Hi,

Yes Tom I do realize, but regardless of the hourly rate if you quote a customer on 44 hours
and the customers view is "checkout carts are a dime a dozen", and advises you event 16 hour
seems way too much time for such a simply application request . . . well then there is a disconnect.
I asked about the time to ensure I was not 100% out to lunch with some new programming
methodology - lol

I low balled the price as there was a high potential for future work with their inventory
control moving to the web and also the high possibility of taking the on-line web orders
and 100% integrating them right into the clients Simply Accounting software.

I honesty think this web checkout card would end up in the 60-70 hours area or the better
part of 2 weeks of work.
