sorry if this is the wrong area to be posting this, but after looking through the other various stackexchange sites, I thought this one was most suitable for my question.
I'm a first year university student who has, in the past, designed and implemented custom websites for paying customers around my community. These websites basically consisted of a simple CMS along with a custom-built template and a few hand-designed pages along with some basic marketing/keywords which I would usually charge only a few hundred dollars for by the time I'm done ($200-$300).
During the past week though, I've picked up another contract in which I will be doing the basic setup and design of a wordpress site (including custom images, template adjustments, keywords etc. like before) which is fine and dandy, but now they've asked for a great deal of php programming and database work as well. So now I'm doing my normal set-up along with a bunch of programming to include stuff like: secure registration, email confirmation, automated password/username recovery, database searches with filters, dynamic profile pages, timeout counters, mass email functions and other items along those sort of lines.
I'm fine with the actual programming behind it all and I've been making great headway thus far, but I've got no idea how to price this for them and they would like me to ballpark a number I think this will cost them for early next week.
I've looked at some of the basic web-pricing forums and programs online and from what I've read, this would cost around the $1000 range coming from a student? The website is for a good cause and I just don't want to cheat them or myself in this endeavour. Any advice would be greatly appreciated here.
