Some of my contracts have been Net 15 with a discount if paid then (2%), but
most are Net 30, with a percentage charged if late, up to 10%. I put that in
my contract, as others have described. And I don't turn over a final product
until the bill is paid in full. The one time that I did not hold to my "paid
in full" rule before delivery (for a "friend"), I was paid *18 months*
later.

I think there has been some excellent advice in the forum on this topic.
Take what you like and leave the rest. :-)
