I'm sorry i need to say that i think the idea of developing something and then getting paid really i'snt a good one, whilst luckily for you, you haven't been screwed it it may happen to you and others in the future, just imagine spending weeks coding your ass off just for the client to turn around and say 'well actually mate, we have changed our mind we don't want it in PHP we want in Ruby and got a new dev working on it' just imagine the frustration and as Village Idiot said, more often then not you are left with a completely useless script thats half finished and has no market worth, although i do understand what your saying that a client needs to see it before he/she pays, it works great for cars but not programming unfortunately, i suppose thats why keeping the client informed throughout the build might be a good substitute.
Any client who is not willing to pay an upfront isn't worth working with.
couldn't agree more mate.
Anyway i'm not having a go, do business how you wish its not my place to tell you otherwise, i'm just saying that i don't really agree.
