We request that you include a deposit of 50% of the total estimated fee when
you submit your document. (To see how to calculate our fee, visit our How
to Estimate Your Cost page.) We will respond to you with an Order Acceptance
message confirming type of service, total word count, completion
date, total fee, receipt of 50% of fee and balance due on completion.
Work on your manuscript begins when we have received a deposit equal to half
of the total fee and our Order Acceptance has been sent.
Personal checks must await bank clearing before the finished work is returned
to the client.
First-time customers - we
request prepayment of one-half of the estimated fee, with the balance due
upon completion of our work. If your project is divided into clearly
distinct parts (e.g., chapters or issues), you can usually pay part-by-part,
as each is completed.
Established customers and businesses
- we can invoice you upon
completion of your project or each distinct part of your project. Payment is
due within 5 days of receipt of invoice.
Reduced Rate for Up Front Payment - To encourage full payments
upfront American Proofreading
offers a 5% price discount on all payments
made in full with submission of your document.
