    Billing style

    I possible client is asking me for some web development quotations. So I'd like to know your opinion on billing.

    What the best stress free way to bill clients?

    1. By the hour ? $20/hour
    2. Ask for a retainer ? $200 per month - and charge $5 per page ?
    3. Insert your method here

    I bill by project and am usually able to get full payment in advance (I offer a 5-10% discount for advance payment). I do this part time and my clients are on recurring annual contracts (low $xx,xxx), so this works well for us -- they already know and trust me.

    Occasionally I get a referral for a smaller site, and most go for the full payment in advance for a discount deal.

    Admittedly, I'm probably in the minority as far as full payment in advance goes.
