Paying for editorial services

I’ve tried to make this difficult part of the process as easy for you as possible and have used the following methods of payment for many, many years without problems.  Let me know, though, if you do experience any challenges.

Payment Methods

  • Payment for services can always be made by check or money order (in $US) and mailed to the-freelance-editor.  If you prefer this method of payment, contact me for details.
  • If you prefer to pay by credit card, please process your payment through this secure link at (you do not have to have a PayPal account to pay by credit card or ATM/debit card). Simply enter the amount you wish to pay (either in full or in part, as we’ve agreed) in the “item price” box; then, click the “update” link—you should now be able to make your payment.

  • Or, contact me directly to discuss other international payment options.
  • If you have accounts with First Citizens Bank (headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina; and, online at, you may transfer payments directly from your account to my business account.  If you prefer this method of payment, contact me for details.

And, thanks!

I truly appreciate your business.  But, remember, if you are really not satisfied, I do have  that 100% guarantee  for you to fall back on.  Assuming that you won’t need to take that route, I invite you instead to remember me with a shirt, a mug, or a pencil or to just show your appreciation with a note taped to your monitor (to remind you to call me again next time).

Keep writing!  That way, I can look forward to helping you again in the future—that is, most of you!  lol.

Now, back to business . . .


By the way . . .

You may not have known that the-freelance-editor occasionally takes on clients who rightfully deserve editorial services but cannot afford to pay for as much work as they need.  I also sponsor editorial interns as I can.  If you would like to help underwrite or support either of these causes, I invite you to contribute what you can with the link below:

We’ll  all  thank you as your funds are used. Thank you.
