ASAP payment usually works best ;)
I have been a: "Student", "Writer," and "Essay Company Rep." I'm posting here to promote reason, seek the truth, and do research.

A bi-monthly system. It is the best maybe a little biased.

I saw an advertisement from a custom writing service a few years back (I did not apply) that paid its writers by PayPal after every order. I like that system.

Due to a variety of reasons, my payments process at all different times. If anyone actually makes their living as a freelancer of any sort, budgeting and saving have got to be part of their discipline. When payments process shouldn't really matter to much, as long as it actually gets processed (and of course, a six-month timeline or something like that would be ridiculous).

You have to be careful about terminology too: bimonthly can mean getting paid every two months (ugh!) but semimonthly specifically means twice a month.

It not only can mean that, it does mean that. Anyone who uses it to mean anything else is using it incorrectly.

I agree, but there is some debate over this.

Really? Where is the debate? "Semimonthly" means "half-monthly" (therefore twice a month), and "bimonthly" means "two monthly" (or once every two months). This is etymology, not a subjective interpretation of meaning.

As someone in the comments section of that article quickly pointed out, the use of "bimonthly" to mean "twice a month" has no etymological basis whatsoever and is the result of modern grammarians deciding that a frequent incorrect usage warrants a change in definition. It's like the fact that "literally" can now be defined as "Used to acknowledge that something is not literally true but is used for emphasis or to express strong feeling." It's bullshit arising from laziness and inaccuracy.

Payment the next instant is unparalleled! But twice a month shoud work fine as well.
