How do we go about if I request a plugin from a developer I have the following questions,
How do we do the exchange to ensure both our interests are met?
How do I make sure I receive what I'm paying for?
How do I know I'm not getting overcharged?
How do I transfer the money to the developer safely?
After I received the mod am I the solo owner and have stand-alone rights to it?
How do I ensure the developer doesn't publish it for free on uMods?
Any advice will be appreciated
Usually people just ask experienced and trusted developers and do not care. To know if you are not getting overcharged, just ask other developers if the price of N plugin from Y developer is ok. Because some developers can make bad code and charge 10$ for example or good code and charge 100$ for example, so in first case you can get bugs and problems and in the second one I guess you won't if you selected a good developer :p

Thank you, helps a lot and I do understand some questions are difficult to answer but just wanted to get the idea what was the normal process and how people are currently approaching this exchange of the code and cash.
With my client i do the following - we discuss the questions above, I do the job, drop a video demo, receive the money through PayPal or other system, and give the access to plugin.
