Not long after I'm made aware that they are close to bankruptcy and I put the commission on hold so they can get back on their feet. I liked the person and didn't want to see them put themselves in a hole in order to pay me. Yes, I know that's not my choice to make but I figured if they are unable to pay the full price at the time I would hold until they could. During that time I had sent them a pair of video goggles worth about $150.
I am now faced with wondering what I should do. I know this person will not be able to pay for this commission in full for a very long time if ever. Another commissioner made mention that, since I had given them the goggles that were worth equal to what they had paid me, at that time, the transaction was good and I don't need to worry about it any more. I know this person originally came to me to commission me for a mask but what do you do with a person who you know cannot pay? I've looked at both sides and find myself in the middle going in circles.. Help?
