    In my pricing:

    Joomla site that use premium templates = RM 2500 (Thats if am designing the template, if I purchase the template online, then I will charge less however the client pay for the template).

    Joomla site with extra modules = depends on how many extra modules and how complex are these modules.but minimum RM2700.

    Joomla site with heavy redesign = charge the same as designing a premium template, since both involve heavy graphic and CSS design

    Thats my rate..

    Feel for you bro.

    But hey don't let them take ur money. Bug them until they give you your money. If nothing worked, take out the website from the server. I hope you still have the login id for the server. I always keep it with me, and I don't give it until I get my whole money.

    and for next time, I advise you to take down payment 30% when the project starts, and breakdown the project into a list major milestones, and for each milestone you collect another 10 or 15% upon completion. For example,

    Milestone one: Interface Design
    Milesstone two: CSS templating
    Milestone three: Install Module 1...etc


    Gudluck in your fight!

    Send them a letter / notice with details of the work you have done, the date ordered, the date completed, the charges, the invoice number, the terms and other relevant details.

    At the end add a paragraph of how long the payment has been outstanding and state a date by which you expect the payment. State that the website will be taken down if the payment is not received by the due date. If payment is made after that, there will be an additional late fee charges added, and then the website will be re-activated.

    You should not charge double now as that was not the price initially quoted. If your work was much more than you quoted, you should have quoted a higher price in the first place. Consider this as a mistake and a lesson learnt.

    Tell the client that others would have charged much more than you did. If he is not happy and does not want to pay the full amount, you can take down the site and he can find another designer. Hopefully he will be charged much more and in the end he will lose.

    You should get payment for the price initially quoted and not less according to what the client wants to pay.

    This is the problem with people these days. They want everything cheap and at a discount, like as if the other party (the supplier or designer etc) does not have to make money for a living. If you ask the client whether he would accept less money for something he was selling at a certain price, do you think he would? No, when it comes to them, they must get their money. When it is other people's money, they don't have to pay the amount or in time. Very bad attitude some people have these days.

    Make sure you give notice and warning etc of what you are going to do. If the client stil does not pay, then you cannot be blamed for removing the site without prior notice.

    Let us know how it goes. We can all learn from such experiences.

    It's extra difficult, working as a freelancer to get these things right. When I worked for software houses, there were project managers, sales droids, accountants and directors all 'managing' the outcome of projects and relationships with clients. The thing I think is most important is to make sure the client knows in advance exactly what is going to happen.

    As a freelancer, writing a specification or a project plan (like a forecast of what and when - deliverables and payments) can seem a bit of a distraction when you just want to edit code. But when the hit fits the shan, you can point to the piece of paper (or the email!) the client signed to explain to them what will happen next. If it's "no pay=site down", then it's the client's own action that determines the outcome, not some arbitrary retaliation on your part.

    Having a specification is good for self-control too. If you know you're only going to be paid RM1,000 you definitely won't do RM2,000 worth of work!

    mylinear's right - all these things need advance preparation and prior notice. If you didn't prepare and things go wrong, you might just have to accept a loss. Everybody learns the hard way once! I once agreed to do some work in the 80s. Back then a PC cost 75% of annual salary, and development software three times that. When the client disappeared a couple of months after I started, and I had no evidence of a contract ... well, it was a long time before I considered freelancing again! Still, I had a good machine for playing Solitaire on. I wish I'd kept it. Apricot Qi with Micro Channel Architecture. Probably worth something to a museum somewhere now.

    I totally agree with mylinear. Stick to your word. If the client won't honor his word, you should honor yours. and I've seen the website you did, and must say it worth more than your price. It is a good piece of work. It doesn't matter how much you get paid now, you did a good job, you satisfied yourself, and thats what matter.

    I suggest one thing to make this project work out for you somehow. Take out the website from your current client, and use the design for something else, or host a modified version of the website and host it in your own server, and use it as a good showcase in your portfolio. I liked the design, and I think if you showed to your future clients, it will help you win their work, so somehow you getting some money out of it in one way or another..

    keep up the good work, and tell us the updates.

    If I were you, and the client does not pay, I will not deal with this client anymore. You need to know when to cut your losses. There may be another job there, but you may end up having the same problem with payment again. And you will have to continue to deal with this client later on as well.

    If you don't stand up for yourself or drop the client, it will seem to them that they can easily abuse you and not pay you properly and yet you will still do everything for them. Don't lower yourself just because you think they are from some upper class. We are all humands in the end, although some people like this don't act like one. Business is business, but you must have some self worth and pride too.

    With the client acting this way and not even able to communicate with you in a decent manner, why would you want to subject yourself to more of this? I know it is money for you from the job, but you could spend the time you are wasting with this client to find other suitable clients for yourself.

    Next time make sure to state clearly the payment terms. Collect a deposit before you start the job so at least you have something.

    Hope it works out for you in the end.

    Hey, take this advise from me, RUN AWAY from this client as far as you could. Don't take another job with them. Just try to end this job and get your money, and never see them again. Such rude clients don't worth working for them even for 10k. I rather have peace of mind and my dignity than get money from cheap clients like this one.

    RUN AWAY man, RUN AWAY!

    me also some kind of fed up to do a website for others.. they think that was easy, demanding for lowest price until rm200.. but they demand everything and the job seems never end.. update there.. update here..
    so now.. if someone who i know.. ask me to do website, i rather teach them on how to do a website and let them suffer
