A friend of mine sent me a request from an acquaintance who was looking for a web designer. I emailed him to ask what he was looking for.

Client: I’m looking for a Website Developer who is great with e-commerce portals and setting up a Front End page Login/Registration. Pay is $40 for 2 hours because if you need more time you’re not very good! Must be excellent with back-end sites based in WordPress formats.

Me: That seems low, but if it’s a small project maybe I could turn it around quickly. What exactly do you need?

Client: I need a custom registration page to gather customer information and with multiple options of plans to choose from, some single-priced and some subscription-based. Then I need to be able to have them pay with PayPal and/or take credit cards both for the single payments and on a recurring basis. Based on their registration choice I need them to have access to different parts of the main website. It's just a quick fix. If you know what you are doing it won’t take you more than two hours.

Me: What you’re asking for is actually quite complicated, would take longer than two hours, and would cost significantly more than $40.

Client: I don’t have a ton of money with this project that has taken 3 years and lots of time, energy, and money already. Plus let’s live in reality, $20-$25 an hour for any gig is great in today’s workplace!

Needless to say I ran away from this job as fast as I could.
