    mighil had a threat (now deleted I think) where he was looking for a CL poster. I replied over PM and stated my price and services. We discussed the ad on Skype.

    Here's the entire Skype log:

    So to wrap it up: I clearly stated that the price per live ad is $5, which I reinforced on Skype like this:

    He refuses to pay however and says it was just a test. It was indeed a test ... a small volume to start with to see if they would stick, however my rate is still $5 per live post as stated both on Skype and on BHW PM. Maybe it's just a misunderstanding although you can't expect a freelancer to work for free to see if a client likes him. Delivered as promised, rates unchanged so I'd like to get paid for the work delivered.

    1) I removed what appeared to be Mighil's personal info from the skype thread (full name in the skype id).

    2) mighil's post was removed because CLs posts are only allowed in the Jr VIP section.

    3) mighil has been notified he has 48 hours to respond.

    4) You two have GOT to be kidding me? You couldn't come to an agreement over $15? @mighil - Yes, it was a sample but it was clearly stated it was $5 per post that stuck. @xtopzi - You couldn't offer to take $15 off an order of 50 or more posts - or some other discount for bulk work? How much potential biz did you toss away by insisting on pushing for the $15 payment?

    No deal was closed on that $15, I was hoping to pay him if we closed a deal about a deadline, the bulk amount, the parameters and such. Paying that $15 would be useless for me since that was a sample, plus, 3 ads, who in their right mind would pay 3 ads, come on.

    From the log above:
    At no point did you ask or did he offer for any free samples - so the above statement would stand - $5 each.

    To be honest with you OS, I think it's none. From my experience, people who so firmly refuse to pay for a small order aren't likely to pay for long term projects either. All this dispite there being clear pricing and conditions. I feel like mighil just used my services to see if his ad would work and leave me doing the work unpaid, that's not acceptable. It's a clear freelance assignment where he pays me per live post, not a JV or anything alike. I prefer to 'push' the $15 payment rather than working with a defaulter. That's just my opinion.

    To update the situation: still waiting for a reply from mighil. No payments have been received yet.

    That's hasty generalization you're implementing there. I can even get 3 sticking ads in no sweat, why should I pay for that, those were clearly samples. OS, could you please bring judgement to this, it's so irrational.

    No problem... my judgment is that you owe him $15 for the reasons I posted above. You have 48 hours to make acceptable arrangements for payment. Make it happen.

    No contact attempt from mighil yet or intent to pay. Did send him a PM here too.

    Absolutely ridiculous on mighil's part. When is it ever okay to expect work to be done for free? Great ruling OS, and xtopzi thanks for ousting a non-paying loser. He had no reputation to care .. he had 40 posts and has been around for two months. Guaranteed he'll be back under another username soon.
