    So im doing this service, and give people quality for there money, and I have this guy that have been with me for awhile, now he allways pays late and stay away for a few weeks and then come back.
    Now he have not payd me for some weeks and im thinking of putting him here in the shitlist, but also maybe I can give him a few days more before I do this.
    Is it ok to deindex a client who dont pays? or should I just leave him and move on? I have several clients that pays more them him so working with him just cost me more time then it pays of. but money is money... any suggestions how to treat people who dont pay???

    I just block them and usually if they're on a certain forum i met them from i will make a thread on them to warn other people.

    I know what it feels like when people dont pay you. Its shit

    I never do business via BHW or another places. But at my company's works if a client doesn't pay I simply shut down their websites or hosting accounts following the statements at the agreements made with the client.

    Also I never give the source codes or else to the customer unless they finish the payments routine.

    I would be glad to help you but I do not find it correct to share the agreements for two reasons.

    1. I m not supposed to be selling anything here I think without the permission of BHW forums.
    2. The agreements vary as locations and rules and regulations change on each country and also customer.

    If I think a customer is not trustable then I add some more chapters to the agreement and so on. With the help of a trustable lawyer of course.

    I definitely advise you to go ahead to a lawyer who knows this business well and get the agreement templates from him. It will be surely better...

    The correct thing to do is to fire him today. People do what they can get away with and if you let him do this now, he will repeat it again and again and again. Is his money really worth the mental stress he's causing you? Take back the time you're investing on him and use it to better service those costumers who spend the most and behave properly.

    I would get rid of this client and move on.

    Just because he is not professional in dealing with you
    don't sabotage your own business by trying to get revenge
    on him. It's not worth it.

    If you got him to number one ranking , you can do it with
    another client.
