    Recently a Client contacted me for a project and payment with PayPal. I am aware of chargeback with PayPal while using CC. Anyways to stop that? How can i stop accepting payments from credit cards?? or Anyother good method to accept the payment for these kind of freelancing works?

    Since its huge amount and he is new I am afraid of chargeback and running back with that PayPal reps!

    send a paper invoice, wire transfers, or get signed up to accept ach transactions. those are your safest options.

    Because pieces of shit do that? Even if you do everything they ask, there are those clients who WILL charge back to get work done for free because it's almost impossible to fight a chargeback. Especially, if they say it's fraud.

    chargebacks for digital services are always denied by PayPal because the client can't prove that the digital 'goods' haven't been received an the provider can't prove that the good have been supplied to the client ... it's a loop. in case of a chargeback paypal will only hold your money locked but won't give it to the customer if you appeal the chargeback

    anyways as mudbutt said, the best option is to make the client sign something or give his agreement to some terms

    for example you could create smaller milestones for the work and create invoices from within paypal before delivering your work each time

    No, I lost in one latest chargerback even after delivering the work a day earlier to customer need. They will pay, money will be in my account for a week or so and then they do chargeback for some reason. Ice on cake is paypal loots $20 as chargeback fee for their specialists who never won!
