I have a question about deposits with the photographer specifically. How did you make your deposit: check, cash, other? Our photographer suggested making the deposit in cash, but I wanted to check if this is common. Thanks!Click the image to open in full size.

Ali I paid my photog via paypal. That was the only form of payment that he accepted. I don't feel comfortable giving cash. How will you get a receipt? Will he send you an e-mail confirmation stating that you paid? I would just make sure that he gives me something stating that I paid a deposit.

I sent mine a check...I would not feel comfortable with cash unless I was actually there and could get a receipt

hi ali - all of my clients pay their retainers with check, cashiers check or cc. ive never had anyone pay with cash, but ive never asked. i have my ideas as to why someone would want cash but of course i dont have all the info - may just be cause it goes in as available money right away in their bank account, who knows. maybe theyve had some bad luck with retainer checks bouncing. thats never fun!

 

i would feel comfortable paying in cash but just make sure you get a receipt the moment you hand the cash to them - in person. this is with anyone, ever. i got ripped off once by my daycare. handed the gal cash and she later claimed i never gave it to her. hope she and her hubby had a nice dinner and a movie on me sad.gif popcorn.gif

 

hth. congrats on getting that big thing checked off your list!!!

I made my deposit via paypal. How would you even do cash? Do you mean like a wire transfer?? I would do something that is traceable that will generate a receipt.

I used Paypal as well. Its probably a good idea to ask them if they will accept another form of payment and suggest something like Paypal.

 

With the way the postal service runs in Mexico, the chance of an envelope with cash in it actually getting to them anyway is pretty slim.

We are meeting the photgrapher in person. It is someone who is reputable according to this forum. He gave a few options for paying including by check, but said he prefers cash. I just wanted to see if anyone else had ever paid like this before. We will probably pay by check. Thanks ladies.Click the image to open in full size.

Is it Juan? B/c if it's Juan then I would say okay. I am using Juan and he let me pay through paypal. But if I met with him in person I would have no problem giving him cash. If it's him then I'm sure he will give you a receipt if you ask.
