QuestionTo all the freelancers out there Pin

I've received a mail from a possible customer from Switzerland.

That customer is somebody that wants me to train him in the use of a specific software.

I am not from Switzerland.

How do you bill the job to a new customer that is from a different country?

A) 100% at the beginning?
B) Given you don't know the specific amount you ask for a certain amount that cover a specific number of working hours?
C) Sending the bill after the work is done and pray?
D) Other. Please explain.

I've worked for different countries before... no problems for that, but with people I know... In that case I usually ask for a percent at the beginning and the final part at the end, or I simply get some money at the end of the next month...
In that case I probably would go for the B option, but... is there any other option you are using or any other one that you prefer?

Thank you all in advance!
