The client cannot hire you if the payment is not verified. You should talk to the client, understand the requirements, and if that is something doable and the clients want to hire you, they must verify the payment method. You do not have to remind them to verify the payment method.
So what I do in this case is let them know that once their payment method is verified and they issue the contract I can begin work in X amount of days.
It looks like "If you would like to proceed, I can begin work 3 business days after your payment method is verified and the contract is issued." Feel free to copy and paste )
