Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I am also told that the customer wants the code of the website updated to comply with current standards.
The contact asked me to get back to them with the rates that I would charge.
I am sure I can handle the work with ease, however, I have no idea what to charge. Can someone please help me come up with some rates for this type of work?
Any help is greatly appreciated...
I don't know your level of experience or target industry or what's involved in maintaining your clients' sites but your time is definately worth a dollar per hour rate and serious clients have no issue accepting paying for work completed.
-How much I want the contract/customer
-How much risk is in the contract/customer
-My own daily rates for each skill/area of work and estimates of time involved
-Competitor rates for similar work
-Discounts for payment terms that help
I've been building sites for myself for years and just recently started building them for others.
I have some template sites that I sell for around $1300 each and most of my custom sites are in the $2500 - $3500 range. I'm probably charging half the rate I should be.
I still have to come up with a decent proposal format and hourly rate to determine price per job.

[edit reason] I edited some specifics [/edit]
I do HTML, CSS, PAY PAL SHOPPING CART, JAVA SCRIPT IMPLEMENTATION OF STOCK SCRIPTS.
The client wants the following pages:
Index / Home Page
Retail Product Pages (5 product categories, each with 5-10 products)
Wholesale Product Pages (5 product categories, each with 5-10 products)
Each product page (both retail and wholesale) will have the following:
-Links to other complimentary products reccommended
-Pay Pal shopping cart "add to cart" buttons with size and color options
The client is thinking about special membership accounts for wholesale customers so they can view wholesale information on pages (that would be invisible to others). I am persuading them against this as a special password protected entrance for wholesale customers to wholesale pages seems to be a more economical way to go. Your thoughts?
Customer wants to hire me on as a W-2 employee for this job. I would be working in their office 1-2 days a week with their team and the rest of the time I will be working from home.
They have product copy and images and a graphic desinger who will be part of the team. They will provide the about us information and service policy information, including privacy and TOS. We will be designing the layout as a team. I will be implementing it and handling the navigation system.
Any help as to what I should charge is greatly appreciated.
