  • Though they can be categorized, websites are rarely identical or the same, so designers are forced to quote each client differently.
  • The value that website designers give to their time is different. Someone may charge $10 per hour while another charges $125 for the same length of time. Guess you will get the impression of the differences in quality assumed by the price differences. That is often the case.
  • The number and size of jobs the designer has. When designers are very busy they oft use price to filter off a certain type of clients. Surprisingly clients who negotiate the most are the fussiest, difficult and they tend to behave as if they are the only client.
