Should I take 100% advance payment ?
Earlier in India ,there was a trend of accepting an upfront payment by the voice talents ,voice artist used to take some percentage of the total cost of the assignment as an upfront payment and balance amount ,after delivery of the audio files. But now time has changed.
Now, we call it 100% advance payment ,Yes ! It saves lots of time and let us focus on accepting new voice over assignments.In the past ;we used to put our all attention in collecting balance payments from the clients ,the problem is not all voice artistes take the advance fees/payment from their clients that makes payment structure of our market inconsistent.
If all voice talents work on the basis of full upfront payment criteria then this market will become uniform in terms of payment provisions.
