    This is my first time posting here.

    WHO: conjurecakes
    WHERE: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/conjurecakes
    WHAT: digital commission
    WHEN: December 2011.

    I accepted the commission in December, sent her my paypal, then she said she could only pay with cash or money order. I said money order was fine, and went ahead and did the commission since I trusted that she would send it soon, as she said she would (my mistake for trusting her). I remind her a time or two, then email her the commission later that month. I tried to email her in March, but it wouldn't go through. I noted her my new address in March. Still nothing. I send another reminder in April. She said she has the money ready to send, but instead sends me some gifts, then says she bought more stuff for me. She messages me again in July, asking me if I want more gifts, at which point I start simultaneously worrying that she might be thinking of the gifts as payment, and feeling guilty for still asking her for the commission payment after the gifts she sent without warning.

    Her and I were acquaintances, which is my reason for speaking with her in a less professional/obviously frustrated tone than I normally would, but I realize it's not an excuse. I had heard nothing from her unless I asked the status of the payment, which was frustrating because I hate having to send reminders.

    This is the first time I've done art prior to receiving payment, but I won't be making exceptions to my TOS for acquaintances/friends any longer. So no need to warn me about that; I've learned my lesson.
