You will have chosen a payment plan that suits your needs when you bought your website design package.
An invoice will be sent to you 7 days before it's due date for payment. Reminders will be sent at 7 days and 10 days.
I will then get in touch with you to see how I can support you to complete your payments, whether that means adjusting your payment plan or delaying due dates. Note that significant delays in payment may result in work ceasing on your account until payment is received.
I want you to know I’m here for you, and as long as you let me know how I can help you, I’m happy to work with you to make sure this process is smooth and stress-free.
You can review your payment plan or change your preferred payment method at any time using the links in the invoice or receipt emails you’ve received from Stripe.

Other things you might have to give me access to (check with me to confirm if unsure!):
I’m pleased to recommend a handful of trusted suppliers for a number of different services you may need now and into the future. I may receive a small commission if you make a purchase using one of these links, though that comes at no extra cost to you. I only recommend services I personally use or have used when working with other clients!
I personally use and recommend Siteground. Their backend is extremely easy to use and intuitive and their support is incredibly helpful.
While I personally use WordPress, Squarespace is a great platform for small businesses to use if they require a simple interface with limited functionality.
Growing and maintaining an email list is a great way to build relationships with your audience.
You have up to 10 premium stock images included in your website design package. For any others you may need, I recommend the following services.
Appsumo is a great resources for beta software and new apps at bargain prices. I often buy technology from this marketplace, including my calendar booking system.
I love to learn, and can attribute a huge amount of my business and design knowledge to these learning platforms.
