The project will be invoiced as follows:
50% at commencement – this is defined as the date at which you inform us via email that you agree to the terms of the proposal and you wish to go ahead. 50% on final project completion – this is defined as the date at which the final product is entered into the live location on your request. Invoice terms are 14 days, agreeing to go ahead means agreeing to pay all invoices within 14 days. Please see our invoice collection policy below for more information on this. Invoices are not refundable. If the client delays the project or decides not to go ahead then we invoice for any time spent over and above the equivilant hours for what has already been invoiced and then we terminate the project. Any invoices already issued are payable. Invoice collection policy WordPress website builder is committed to making sure we help our clients get the most out of the web and offer exceptional value in doing so. This invoicing policy has been written so that clients who regularly pay on time are not disadvantaged by increased costs and restrictions associated with managing clients who do not pay on time. When you engage WordPress website builder you are agreeing to our terms and conditions (including our invoice terms) and therefore agreeing to pay all invoices on time.
All of WordPress website builder invoices have strict 14 day termsunless otherwise agreed. Every 2 weeks we will email all clients with overdue invoices. We will inform them how overdue the invoice is and we will ask for a date when the invoice will be paid. If there are special circumstances we may agree to extend the due date for an additional 14 days. 2 weeks following if the invoice is still outstanding we will call the client and ask for an explanation and ask for a date when the invoice will be paid. They will be informed that the webmaster will keep a note of the due date and for the client to send a remittance to the webmaster when paid. If the invoice is not paid by this date the webmaster may consider one or more of the following: freezing any current workmoving to an up-front payment model for future projectsreducing the amount of concurrent projectstaking the website down and / ordiscontinuing all future work for the client.The same may be considered for clients who continually fail to pay their invoices on time.
There will be no major changes from the current content / design. If we feel the project is going out of scope we will advice you of the additional work and the costs for the work. Timeframes Any timeframes mentioned are a rough guide and may change once a project begins. Some common things that will impact on timeframes include: Clients who do not host with us and have hosting environments which slow down the development processFeedback from the client at the beta deliveryProject on hold If the client puts the project on hold for any reason we will issue an invoice for the amount of time spent to date minus any amount already paid. If the project resumes in the current financial year we will continue with the costings and invoicing identified in the quote. This will be irrespective of what work the client understands to have been undertaken on the project. Site go live When the site is made live on the request of the client that is generally the time when the project is complete and the final invoice is issued. Any changes after this point will be quoted separately and not included in the project (other than bug-fixes fixed as part of the bug-fix warranty). In some cases we may hand the site over to the client before we go live. In these cases this is deemed to be the end of the project and we will issue the final invoice when we do the handover. When the client is ready to go live we will commit to doing this free of charge however it is expected that the invoice will be paid within the terms from the date of issue regardless of the final go live date.

Inappropriate posting may result in account suspension or cancellation. See the newsgroup or mailing list’s charter for whether advertising is allowed or not. “Spamming,” or sending a message to many different off-topic newsgroups, is particularly unethical and will be treated as such. Sending a message, especially an advertisement, to more than five or six recipients, is by itself spamming unless the individuals have specifically requested to be added to a mailing list on that topic.

If you do send more than 2,000 pieces of e-mail per day, your account will be placed on hold for Network Abuse.

You will be charged extra (price determined by WordPress website builder) in addition to your regular hosting charges if your account is moved to this server.
