Very true, there are till one or two persons the business owner would sell credit for, because they are very sure of getting their money back no matter what. Like where my mom usually buys provisions from. There are times we dont pay instantly, maybe because of network to transfer the funds or something, the shop owner does not disturb or complain, cause she knows we always pay and we have never kept her money.
You understood how it works. Business clause are for customers who are new to the business, customers that are not regular or customers that cannot be trusted with the business money.

Things gets ugly and frustrating, when you don't receive payment after a service. I was told of a writer who finished his work beautifully and delivered it to the client on time, but what did this writer get in return? No pay. He kept on disturbing the client for donkey years to no avail. Hence, if you were that writer how would you get your payment?
That is truly frustrating and disappointing experience. I think you report your problem to the authorities. You can still chase the person and file a case in court. The problem is if he is nowhere to be found.

Why the client refuse to pay, is there any complain about the work or product? If there is no complain, then keep worry him/her to pay your money. If he's still not pay leave him if money no much and gain experience. But if the money much you should arrest him.
I think like you said , we first need to know the exact reason behind the customer negligence to payment for the product bought, what happened to the products, I the product fake or expired before we can take any action,

When a client refuses to pay you for a service you rendered, the best you can do is blacklist him. Never do a service with him no matter what.
Bad clients are a problem and you must cut off any connection you have with them.
One of the things i have discovered about bad debtors is that you should not give them products anymore to avoid accumulation of bad debt,while you use persuasive method to see how you can recover your money back.

There is no better ways in handling such customers. Even as at that moment they are no longer my customers. Because they don't mean well for your business to grow.

You can ask your lawyer to charge them to court for failing to pay for the goods or services at the stipulated time. There is no law that prevents a customer from paying for service on time.

But that is so not fair at all for people to do. Some people are just actually been very wicked and cruel. If it were a free-lance platform, you should report them to the admin

That lawyer is the last recourse when it comes to collecting bad debts (customers that refuse to pay for a long time). But getting a lawyer involves lawyer fees so you need to think it over before you go to that step. If the amount you are collecting is not substantial enough then it is better to just forget it for your peace of mind.

People that refuses to pay for your business ,as a business owner I think you really need to arrest such people because this will be as a lesson for others who might think of exploring your company without paying.

As a writer, I would suggest getting payment in milestones. Rather than wait till end of the month before getting paid, request payment weekly. Then for bulky projects consisting of several pages, request payment in sections, rather than at the end of the entire job.
But in this case, the guy has refused paying him for his job. How else does this writer get paid for the job he has done for this person is the question here now
