Getting a deposit on a job is as sure a sign as any that the job is won and you can get underway. Joist makes it easy to request a deposit on your estimates and invoices so your client always knows exactly how much is needed to get the project moving.

And with Joist Payments enabled, the client can pay that deposit right away on their end. In most cases that means you can have the funds in your bank account in just a couple of business days.
