Hi Folks, late to the party. The time has come to have the awkward conversation with my clients and tell them that I need to retake the payment for their hosting or move their website to their own Webflow account. Trying to weigh up my options…
Option 1 moving clients to their own Webflow account.
My client sites have a lot of custom code, migrating clients to their own Webflow account will mean the client pays for a Webflow account subscription + hosting practically doubling their annual fee… hard sell eh.
Option 2 set up a recurring paying in bonsai
Correct me if I wrong but this essentially means we take the hosting payment and then invoice the client directly, exactly how hosting was paid in the pre client billing days? Or is there a way this is automated between Bonsai and Webflow?
I don’t mind invoicing new clients, but others have paid for hosting a few months back and now I have to ask them for another payment… makes me look super unprofessional.
Webflow was built with the support of freelancers, and this feels like a kick in the balls really!
How are other freelancers handling this?
