I was asked for a quote for a website with a very detailed set of requirements. The following exchange took place by email over a period of two days.

Me: Thank you for your enquiry. Here are my rates, and it would take roughly this long from receipt of the signed contract and work order. I’ve attached my standard terms and conditions. Please let me know if you wish to go ahead with the work and I will send you the work order and contract.

Client: Your price is too high. I’d be willing to pay a third of that.

Me: Unfortunately there is a lot of work involved to meet your requirements and that is reflected in the price. I would not be able to undertake the requested work for less than what I’ve quoted you. Would you like me to quote for a simpler website which meets your budget?

Client: I have found someone who would only charge half what you did for all the stuff I want. If you want the job, you’ll have to do it for a third.

Me: I can’t take on the project for less than my quote. If you have another option, I suggest you go with that.

Client:

 Would you do it for a third of your quote if we skipped all the legal stuff like contracts?

Me: No.
