Payment and Terms
All work including phone calls, meetings, design, development, bug fixes, and any other time spent related to a project will be billed at the hourly rate, or fixed rate, as published on https://crack-ajax.com/published-rates-and-pricing/. Any work completed for the Client outside of a defined scope or project agreement will be charged the published hourly rate, or fixed rate, on a separate invoice, billed on the last day of each month.
Any work required to be done by our Client outside of normal business hours will be billed at time-and-a-half of our published rates at https://crack-ajax.com/published-rates-and-pricing/. Normal business hours for Crack-Ajax, LLC are defined as 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Mountain Time, Monday through Friday. Weekends and government holidays are specifically excluded from normal business hours.
Although no travel is likely for this project, if any is required of Crack-Ajax, LLC, it will be billed at both time and travel expenses and written approval from our Client is required. Travel for on-site Training is exempt from travel expenses.
A deposit of up to 50% is generally required to start work. An invoice will be sent with easy payment options including check, PayPal, Stripe or an alternative payment gateway with an online credit card payment processor. The remainder of the final balance for work done will be invoiced when the project is delivered and deployed, or on the last day of each month for the duration of the project.
Undiscovered problems (bugs) are a natural part of custom software development. Crack-Ajax, LLC will make every effort to find and fix bugs before delivering our work. There is no way to find them all though and some will likely be discovered after delivery – sometimes long after the code is deployed. As noted below, all work including bugs fixes, are billed at actual time spent (see Payment and Terms above).
