What price should I be charging, as a PHP developer?
What factors do I need to consider?
The better I get at programming, the more I appreciate arrays. Handy dandy things they are.
Price depends on: size of customers, experience, quality, what competition charges, demand, etc.
Don't expect to be billing 40 hours a week, especially at the beginning.
Be sure to add 5% for vacation time.
Be sure to charge tax if you have to pay it.
If you worked 40 hours a week, and wanted to make $50,000 per year, you'd charge $25/hour. But you likely wont have 40 billable hours per week, so to make that salary you may want to charge $30-$40 per hour.
Use time tracking software like ziptimetracker.com to keep track of your billable hours and send invoices to your clients at the end of the month.
Also depends upon where you live as well.
From hundreds of dollars per hour should you land a plum job to a few dollars an hour from hire an indian PHP developer.
More accurate question is what YOU are worth.
Are you a php dev or someone with a heck of a lot more than that adding value to the project?
