New: Effective October 9, 2017: Hourly rate is $90.00, with 2 billable hours minimum. Partial hours past third hour are rounded down to the nearest full billable hour. Project-based rates are calculated based on a minimum-time required estimate plus 15 percent. Any project that runs for more than three months or continues indefinitely will be billed monthly.
Our service fees reflect the reasonable costs to keep our services available to those who need them. Our business model favors a slow yet sustainable growth, and portions of the profit are reinvested into expanding and improving our offerings.
In general, the standard service rate is calculated at $90.00 per billable hour, with 2 billable hours minimum, payable in U.S. dollars or equivalent value.
Billable hours represent our minimum time commitment to your project; more often than not, we include "bonus" work on top of invoiced billable hours at no extra cost to you, but this is only as time allows and is not guaranteed. Usually, therefore, our service rate delivers more value to you than it appears.
Any actual and specific expenses related to and arising from the service are your responsibility and are not included in the hourly service rate.
To keep things simple and to keep costs low for everyone, all accounts are conducted on a cash basis. We do not extend trade credit, e.g., net 30. Payments are payable upon invoice. Installment payments are available only for long-term service agreements that go longer than three months.
We do not prey on those who have no money by imposing late fees, early cancellation fees, etc.
