Expert:  Manal Elkhoshkhany replied 5 years ago.

Hello payables

 

You must have picked $20 instead of $15, I have answered the questions based on the amount offered (The $20).

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Ok...I am willing to pay $20. And you should know that i appreciate your help and your prompt feedback. Thank you...

Expert:  Manal Elkhoshkhany replied 5 years ago.

Payables, I do not mind accepting $15 for the question. What I meant to tell you is that experts answer questions based on the amount offered, so when you post a new question, I would be willing to answer it for $5 less (so if you intend to offer $15 on your next post, just address the post to me and I will answer it for $10.

 

Thank you for your kind words :)

 

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
