    I don't know how the laws differ in your countries, but over here it is OK to publish your price and tell others what it is. When it becomes illegal is when you collude with your competition to artificially inflate the prices. There is nothing to stop me openly declaring my price, or even asking my competitors what they charge. So here goes:

    As a small 1 man outfit that is only part time, at this stage, I base my pricing on NZ$35/hr (+tax) for standard HTML, site maintenance, content updates, initial consultation time, etc and NZ$75/hr for any dynamic scripting and database stuff, web strategy, business planning and project management.

    For that they will get a much more professional site than from the 16 year old down the road, but I can only aspire to the level of professionalism offered by Jackman. This is a much lower price than most people around here charge, but as yet I don't have the capital to step up to that level and do it full-time.
    Gravity always wins

    I know, It is not illegal here in the USA too. I was just referring to another thread here - some site point admin said it is illegal (closed the thread too).

    As long as a group of people (competiors or not) conspire to come up with a price schedule (does not have to be the same pricing) there is nothing illegal about that. You can ask and tell others what the maket rates are for any product/service.
