How AdVision - Invoices for Development Services
AdVision's pricing is based on $125.00 USD for the first hour, then $100.00 USD per each additional hour, billable in 6 min increment - Accesses all departments, Design, Engineering & Programming.
All tasks undertaken by AdVision require estimation and client approval before set up.
Estimates and Invoices are in US dollars and subject to AdVision eCommerce Inc. Terms & Conditions, as read below.
Approval of any estimate, is deemed acceptance of our Terms & Conditions.
Upon estimate approval, 'tasks' are setup within 24 hours M-F. Typically there is between 5 - 7 day time period before our staff is available to address. Once we commence a deadline for completion is set, usually over a period of a few days or so, and shared with the client.
Sequential Development: 'Tasks' are addressed, one by one, usually over a period of a few days or so and payment in full needs to be addressed, prior to starting any new round of tasks that may evolve on any newly approved estimate(s).
AdVision provides written 'Estimates' for our services separated out as individual Task(s) for clarity.
The final total time in hours and minutes to accomplish any Task listed, maybe less or more (+/-) and all depends on the final scope of requirements as submitted by the client during production. The Total time is then adjusted (+/-) and billed as the Task is completed.
Clients are actively involved in the Task within our Development Collaborative, and that helps to maintain a clear understanding as the Task as it is being addressed and there are many opportunities for the client to guide and govern the process.
All Tasks undertaken by AdVision, have associated communication transcripts and timesheets that evolve, and to maintain transparency, clients have access to these reports to help them assess our team's performance and efficiency.
Refunds: If a Task is cancelled by the client during production, the time spent on the Task to the date of cancellation, is billable to the client.
Late fees: Added one-time fee of 10% on balance due upon 30 days overdue from the project completion date on delinquent accounts.
Note: Each item on our estimate usually presents a 'Time Range' for the time needed within that item and the estimate is always based on the 'mid-end' of the 'time range'.
- If there are any additional hours on any item over what is estimated, they are billable to the client and therefore, the initial production invoice would be updated after the project/Task is closed.
- If the times are less, a 'credit' is set up for the client and the client can choose to have a refund issued or use the credit towards future work.
-- Estimates under $3,500: 75% Deposit & Balance On Completion
