set a date and the full amount as you’re putting together your quote. Add an upfront payment by selecting the percentage you’d like to be paid upfront. Then if you need to split the payment up into installments, just select how many you would like. This will break down the remaining amount into equal parts and stagger them so that the last payment is due on the project deadline.

Submit your quote

You can also quote an hourly rate, if you prefer. We recommend stating your rate in the quote and giving a rough estimate of how many hours you think it will take to complete the project. Then you can work out what the advanced payment can be so that you are able to start the collaboration. We suggest a value between 20–40% of the total fee.
