Good Day Collegues,
I responded to a request for translation recently that I would like to share.

In my standard price quote I include payment methods accepted and payment due dates (among other items). In my experience among business owners and professionals of all industries, this is simply standard practise.

To my surprise, in a inadvertantly included email to his colleague at the bottom of the conversation in reply to my quote, I read that including such was an "odd item to include in a quote" and to let me know they did not pay using the forms I specified.

He did not specify what payment types they do use.

Any thoughts? What is odd about including payment methods and due dates in a quote that, if confirmed, is binding?

Why don't you just ask them?
Remember, you own a business, you are not their employee!
