I'm having a problem getting paid from a client, but there's a twist. I get jobs from this client through on online referral service. The clients are supposed to be vetted. I've done about 5 jobs for this client and have had issues before but did get paid. They pay net 45 and are now almost 2 weeks past due on an invoice. I did a job for them last week and have been holding on to the work until the previous invoice is paid. The client is now saying they need the work ASAP, I'm saying I need to get the old invoice cleared up and paid before I release the current job. Also, the client is in Florida, I'm in Maryland.
I'm thinking of going to the referral company to see if anyone else has had issues with them. Any advice?? I should probably just get BZ to pay them a visit, bet they don't get lippy wit him!!
