Get Paid, Then Offer SERVICES

TO All The Service Providers
Get Paid, Then Offer Services

Most of the payer especially responsible staff to effect payment, eat-up lot of time of the payment receiver & slows down the flow of the system causing great deal of hindrance under one or the other reasons.

They don’t respect the natural law of give & take but expects fruits without sowing seeds & nurturing plant !! ?? Also demand Gurantee to effect payment as part of their obligation to the agreement/order but grossly ignores value of in-put of the service provider. Why??

It is high time that all service providers (major or minor) Follow the norm of providing service after receiving the payment. When service provided… it can not be either free of cost or refundable as the effort to provide service can not be un-done.

The receiver of the service must check all aspects, be convinced + Pay for its value, before receiving the service.

In worst scenario, the value of refund could be in kind (not cash) = 70 % of the order value. The balance àcost of time & effort ß that gets lost in effecting service that can not be un-done.

The Service provider & receiver both must understand & accept this system as Norms to provide/receive service.

The service provider needs to patiently wait until the buyer fully understands the service that shall be received & get paid for it, before he/she gets in to action. This can apply to employment as well.

These shall cut down lot of short-circuiting caused by devious ness of the payment effectors + shall prove it Not Working

These shall also strengthen the worthiness of the service provider & bring the best out of him/her, as there is no confusion whether they will get paid or not or half-hearted effort shall vanish.

We are living in the society where most of the buyers pay first & then receive the service , where service Provider are Institutions & receivers are individuals, like from supermarket , fast food, courier & postal, travel, passport & Visa, Health, school & collage etc..

When such institutions need our services, we need to receive the payment for it first & then provide service….. All of us need to understand & adhere to this understanding.

Even a King when he needs his hair-cut done, he needs to do all that hair dressers ask him to do first, before he can get the hair-cut/dressed. A vehicle will not reach the owner to destination if the owner promise under any agreement, to fuel after the destination is reached. àGet paid to provide serviceß is that obvious.

So please all the contractors & service providers, Please set your norms right, perfect your services, get paid & then offer your valuable services, & Please don’t let the non productive bankers earn out of your heard earn money to please those who think they are paying in advance.

Let us all make the world better/peaceful place to live.
