Depending on what type of project you need and the specifics of the work you want done, the price varies from project to project. I offer a flat rate for most services based on your needs and sometimes charging by the hour will work better for both of us. Either way, I work quickly, efficiently to give you great service and value for your money.
Below outlines the general dealings with money. Read it. If you have any questions, just ask!
website (re)design & project based work
After our consultation, you’ll get a quote for the custom website (re)design. All requests made outside the scope of the original quote will result in additional fees. A $250 deposit is required to place your work in the queue.
For projects under $500, 100% of remaining amount is due and payable before work on the project starts.
For projects over $500, 50% of the balance is due before work starts. Unless other arrangements were made, the remaining balance is due within 30 days of design approval or prior to the site launch (or project completion), whichever comes first.
NOTE: Once initial payment is submitted, it’s accepted as an agreeement to the outlined Statement of Work.
Invoices for hourly services are emailed every Friday, unless monthly billing is requested, in which case, invoices are emailed on the first Friday of the month.
All time spent on your project is billable, this includes phone calls, e-mail or text correspondence, implementation, development, research, analysis, coding, project management, trainings, documentation or any other activity needed to ensure your work is done to the highest level.
Psst! Let’s make the workflow efficient and to reduce billable time. Be as clear and detailed as possible, edit and organize materials before sending them to me, and combine your requests into as few emails as possible.
All payments are due within 15 days of the invoice unless prior arrangements have been made.
hosting & domain name registration
Hosting is invoiced monthly or (annually). Domain name registration is invoiced annually.
Failure to pay by the due date could result in a suspension of hosting and/or loss of domain name.
NOTE: If Amy Susan Design isn’t hosting your website, please be aware that hosting support is generally considered billable time.
how to make payments
Invoices can be paid with checks, money orders or major credit cards via PayPal, Stripe or Square in US funds only. PayPal, Stripe or Square may require a nominal service charge.
website (re)design payment plans
I truly get that funds can be tight sometimes and you may need a little flexibility. Just let me know and I’ll work with you to spread out the payments over several months. I’ll present several interest free plans, which includes a monthly administration and extension fee with each payment.
*Payment plans require the use of Amy Susan Design’s hosting until the balance is paid in full.
If you miss a scheduled or invoiced payment by more than 7 days, a 10% late fee is added to your payment each 30-day period until the full amount is paid.
All work stops until payment, including the late fees are paid.
NOTE: You’ll be liable for any legal costs (debt collectors, administration charges, legal fees) incurred to recover the payments and late fees.
If your check is returned for insufficient funds, your payment plus an additional $25 returned check fee by cash or money order is due within 3 days.
Communication is the preferred method of working out problems, issues and to make our collaborative projects go more smoothly.
