Pays the fee in full upfront before any work begins. It's straightforward and eliminates the need for ongoing payments.
The fee is divided into two payments – typically, one upfront before work starts and the second when the editing is completed. This can help clients manage the cost while providing the editor with some compensation during the editing process.
Similar to the two-part payment, but the fee is divided into three payments – upfront, midway through the editing process, and upon completion. This option spreads the cost over a longer period.
Pay Per Chapter
Under this approach, rather than providing an editor with a consolidated sum for the entire manuscript, the client pays for editing services on a chapter-by-chapter basis. **The client pays for each chapter's editing services before the editing work on that chapter begins.**
