Terms of Agreement:
- Authorization: The above-named Client is engaging EKIMANIT.COM, here as known as “Developer” as an independent contractor for the specific purpose of developing and/or improving a web site.
- One-Time Design Fee: The one-time fee for a new standard website design is $250.00 USD for five web pages.
An E-Commerce website is an additional one-time fee of $100.00 USD.
Example: A web site with eight menu buttons; e.g., Home, Services, Events, Pricing, Testimonials, Shopping, About Us, Contact Us, would cost $295.00 (5 pages @ $250.00, plus 3 additional web pages @ $15.00 each). Additional cost for E-commerce page @ $100.00.
- Standard Web Site: Web page content will be supplied and executed as specified by the Client.
- Domain Registration: At the Client’s request, the Developer will help to secure a domain name for the Client. If the Client already has a domain name, the Developer will coordinate redirecting the address to the new host. All charges incurred in doing so will be the responsibility of the Client.
- Web Hosting: Web hosting is included in the Maintenance Fee. Maintenance fees are not incurred until website completion. The Client agrees to setup ACH (automatic bank draft). The ACH fee is $64.95 USD per month. If E-commerce is included, the total fee is $74.95 USD per month. The Client has the choice of the 1st or the 15th of the month billing date. Please make your selection:
Payment Method – ACH, Monthly Billing Date: ______ 1st or _____ 15th
E-Commerce: If you want to sell products online, we can assist you in establishing an online store. We use WooCommerce which includes everything you need to setup your online store and sell goods and services online. Setup fee is $100.00 USD and will add $10.00 to the maintenance fee.
PayPal Account: The Client must have a PayPal account to enable the ability to accept credit cards as well as PayPal payments online. Any charges necessary to secure the PayPal Account are the responsibility of the Client.
Secure Certificate: EKIMANIT.COM uses WooCommerce for its E-Commerce application and provides an SSL certificate. If the Client selects an alternate E-Commerce application, the Client is responsible for securing SSL certificates for online transactions. The Client understands that if they do not obtain a secure certificate, design capabilities on the shopping cart are not secure and may be limited.
- Additional Expenses: Client agrees to reimburse the Developer for any critical Client requested expenses necessary for the completion of the project. Examples would be:
* Purchase of specific fonts at the Client’s request,
* Purchase of specific photography at the Client’s request.
* Purchase of specific software/plugins at the Client’s request.
- Work Schedule and Completion Date:
* Site Development Package: Client will mail or fax the signed SOW agreement. All other data needed to start the website, including design ideas, text, company logo, photo(s), etc. can be emailed to [email protected]. The one-time design fee can be mailed via check or deducted via ACH at the Clients request. Once funds are received, website development will begin.
* Web Site Design: Developer will then create the new website and provide the Client a “wire-frame” design draft no later than twenty (20) days after receipt of site development package.
* Design Review: Client will be asked to review the initial design and discuss any modifications with Developer.

- Client Amends / Changes: Developer prides himself in providing excellent customer service. That is the spirit of the Developer’s business. To that end, we encourage input from the Client during the design process.
The Developer understands, however, that Clients may request significant design changes to pages that have already been built to the Client’s specification. To that end, please note that our agreement does not include a provision for significant page modification or creation of additional pages in excess of our agreed page(s). If significant page modification is requested after a page has been built to the Client’s specification, we must count it as an additional page; a charge of $15.00 USD will be assessed to the Client.
Some examples of significant page modification at the request of the Client include:
* Developing a new table or layer structure to accommodate a substantial redesign.
* Recreating or significantly modifying the company logo graphic.
* Replacing more than 75% of the text to any given page.
* Creating a new navigation structure or changing the link graphics.
* Significantly reconfiguring the Client’s shopping cart with new product, shipping or discount calculation if an e-commerce enabled site has been selected by the Client.
