You'll need to first invoice your clients.

How you’ll invoice will depend on whether you’re charging based on time & materials or a fixed fee based on milestones. You’ll need to agree this upfront with your employer/client, however you would typically invoice time & materials at agreed upon intervals - weekly, fortnightly or monthly. For fixed-fee work you’d generally invoice at agreed upon milestones, based on your completion.

Having a variety of payment methods available for employers to pay you will also increase your chances of timely payment after you invoice. While a bank deposit is standard form of payment, it is often quicker and easier for employers to pay you via credit card. Services like PayPal & Stripe offer cost effective ways to accept credit cards. The more flexibility you offer, the greater your chances of securing work.
