VAs work remotely and you communicate with their via online channels like Skype, Google Meet, Zoom, Email etc.
Temps provide on site support and can either work at your work premises or home and they are available for face to face meetings.
What about payment?
Payment with your VA is generally done at the end of the month or at the completion of a job/assignment when an invoice is provided.
