    Default warning

    Many companies are looking for services to be done in DR. Specialy from US.
    But it looks to me the way they pay for services received is same as Dominicans will pay. Pay late or never.
    i was stupid enough to do some instalations in Wendys restaurants ( new cleaning equipment) in April to be partialy paid after 4 months and to be hasseled for the rest.
    they lost invoices they said.
    My mistake was not to demand and take cash payment in front.
    now it is coming to the point that I need to demand payment from Wendys which again will take time.
    So when you read some job offers by international company for job done in DR make sure you take your money on time. Other wise you will listen to the same garbage you get from dominicans when they need to pay.
    Tomorow i will publish name and replies from this reputable company that is avoding paying bills.

    Is this the first time having this problem? How long have you been doing business in the DR?

    What can I say, thousands of businesses are "doing business" in the DR, successfully and profitably. It's like anything, you need to know what your getting into. It's no different here to many other countries...

    Robert is correct you need to know what you are getting into.
    I also wonder about the posting names and replies, could border on liable, but who knows maybe not in the DR. Wonder what Fabio G. would think of it.

    I was thinking exactly that Wud. Sometimes airing your dirty laundry in public is not the best solution.

    "learning never to repeat same mistake"
    I'm sure this experience has made you a better business man?

    Default Notorious for NOT paying their bills

    Dominicans and especially wealthy ones do not or will use every possible method to delay or not pay their bills. I know of several people that are owed monies by very rich people and have to beg every month for a relatively small debt. They get paid little by little. (Sometimes three consecutive trips or visits) to get a partial payment on a total amount of a few thousand pesos. The richer they are the harder to collect. Ehhh, maybe that's how they got rich.

    This guy seems to have the biggest beef against himself and not the person or company that owes the money. I wouldnt set it up so that I am not ahead in the payment. If I did it would be shame on me. I am sorry you are having a hard time getting paid but that is what you get for trusting someone you don't know.

    Rule #1: Get 100% upfront until the client has established a good payment history etc etc. Yes, we have been bitten at DR1.

    Talk to anyone who lives in a condo complex about the failure of Dominican owners to pay maintenance fees, etc. This is a very, very common problem.
