Terms, Pricing etc
osCommerce Website Developers based in Brooklyn New York. We are experts in all aspects of osCommerce including design, Add Ons and custom code development.
We quote fixed price for all work based on the scope of the work to be done and the skill set required to do it.
Our rates are:
- Graphic Design, Programming, Testing $75 an hour
- Analysis and User Interface Design $90 an hour
- Consulting (Business Planning, SEO/SEM) $125 an hour
- Project Management $125 an hour
We always recommend you get a fixed price quote rather than simply comparing rates.
Where it is not possible to quote a fixed price due to the investigative nature of the work, we quote a Time & Materials with a ceiling limit. If we can complete the work within the limit we will. If not then, before the end of the limit, we will advise you of the status and recommend to you what, if anything, can be done next.
Support work is paid 100% up front.
Payment is acccepted via PayPal. We send Money Requests as our quote. Payment of the Money Request is acceptance of our quote. Your receipt is the PayPal payment record.
Large support jobs are treated as Projects.
When working on projects such as a new site or a site redevelopment, payment terms are as follows:
- 50% non-refundable deposit
- 25% on handover to user acceptance testing
- 25% prior to loading to your server or one month after handover for user acceptance testing, whichever is the earlier.
Any changes to scope will be costed at the time and factored into the payment schedule. Any changes post hand over for user acceptance are paid for up front. Once payment is made, it is not refundable.
Payment is acccepted via PayPal or by check.
Any consulting work is paid for in advance. In the event that you decide to cancel the work once it has commenced then no refunds will be provided.
We do not prepare formal contracts. Our quote plus these terms constitute the contact which is effected on your acceptance and/or payment of a deposit. In the event you wish to terminate contracted work then no monies will be refunded and payment for any work in progress will be required.
