What do you think is the safest way for freelancers to get paid?
Credit Cards/PayPal have that whole ugly chargeback. As an online freelancer, you can’t really accept check or cash and cryptocurrency hasn’t really caught on with the public.
I read an article where a guy did a chargeback on an airline. The airline sent a collection agency after him for the money.
Apparently, the flight was delayed several hours for some reason and although he did fly, he felt that the airline owed him for missing whatever event he had lined up in New York. The airline proved to the collection agency that the customer received the service and therefore by doing a chargeback, it was, in fact, a “theft of service received.”
I had no idea that, at least in the USA, you can have the collection agency go after you for a chargeback if you can prove the receiver or client did indeed take or receive a product/service.
How do you feel about this? Do you think that Fiverr and other freelancing agency should implement this type of aggressiveness for those people who do chargebacks? You may not know what the client’s real name is but, Fiverr does, because the chargeback would show up at their end.
