Engagement and Payment
After discussing your project goals and agreeing that we could work together, JMD may, depending on the type of project, offer to draw up an initial design concept. If this is to the client’s satisfaction we will agree on financial terms and a plan of action to build and develop a website or design project together. At this stage, the client is free to walk away at no cost to them.

If we are told that the project is to proceed, to ensure client commitment a deposit of between 30% and 50% is paid. The exact amount of the deposit will depend on the size and complexity of the project. This deposit payment is referred to as an “initial payment” and forms the contract between ourselves and you the customer. It is your way of telling us that you are committed to having JMD work on your project, and it is part of our agreement that we will honour your request for the work we are agreeing to undertake.

On more complex projects payments may be staged as certain goals are reached. These goals will be agreed at the outset of the project. When the initial payment is paid work will commence on the project.

When the project is complete and the client is happy with the work, the remainder of the payment is due to be paid within 7 days. When full payment is made the website will be launched or the client will receive final project artwork and all copyrights will be signed over to the client. The client will not own the website or work until payment is recieved in full.
