I just told mine that it was $150 WAYYYYY in advance (like, before we ordered the dresses) and told them to mail me a check. Some gave it to be before I ordered them, some after, but luckily I never had to badger them to pay me. I know it’s weird, but if you have to be the one to collect the money rather than the seamstresses, I think asking them to just send you a check directly will be the easiest thing to do.

Money issues are never fun.  rebecca is right – checks mailed directly are easiest.  If you think that may be a problem for your maids, you can either address individually, or go for a PayPal that would allow them to pay by credit card (if that works better for them and isn’t going to be too much hassle for you).

I like the idea of using Paypal, that way everything is in one place, they don’t have to mail it, etc. Can they not pay the hat maker and dressmaker directly?
