support and work philosophy

I will be glad to offer you my support services, concerning your eCommerce endeavour in the X-Cart platform.

I always aim at fully grasping your business requirements. For me, it has always been  of utmost importance to clarify any issues regarding your site needs, so I can proceed with a preliminary analysis of any relevant tasks and a quote formulation.

I usually give fixed-price (per project) quotes, after a very thourough analysis and assessement of each task/project.

As a customer, you will always know in advance the final cost for a specific task/project so there is no margin for any misapprehension from both sides.

Regarding my fee, I can be payed via Paypal, usually by sending you a Paypal money request/invoice.

You can send payments through Paypal even if you don't have a Paypal account, by paying through a Paypal invoice that I will send you. This way you can pay directly with credit or debit card without the need of a Paypal account. You can read How can I send money to a PayPal user without having my own PayPal account?

If you do have a Paypal account, you can pay, using your credit or debit card. even if you don't have money in your Paypal account. In case you don't have a Paypal account, it is very easy to go ahead and create one: You can read Send money in a few seconds Paypal page, as well as the Paypal Help Center for any related issue.
Other means of payment can be discussed as well.

For small to medium projects, I usually ask for a 50% advance payment and the rest payment takes place upon completion of the project and final evaluation of the completed tasks from my client. For larger projects, the payment may be split in more parts, i.e., advance payment followed by a 2nd payment, taken place in the middle of the project and last payment upon completion and delivery of the work.

Feel free to ask me any time for a free quote/estimate regarding a project you might be interested in. Please take into account that in order to give you an exact quote, it may take some preliminary investigation of your site, free of charge, depending on the complexity of the project.

For implementing considerable customizations on an X-Cart store, I usually work on a copy of the store on my local development server and I run all required tests. You won't have to worry about disrupting your store's operation during task development. During the final stage, all modified/customized files are uploaded to your server, making sure that the store operation continues unhindered.
