As an online business, when you have delivered your services and are ready to be paid for your hard work, sending your invoice is the first step (and one that should never be missed).
Running an online business 101: always send an invoice
Even if a brand, agency or platform says you don't need to, know it's important to send an invoice if you provide a service. Make sure to include all the details like issuing date, contact info, description of the campaign, payee details, payment terms and most importantly, your due date.

Tips for getting paid on time
Agree on payment terms: Before you start the collaboration, agree on payment terms like how you're going to be paid, when you're going to be paid, and who to invoice. Most large companies have a set number of days to process your payment (30, 45, or even 60 days). Ensure you check this before you carry out the work.
Chasing up payments: With the right approach, dealing with late payments doesn't have to be tricky. Before the invoice is due, make sure your contact received the invoice, and ask for confirmation of receipt when the invoice is sent. When you’re due to be paid, send a ‘friendly reminder’ leading up to the due date (e.g. a reminder that payment is due in 3 days).
If the invoice is overdue, follow up with details including when the payment was due and resend your invoice. It's important to stay professional and friendly in all communication, and to keep track of all correspondence.
