A deposit is due prior to our 1 hour consultation for any Web Design service as well as before any work begins on a project. All deposits are non-refundable and are payable through PayPal, email money transfers or cash. Unless otherwise specified in writing, the client is charged the remaining balance upon completion of the project. Website credentials as well as theme and plugin licenses are given to the client when all payments are cleared. If a project is cancelled or abandoned and the final payment is not completed, Designer Boss holds all rights to the assets, theme and plugins used to design the website.
60 day payment plans are available for Tailor-Made Website Packages where the payment may be split into 5 installments which are due on the 15th and 1st of the month (see TIMELINE & PAYMENT PLAN tab for example and details).

1ST PAYMENT/DEPOSIT DUE A MINIMUM OF 2 WEEKS PRIOR TO START DATE
Once your deposit is paid, you can book your 1 hour consultation where we will go over everything you will need to have ready for me by the start date. I will then email you a detailed Project Outline and Checklist to help you get started.

2ND PAYMENT DUE ON THE START DATE WHICH IS THE 1ST OF THE MONTH
All of your content is due no later than the 1st so that I can get started. This includes images and written content such as product/service descriptions, prices, terms & conditions etc.
JULY 15, 2019
3RD PAYMENT DUE ON THE 15TH OF THE MONTH
This is also when I will be sending you an email with a link to the 1st draft of your website for feedback on the design. To avoid project delays, I ask that you respond within 3 (max 5) business days so that I will have ample time to make the revisions.

4TH PAYMENT DUE ON THE 1ST OF THE MONTH
If the project is on schedule your website should be ready to launch in 1 month which means the launch date would be on the 1st of the month. If the website is ready to go live, I will send over the login credentials and you will have full access to your website.
AUGUST 15, 2019
5TH PAYMENT DUE ON THE 15TH OF THE MONTH
The website can be completed and live during this period of time and the client may have access to the back-end of their website.
Failure to pay on agreed upon dates, may result in project delays, website suspension until payments are made, or a termination of the sales contract depending on the stage of project and circumstances. I understand that unforeseen events may occur so if you do need a payment extension, please notify me in advance.
Before you can get online you need to sign up for hosting and register a domain name. Hosting is basically like purchasing your own piece of land in the internet world to build your website on. A domain name is your web address (example: www.mybusinessname.com)
Designer Boss is not responsible for any web Hosting or Domain registration fees after the initial 1 year free term mentioned in the website packages details. Hosting and Domain are purchased through SiteGround.com and are mandatory in order to begin a web design project. Once the 1 year term is up for renewal, the client is responsible to pay for their hosting at the renewal rate specified by SiteGround (approximately $11.95/mth for hosting and $15.99/year for the domain name)
