Is my outsourcing costing me to much

12 replies
My outsourcing source from the phelipines is charging me 800 for a website:
Discription: wp, 8 pages, shopping cart,
Sub menus, 2 languages, social media plug ins.

This is my biggest job and I'm not sure how much this should be costing me.
He told me that he is doing me a favour bc I bring him jobs and usually he would charge 1200.

    It all depends...
    What do you mean when you say too much?
    What kind of sites do they produce?
    What kind of quality?
    How much are you selling it for?
    Are you happy with the margins?

    Nah, Sounds like a bit of a deal to me. That is, of course, if they get the work done and it's to your liking. That's usually the gripe I hear from people: the work is crap, takes too long, or it simply doesn't get done.

    800 is pretty damn cheap for an e-commerce site of any sort.

    If they only setting up Wordpress then that sounds like a lot to me, as it could be done in a single day. If it is a full custom design, then yes that doesnt sound too bad at all given the quality is there.

    i pay 1200 to my outsourcer for ecommerce sites. Sounds like you are getting a good deal. I sell them for more than 3 times the price though at the very least.

      Same here. If I use my outsourcer for ecommerce I'm paying $1250-$1350. Good deal. Just make sure the quality is good.

        If you are outsourcing then pricing depends on value - are your getting professional quality work and every milestone is reached on time, are you paying after the previewing the work or before.

        Also to consider, is the site 'Secure', because there are gangs on the net that will block ecommerce sites for ransom or hackers just doing it for fame.

        I always develop websites on my server, let the customer 'run' it, you get to test a functional site before making any payments, further payments are requested upon completing predetermined milestones.

        Customer satisfaction is of paramount importance and that is what brings them back for more

    For phelipines it is too big charge.
    They use wp,if they use raw php then it is right.
    By the way you can try another client out of phelipines,then decide according to the budget.

    You will also go with a affordable web development company that will work on per hour basis. That will be very cost effective.

    IMO this is only a good deal if you do not have to micromanage him and if the job will be done properly in a decent amount of time. One of the biggest problems with working with outsourcers is your idea of a completed project and their idea are two different things. If your idea and their idea is the same, then you're getting a great deal.
    You need to be on the same page regarding quality of work, time of delivery and most of all scope of the project.

    Okay, that being said it also depends on how much you're charging your client for the site. Make sure you have included your time for managing, and testing the site. Then, if you like the margin between how much you're charging and how much you're paying then you're getting a good deal.

    I hope this helps,

    Airborne!
