What ever you do, don't try to develop this yourself. Unless you have tremendous talent and resources, this is an impossible job. I can tell the client is looking for much more than you realize. Be a consultant and chosse and implement and existing solution, let the client pay for the software, and you estimate you time. Why re-invent the wheel. Charge seperatly for integration work, design, sysadmin. This is a huge job.

Im looking for some more wisdom from the experts. This question is mainly aimed at UK web developers... Ive developed a lot of sites but they have nearly always been for friends or by recommendation and I have therefore been in a vicious circle of undercharging for jobs so as not do damage relations etc... I have been asked to develop a site for wine sales incorporating online selling, stock management and order processing, the whole shebang... I have no idea how much such a site should cost to develop and once again its for a friend who has no concept of the cost of web work Could someone give me some sort of guidelines. I find this quite a daunting topic since there are no set standards for how much web development costs -- For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archive of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
