1. LinkBright Media Website Design & Development Services
- We ask for 50% to 100% deposit for the design and development of websites and related services which are arranged via the PeoplePerHour.com website. The deposit will be paid into an Escrow service before work commences and that amount will be released within 7 days of the project completion.
- For projects which we work on directly with clients, and not via the PeoplePerHour.com website, we charge for the design and development of websites as follows: Before we start work, a 50% deposit of the total sum due is payable. When the website design is approved by you and the home page is completed, a further 25% is due (design payment). The final 25% is payable when the website is complete and ready to be published (final payment) Your website will only be switched to ‘live’ mode when it has been paid for, in full. The initial deposit payment is non-refundable after LinkBright Media has spent time working on the project.
- LinkBright Media will charge a 2% fee for all payments made using PayPal. This fee is charged due to the costs incurred by LinkBright Media for receiving such payments by our service provider. If this is not acceptable to the client, we also accept direct bank payments (BACS).
- LinkBright Media own all design and code of the website until final payment has been received in full.
