Is the problem the contract itself, or the terms?

[Aaron Cadieux] "He then lectured me about "how the business works" and what the usual wait-time is for vendor payments."

Everyone tries to bend to cash flow to their advantage. You're asking for net 14, but I have only one client who regularly pays this fast. I generally specify net 30, but some clients only pay net 45 or even net 60. Most of my clients are agencies or institutions with vendor management policies, and it's far, far easier to work within their requirements than it is to try to get them to meet mine.
