Payment?

How do you go about getting payment from people for retouching. Do you set up a paypal account or something along those lines?

I'm just about to start charging, nothing huge, just small time, but I don't know how to securely and safely receive payment in a timely manner before I give them the full res file.

Re: Payment?

If you're working with first world people, you can trust they will pay. Surely, first world people pay, so send those high-res without fear.
I personally use PayPal, but I started by using Western Union, but their fees are ridiculous, also PayPal fees are high, but not so much as like the WU ones. By the way, if you're attempting to use PayPal, make sure your client always loads in USD, otherwhise, you will be charged for the currency change a 2,4% or so. Also, for receiving money you're charged 3,9%

Re: Payment?

Is there any sort of certain type of account I should set up. I just don't it to be confusing for people.

Like they click on the link and it brings them to the page where they just enter their card number and amount they are charged, and then I can confirm and send them photos.

I don't get your question, but in PayPal, you will receive an e-mail when the deposit is done (it's usually instant). I don't know how it works from the buyer side, since I only receive. Almost every person in the world have a PayPal account, so it wouldn't be confusing for the buyers.
