Sorry about the somehow vague title, an email correspondence prompted me to ask this question.
I had a job to do, requires custom coding and as I became very busy I needed someone to do it due to time constraint but the reply was he would do the job for $9000.00 - $14000.00. The guy is a very experienced programmer anyway, an Indian.
Now, the job requires a directory listing with categories and subcategories, a user management system where users can logon and manage their subscriptions including payment system, admin section where every single part of the website can be managed without any need for the admin understanding php (hence a common API forms were used a lot), searchable business listings based on business category and country.
What would you charge for such a job?
Do you think the $9000.00 - $14000.00 is too much?
The link to the site is www.justwebservices.com/dapo (not yet finished anyway but the project is over 90% done)
Just random thoughts anyway but felt like sharing this with other people.
Many thanks for your time.
