Subject: Payment terms: revised proposal
Hi Kate
Thank you for your feedback. I fully acknowledge your position.
I’d like to propose the following terms:
a) Start with delivery against payment
b) Change to payment after 30 days with the order size increased by 80 percent

Having said that, we may be able to compromise, if you could double the order size.

We’ve been trying to meet your requests as much as we can. We hope our offer will be satisfactory to you this time.

Regards
Naoya
