By purchasing my art services, you automatically agree to the following conditions.
Please read this entirely and carefully. I will deny your project if you do not agree to these terms.
If you have any questions, please email me at josephmchrist@yahoo.com

PAYMENT

• All payment should be in USD. Via paypal.

• All payment should be made through invoice method. I will invoice you. DO NOT send me any payment, it will be refunded.

• Payment is due in full up front for any commission equal to or below $100 USD. (Upfront Fee in contract)

   For amounts greater than $100 USD, payment plans are available depend on the price and your circumstances, but an initial payment of 40$ will be required.

I do not accept payment from shared paypal accounts. (If you are a minor/use your parent's that is one thing, I do not however accept payments from people who share a paypal with several people, other clients/boyfriends/random strangers.)

• Once I start your commission, I cannot refund you the full amount. This is negotiable depending on individual details. Because of paypal fees, taxes and transfer fees, I can only refund %80 if by client's fault. If I cancel a project however I will reimburse the lost fees and refund %100.

• Do not base your expected price for any project on past projects with other clients. Every client and project is different, and in many cases, discounts have been given, or gratuities have been added. Discuss payment size, time-frame and more with me individually for each project.

• All prices are negotiable. Please contact me to discuss, as each project and client is different.
